Maxi skirts and maxi dresses are a favorite summer staple. But, when fall and winter roll around, they’re generally relegated to the back of the closet. This weekend, put the max back in your wardrobe and go long with a wintery maxi look.

No matter the season, the trick to a successful maxi skirt or dress look is to ensure that your figure isn’t lost in a sea of fabric. The easiest way to balance the volume of a long, flowy skirt is with a lean top. In winter, swap a summery tank top for a cozy small knit sweater layered with a fitted jacket.

Use accessories and pattern to have some fun with your style and keep the eye moving. I especially like the way the sporty stripes and colorful accessories in this look contrast with the uber-femininity of the skirt to give the a playful vibe.
