A floral maxi dress might seem like something you have to retire in the fall (especially in places like Chicago and New York!), but with the right layering, it can be surprisingly versatile! (As long as it’s the right color palette… Neutrals and fall hues work best! Not so sure a hot pink maxi is going to look seasonally appropriate, haha.)
I love the colors of this dress… navy blue, dark green, winter white, and a little pop of mustard yellow. If you’re wanting to experiment with color more, you could pop a cozy yellow sweater *over* the dress for a different look. For a lunch meeting at Beatrix last week (or maybe two weeks ago), I paired it with a cream turtleneck underneath and an olive green moto jacket on the top. The dress has a slit on one side so suede over the knee boots too the place of tights! I’m so not ready for tights season yet, you guys.
For sizing notes, I’m wearing a medium in the dress, but could have probably gotten away with a small! Runs true to size. For the turtleneck, definitely size up! I’m wearing a medium and it’s still very fitted. But I got it to wear under dresses this season (it’s cropped), so I don’t mind it being tight!
