When I think about maxi-dresses, they are usually the sleeveless kind, meant to be worn during the lazy days of summer. But if you love the feeling of flowy fabric around your body, there's no need to stop wearing them just because the weather is cooling off. Instead of foregoing the look completely, take a cue from Miranda Kerr, who opts for a gauzy long-sleeved printed one, ideal for this time of year. Expertly styled with a pair of aviators and flat sandals, the outfit is an effortless way to roll out of bed on the weekends and get dressed in an instant. While this Veronica Beard style most closely resembles Kerr's, the $1,595 price tag can be a bit hard to swallow. For a similar feel, anything with a deep V-neck and a dark palette will work equally well, like this feather-print Rachel Pally version in shades of navy and purple. Throw on a pair of shiny gold sunglasses to add urban polish and keep the overall vibe from skewing too bohemian. Finish with sandals or try ankle boots when it gets too cold for bare feet.
