Adding a maxi dress to your winter wardrobe can be as simple as adding great boots, some warm tights, or a pretty sweater. With the right casual maxi dresses, your spring and fall wardrobes can stretch into the chill darkness of winter.

Color is Key

A dress made of a light fabric with lots of color is the easiest to use in any season. The Jaya Tunic made of navy blue rayon will serve you for many seasons to come. Add a tank or a tee under this dress to keep your torso warm, add a cozy pair of tights or use grey or brown boots to keep your feet and ankles warm.

This dress is quick to wash and easy to hang until it’s both dry and wrinkle free. Enjoy!

Use Button-Front Garments

One the hottest days, even a long-sleeved button front Eden Dress can be cooler just by undoing a few buttons. On cooler days, you can use a button front dress as a jacket or easily layer it with a camisole, tank or turtleneck for extra warmth.

The Eden is a woven rayon dress that you can enjoy in black, army green or cayenne red. Wash gently, tumble for a bit and hang to dry so you don’t have to worry about crinkling.

Blocks of Color

If winter has you fighting the blahs, consider a dress loaded with saturated blocks of colors, such as the Floral Stripe Patio Dress! This lovely blue, white, peach and pink dress will brighten a dismal February day and allow you to move into summer.

This dress is 100% polyester and easy to care for; a simple machine wash, light tumble dry and a quick hang to get all of the water out of the garment and you can put this dress right back into your rotation. You can find these types of dresses at Dressbarn. They’re now open but fully online only so be sure to check out their selections.

Layer Effectively

The autumn colors of tan, cream and rust make transitioning a summer weight dress to a winter garment easy. The Bianka Dress offers easy movement with the trapeze arm construction, so why not add a camisole or tee to hold heat to the body.

This rayon dress will need some attention in the washing process; either hand wash or wash on the gentle cycle. Tumble dry on the lowest setting or just use air to remove some moisture before hanging it with plenty of space to allow it to dry with no crinkles.

Bold Patterns in Black and White

Who says you can’t wear a halter for a holiday part? This pretty and well built Halter Neck Medallion Dress could easily be paired with a lush green shawl or a bright red jacket for a holiday party. Medallions offer structure and a regular pattern that will draw the eye of everyone around you.

Black heeled boots or a low cut suede boot could easily boost your physical warmth in this easy to care for dress. Machine wash, tumble dry and hang to finish drying with no wrinkles and no ironing
