Hey, guys! Hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s been soooo hot here in PA it’s insane. I saw a meme that said “Hope you’re having a great July 71st!” No joke! I’m ready for it to cool down a little. The leaves have still turned and are dropping though, so at least it looks like fall if nothing else 🙂
One of my favorite trends for fall this season is the long sleeve maxi dress! I love wearing dresses because they’re more comfortable and I like to be dressed up and look nice. Why not? 🙂 I usually get a bit disappointed when cooler weather comes around because I typically go back to wearing jeans. But, I’m loving these maxis for colder weather! It’ so easy to wear and works for work or pleasure!
I found this C/MEO Collective maxi dress at Shopbop.com during their sale a few weeks ago. It has since gone on sale even more at other stores! YAY! If you find it in your size at one of the stores where it’s not on sale, you can usually send them a screen shot of it on sale elsewhere and they will match it for you. I have no idea why ASOS has it listed for $316?! It was never that high to begin with anywhere, so that’s pretty puzzling. But, you can contact customer service and hopefully they would help you out!
I LOVE the colors and pattern of this dress! It screams fall romance! It’s cheetah maybe? Haha, I think it is a cheetah print. I’m seeing so many animal prints lately that they’re all starting to look the same! But, I really do love this one. It’s classy and sexy at the same time! The cut is also stunning! I love the plunging neckline and the buttons down the front. It has a lining to the knees and is sheer from the knees down with a pretty little slit and flowing skirt. Can we talk about these sleeves?! So gorgeous. I’m in love with the balloon sleeve. It’s such a statement and makes this dress look so high fashion! It really does look more expensive than it is.
I paired this with some strappy square toe shoes from ASOS that I got this summer. However, when it does get cooler, this dress would look amazing with some black boots! I love it with over-the-knee or slouchy boots (see the dresses in the widget below – a lot are modeled this way). Slouchy boots are really in this season. Check out my post on Fall 2019 Boot Trends here. You can also rock this with some booties! A suede or faux suede would be so cute!
Maxi dresses are great for colder weather because you get the extra coverage, and you can wear tall boots with them, so you won’t freeze like I typically do in mini dresses. I love this look paired with a leather moto jacket over top, or a cardigan sweater, too. It’s versatile and can be worn for lots of different occasions.
I’ve linked a bunch of my favorites at reasonable prices for you below! What do you think of this trend? Let me know in the comments. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂
