Maxi Skirts are one of those classic summer silhouettes that will never die.
Maxi skirts are easy to style, uber feminine, versatile, super comfy, look great on every body type and can help camouflage areas you may want to minimize. Personally, I think every gal should have at least one maxi skirt in her closet.
This summer the maxi skirt trend hot hot hot! Designers swept the runways with long skirt designs in bold vibrant color combinations.
No matter where your style personality lies there really is a maxi skirt out there for everyone from playful jersey prints to luxe silk tropicals, see-through sheers and swinging pleats.
Looking for ways to style them? Try pairing a maxi skirt with a ladylike blouse and fitted blazer or create a laid-back look by teaming a maxi skirt with a simple graphic tee or chambray shirt. If you want to keep things edgy, then try pairing a maxi skirt with a cool biker leather jacket or a vintage band tee and bandanna. You can even get super girly and live out your childhood prima ballerina dreams by pairing a fluffy maxi tulle skirt with a bodysuit.
Maxi skirts are so versatile that you can truly style them with absolutely anything. The key is to keep your shape. Whatever you’re wearing on top, make sure you define your waist, whether it’s with a belt, tucking in, or tying up your shirt.
The most flattering length for a maxi is a cut that is either above or below your ankles. A skirt that is exactly ankle height can cut off your legs and make you look like a tree stump. If you always feel “stumpy” when wearing maxis, try one that has a slit at the leg, which feels less restricting and will elongate your legs. For us vertically challenged ladies a quick trip to the tailor can get you the perfect Maxi skirt length.
Dress them up or dress them down Maxi Skirts are an easy breezy way to take summer to the max!
