The maxi skirt is one of those trends that comes and goes but for me it has always been in. The maxi skirt suits many body shapes purely because it’s not just a single cut. Maxis can be flared, straight, narrow, pleated, high-waisted, asymmetrical – not limited to any tall, thin women. If you wear it well, it can look sensational.
I say, get out of your jeans and into a maxi for some fun, femininity, sexiness and originality.
Below are my suggestions for wearing the maxi skirt all year round. This feminine skirt can be worn during the day or evening, casual or formal, summer or winter. At work may be a little tricky, but it depends on the type of work.
Pattern and lace skirts are fun and feminine. Don’t be afraid to mix various patterns together, as you can see above with the edgy combination of paisley skirt and stripe blouse. Experiment to see what suits you. The lace skirt is soft and stylish worn with a silk wrap top. To give a casual feel, a denim jacket fits the part. Again add a jolt of colour in there with the accessories.
Continuing on the subject of lace and pattern skirts. Worn with fur(or faux fur) vests, this is super stylish. Combined with sexy boots, vintage handbags and earrings…..yum. Again as you will see above on the right, the multi patterned mix of the skirt, vest and shoes can all work well together if you get the ‘pattern mix’ right. Don’t be afraid.
The neutral effect. It’s not always about bright colour. I love wearing a long white or beige skirt with a soft blouse in the summer. In the winter wear it with a wrap cardigan or belted coat. Can’t go wrong here.
All garments in my styling pages were sourced from Polyvore, Net-a-Porter, Farfetch, Etsy, Asos and Pinterest. Browse these websites to find your perfect maxi, blouse, jacket, shoes and accessories.
Like all of my fashion posts, I could have gone on for ever with various ways to wear garments, in this instance the maxi skirt. I find it hard to stop. The maxi skirt is certainly a piece that is versatile enough to have many different looks. I do highly recommend experimenting to see what works on you. And more importantly be a little darling. My belief is, you only have to do it ‘once’ to break the fear factor.
