Yes, I know I fawned over maxi dresses just a couple of weeks ago. But as long as the temperature is still above freezing, this is the perfect time to get one last use out of your ankle-grazing frocks.

Layering is essential for rocking the fall maxi. Giant, cozy knit sweaters or a sleek leather jacket can keep your shoulders warm. Wear tights under the skirt. Top it off with a hat, and don’t forget to slip on your favorite booties.

Let these photos give you inspiration, then get creative with the flannels, fur and jackets in your own closet. For more fall-inspired maxi ensembles, read To The Max(i).
