I'm really getting into maxi lengths even if they are kind of really hard to accessorize in the winter (I don't have a floor length coat, and it always looks weird to wear a long dress with a knee-length thing over it?). These dresses from Topshop Unique's spring line would be a great way to cheer up in crazy gray winter days or to ring in the new year (you must always dress festive to welcome the new year!).
Or maybe you're not feeling the length from top to bottom but you're feeling it from the bottom up. Then you need cone-heeled sneakers embedded on a wooden wedge. Totally ridiculous, and obviously must-haves. I think I like the pink ones the best.
