Trending: The Long Sleeve Maxi Dress

It’s beginning to look a lot like Winter, which means subbing Summer’s flowy dresses and skin for restrictive skinny jeans. NOT. Cozy up to one of our favorite styles of the season: the Long Sleeve Maxi Dress. It’s all of the comfort and feminine style of the original, minus the chill factor. Sort of like the love child of Mrs. Rabbit and a snuggie, but with far more bohemian flair.

Read on for our tops picks and how to wear the trend….

A head-to-toe cover-up can go the route of matronly if styled with the wrong pieces. Here’s a quick guide to getting it right:
* Start with a style that involves a fitted silhouette and/or a flash of skin (a leg slit, a v-neck, a low back). Something to keep you from being consumed by the dress.
* If it’s a loose silhouette, try adding belt to define your waistline
* Footwear: heeled boots/booties are ideal for Fall/Winter styling. An added bonus: if your dress is a bit long, a heeled boot will give the illusion of extra long legs. Which is never a bad thing.
