When you think of the maxi dress, no doubt your mind instantly goes to Summer dresses in soft fabrics thrown over a bikini on holiday, or dressed up with heels and a clutch during wedding season. But those ankle-skimming styles aren't just reserved for the warmer months. In fact, street style stars (and some celebs) have cottoned on to the fact that the Winter maxi can often be an even more eye-catching proposition. When reimagined in heavy Winter fabrics, or with added sleeves, ruffles, and dark accents, the maxi loses its beachy vibe and becomes something more edgy. But it can be difficult to know what to wear with it: in Summer, the answer is almost exclusively just "sandals," but in Winter, it can be harder to pull a look together and stay warm. Luckily, we've got all the inspiration you need ahead. Let these stylish ladies show you how to clash prints, layer up, show off your new statement coat, and make all those pretty, floor-length styles last you right through to next year.
