If there was one style of dress that ruled the summer, it was the maxi — everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Reese Witherspoon wore the comfy and flattering trend.

And it doesn’t look like the silhouette is being left behind anytime soon, because Emily Ratajkowski just showed us how to winterize the style. While out in New York City, the model wore sleek black boots, a chain crossbody bag, and a gray maxi tank dress in a knitted fabric that’s perfect for cooler seasons.
