However, this doesn’t mean you always have to wear the big, oversize and chunky ones. Creating layers on your clothes provide you with the warmth that you need to get through a cold day without sacrificing style. You can wear a shirt, topped with a sweater then topped with a jacket, coat or vest with your maxi dress or skirt. The layers will add a beautiful look to the simple silhouette of a maxi.
