FASHION FROM ABROAD: Magnifico Maxi Skirts

Fashion From Abroad

Ciao tutti! Experiencing the beautiful fashion trends of Italy has been giving me constant inspiration to spice up my style. Everywhere I go, I find myself more interested in mastering the style of Italians. One of the main differences I have noticed between American and European fashion is what people wear on a day-to-day basis. For example, Americans dress based on the weather whereas Europeans dress based on the season. So it’s not uncommon for Italians to wear layers in 70-degree weather while Americans wear shorts and T-shirts.

I stumbled across this Fashionista after class and was mesmerized by her flowing maxi skirt. Maxi skirts seem to be the go-to piece for spring and summer, regardless of whether you’re in Europe or the United States. What’s not to obsess over? Maxi skirts are comfortable, versatile and always an option for the cooler days of spring or the warmest days of summer.

What I love about this Fashionista’s outfit is how she incorporated different pieces to create a causal and comfortable look. Her top, sandals and layered jewelry give equal parts laid back and trendy. She also coordinates her summer-inspired elements to correspond with the weather like a true European.

Want to achieve this look? Simply layer a basic colored T-shirt with your favorite maxi skirt. Look for a denim jacket that will complement the color palette of your outfit. Add sandals or flats to dress the look down. An alternative option to dress up your maxi skirt is to wear an M-cut maxi skirt and heels or wedges to show off your legs. Whether you decide to dress your maxi skirt up or down, make sure to add a pendant necklace or your favorite assortment of rings to complete the look!
