One of my favorite things about fashion is that most trends and styles go full circle; one style in the past eventually makes its way back into the wardrobes of many people. Almost every style’s life is renewed down the road.
As Fashionistas, we have seen this happen with colored denim, oversized hats, high-waisted skirts and shorts, pointy stilletos and now, the maxi skirt. What’s advantageous about the maxi skirt is its versatility and its flexibility to be worn. It is a look destined for all ages and for all heights, not to mention all styles.
This Fashionista chose to complement the summery style of her ivory maxi skirt with crochet detail with comfortable, yet feminine pieces such as her denim strapless H&M top, gold and pearl jewelry and her leather Steve Madden gladiator sandals that pair nicely with her leather clutch. The light color of her maxi skirt and the crochet detail make it a great summer piece. However, pair the skirt with a loose-fitting sweater and a pair of booties to easily take this maxi skirt from summer to fall.
Any Fashionista can make the maxi skirt suitable to her personal style. Not only does the skirt’s flowy nature make it super comfortable, but the various designs of maxi skirts make them highly attainable. I personally love maxi skirts with a bit of character to them such as crochet, lace, pleats or a print.
How To: There’s not much a maxi skirt cannot do, so max out with this fun trend by making the maxi skirt a staple in your wardrobe. If your style has a bit of a more bohemian edge to it, try a light maxi skirt with lace similar to this Fashionista’s. A dressier option is a black crochet one that looks great with a pair of T-strap heels for a night out. Another dressier option is one with a polka dot overlay that has retro vibes to it. Or style your own look by wearing a maxi in a solid color such as a vibrant orange that is perfect for summer or a slate gray. Take it to the max by wearing a maxi skirt year-round with a crop top or a light shirt in the summer and a blazer, leather jacket or an oversized sweater in the winter!
