"Winter" maxi dress - what shoes?

Long, plain, 3/4 sleeve jersey maxi dress.

Chunk belt to disguise the obvious line that is the top of my tights.

What to wear on my feet?

If it were summer I would wear ballet flats and be happy. I guess I still could if it were not raining.

Whichever shoes you think best MyFriend.

You know you're always correct.

Boots would lovely lovely if a bit male lead in Pantomime (obv played by a female) -it's one of my favourite looks.

Just don't slap your thigh a lot.

Darn - just read the word Maxi in the title.


Can you cut the bottom off?

I don't want to cut the bottom off!

Currently wearing boots (flat ones), just wondered if the style gurus had any better thoughts.

What activities do you have planned for this outfit?

Does that help you decide?

How big is your shoe shed cupboard?

I quite like wearing my maxi dresses with chunky biker style boots.

I find though that you need you wear a short jacket though. Which means you have a cold arse, but with gloves, scarf and a hat looks quite stylish.

And hey a cold arse is a small price to pay for looking good!

Agree that a short jacket is needed - a leather biker or a cropped wool jacket would be nice. I've been wearing mine with boots that are sort of a cross between a cowboy and a biker. They are brown though and I really, really want some grey ones.

I wear with either flat knee high boots, or ankle wedge boots. And yes, a short jacket.

Shoeboots? I wd wear with heel otherwise I look a bit of a hippy.

Chunky style biker boots work best IMO. Think that anything with a heel tends to look a bit odd with daytime winter maxis.
