Posted by August 11, 2016 - Austria, Fashion, Germany, How to walk in these trends, Trends

Maxi dresses are a summer thing, we all know that, they are a perfect, very romantic choice for a summer night at the beach, having dinner, drinks or a simple ice-cream by the ocean… But here is the good news: they are a perfect choice also for fall. Yes! Maxi dresses can be combined in so many different ways that they can be used during the early weeks of fall (if you are in central Europe and during the whole fall season if you are in southern Europe, good for you!). Maxi dresses are a feminine fashion choice, that can be combined into different styles and outfits, from casual to professional – many options are possible. 

Since we are already heading towards mid August and here in Austria, the nights are very slowly getting chilly and windy, we thought it would be a great idea to create a Maxi Dress Guide and give you some tips on how to combine them and put together a perfect look.

Here are some street style inspirations that will make you realise you will want the fall to arrive as soon as possible.

Denim Jacket

A maxi dress as we said before can be styled for different occasions. A jean jacket of course is a casual occasion and we believe it brings a very young feel to the whole look.

Our personal tip: We suggest styling it with a rather shorter jacket than a long one, this will make your figure look longer and taller. 

Leather Jacket

This option is a great choice for some drinks at a cool rooftop bar were you can rock the leather jacket to perfection. Check here your perfect Rooftop look!

Our personal tip: Combine it with a cool black hat and a fringe style bag, you will totally fall in love with the whole combination. 

Dress Over Trousers

Crazy huh? Yes, but it also looks crazy good! We see this as a very professional option and we can totally imagine it as a good office summer/fall outfit.

Our personal tip: We would combine it with some blue toned jeggings and as a final touch, we would add a simple professional clutch to the whole look.


There goes another professional look, great for a relaxed Friday at the office followed by a chilled After Office Meeting. A blazer has the power of automatically upgrading your whole outfit to the next level, no matter what your dress option is.

Our personal tip: We would totally style this look with some new Loafers. These type of shoes is an excellent office style choice and they are now ON TREND. Perfect match! 


Winter boots + Maxi dress = Best Fall outfit option. Wait, what? Yes, that is right. Choose one of your last winter ankle boots and style it with your chosen Maxi Dress. You will not regret this one.

Our personal tip: We think that to get this outfit right it is very important to choose the right dress length. Your dress length should be a bit over the ankle in order to achieve perfection.


We just feel something really special for our beloved sneakers. We think sneakers match pretty much everything and here is the proof of how well they can match a long dress for these next weeks.

Our personal tip: We would suggest you to keep it classic, the simpler the better! Just in case you are lacking ideas here is a list of suitable choices: Adidas Gazelles, All Star Converse or Classic Superga.
