How to Transition Your Summer Maxi to Fall -Day and Night

Hello beautiful people! Today i'm going to show you all how I transition my summer maxi dress to a nice fall look for day and night time! A little backstory, I bought this dress to wear to a wedding earlier this summer. Since that day, i've been wanting to wear it again but I never had a chance to until now. Maxi dresses are my favorite summer to fall transitional piece because they're comfy yet chic and fashionable. Don't pack your summery dresses away just yet because I got some tips on how to make that dress appropriate for fall! Please let me know what you think in the comments below xoxo. 


  1. Add sleeves! It's a must to add at least one layer to make your transitional outfit. 
  2. Add accessories such as a hat,scarf, or both.
  3. Go for a closed toe shoe. If you wear an open toe heel with a maxi dress during fall you might look cold regardless of number 1 & 2. 
  4. Add or bring out the darker and warmer colors in the dress. My dress was fairly easy to work with because its color blocking black, cognac, and rose pink. 

Take a look at the model for the summer look in my exact dress.
