How to style maxi dresses for fall/ autumn 2016

Hey everyone! Lets talk about maxi dresses today. All of us love to wear them in the summer time, which is great but i feel they are actually more appropriate for cooler weather with all the fabric to cover you! And all the layering that is possible underneath and over them. I have put together some great ways to wear them this fall/ autumn winter but before that let me talk about eShakti the brand this maxi dress is from. 

Shakti in Sanskrit means power and the brand truly lives up to that. It gives you the power to customize your clothes to your size and hence liberate from the typical size tag. We all have diff bodies and though we might fit into a standard size its not the perfect fit in all respect, you get what i am trying to say, right! So at eShakti you can customize your clothes to fit your body to the T. Here's how it works- choose a design, give your measurements, customize to your style (neckline, hemline, sleeves, what not..) and then receive your box of joy in 10-14 days as simple as that. I had such a great experience ordering my dress, easy peasy, delivered on time in the exact form as i had imagined, definitely ordering more given they have such a huge selection of styles in prints, solids and self detailed options for any occasion be it formal or casual. Their bridal section is great too and you also have the option to choose from their standard sizes 0-36W, just in case.
eShakti has also given an exclusive 10% dis to all readers of thestyletune valid between 26 aug 2016 - 30 sep 2016, code 'thestyletune'

And here are some ways to style maxi dresses for fall/autumn winter 2016.

  1. the first things to go for before going to layering are a) choosing maxis with thicker fabric and b) choosing warm colors and shades like this one with maroon and black.
  2. wearing warm color footwear is also a great way to wear maxis right now and the trendy block platform style as worn here is perfect to prevent the dress from skimming the floor as well balanced enough for both day or night wear.
  3. add interesting accessories like a choker or do your hair in a fun hairdo to look fresh for 2016.
  4. wear your pants/ jeans/ tights or leggings underneath, a huge trend for this year is to wear your dresses over trousers, i specially love side slit dresses worn over trousers for this fall/ autumn/ winter.
  5. wear a polo neck top or sweater under to stay chic and warm
  6. wear the breezy boho dresses with leather jackets to make them edgy, fun details to try for this year are shearling or fur collars.
  7. velvet boots (going to be sold out) , ankle boots in jacquard, mid calf length sock boots, shoe boots or over the knee boots (majorly discounted) pair beautifully with maxis but two cooler shoe styles for this year are the loafers and sneakers.
  8. longline outer wear looks even more impactful paired with maxis, classic blazers ever so chic and fur vests and jackets look a lot fun and how can we forget the bomber jackets.
  9. bandana and scarves around your neck look interesting and also a great way to do print mixing with your printed maxis.

  28. Chichi, girl, you look so beautiful in this unique maxi dress! I'm so picky when it comes to maxi anything and I think it's because it makes up for so much in an outfit, that I really look for pieces that have some unique elements or fabric and this gorgeous! I love the color combination and the chevron pattern on the bottom. I also agree with you that they do seem to be more appropriate for cooler weather and your suggestions on styling them then are wonderful! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the most amazing weekend ahead!
