Who said the maxi dress was for summer? In winter, it goes perfectly with a big knitted sweater and pretty heeled boots or with a perfecto and white sneakers.
For several seasons, the long dress has been popular. Ultra-feminine, it adapts to all body types and can be worn in any season. Want to let yourself be tempted? We give you some tips to adopt this trend perfectly in winter and some pretty shopping inspirations.
Which design to choose?
In winter, turn to warm and comfortable materials (such as wool or cotton) and favor long-sleeved designs if you are the chilly type. You can also perfectly reuse your summer dresses, as long as you add a few layers to warm you up.
As for colors, opt either for shades which bring cheerfulness and which give a good glow (discover here the colors which highlight your complexion), or for printed models which bring character to your outfit (flowers, animal prints, peas…).
What to put on top?
In this cool weather, it is important to cover yourself well. Over your winter dress, don’t hesitate to wear a warm sweater, a coat, a perfecto or a cape-poncho. In all cases:
Combine different styles and / or materials: for example, wear a satin dress with a pretty knit sweater. Comfort assured!
You can buy all your favorite designs of ready to wear women clothing.
Play with volumes: don’t hesitate to combine your long dress with an oversized short jacket or a perfecto if the weather is nice. The long coat will also be very elegant over your dress, as long as you opt for a large bag to break the verticality of the look.
Accessorize: enhance your look with jewelry made in Belgium, a pretty hat or a belt tightened at the waist to structure your silhouette. A nice handbag will also make all the difference.
With or without tights
In winter, a good pair of tights is a must. Either way, with a maxi dress, no one will see them! However, split or mid-length styles that show off a little bit of your legs are more elegant when worn without tights or with flesh tights. Be careful, however, to choose it well, we give you some advice here. Are you really uncomfortable wearing tights?

Which shoes to choose
The biggest difficulty when wearing a dress in winter is always the choice of shoes. Don’t panic, the long dress is actually quite easy to match. Here are some ideas of designs to favor:
Sneakers: If the weather is good and you want to be comfortable, you can wear your dress with a nice pair of sneakers. In recent years, sneakers have officially gone with everything, so don’t be afraid to pair them with your dress for a casual look.
Boots: the long dress combines very well with a nice pair of boots or flat ankle boots, with heels or platform. The last two options are ideal for the little ones.
High boots: this season, the long or mid-length dress can also be worn with a pretty pair of high boots or cowboy boots.
