Whether it’s hazy gray skies or “too hot to handle” heat, it’s hard to know exactly how to dress for constantly varying weather. But this Fashionista found a way to remain optimistic and overcome the elements by sporting a royal blue maxi skirt just bright enough to keep her spirits up high.
Between the bold color and graceful pleats, this skirt immediately attracted my attention as maxi skirts are among the most versatile fashion pieces in any closet. Rain or shine, dressed up or dressed down, maxi skirts are known for their utility and comfort and ability to make a statement out of any outfit. Try wearing one with anything from a fabulous leather jacket to a simple graphic tee, and you will not be disappointed.
Paired with a charmingly on-trend cat shirt and classic black bowler hat, this Fashionista’s look is part wit, part grace and makes for a winning combination. Bowler hats have entered into the spotlight recently, as seen at this season’s runway shows from designers such as Ann Demeulemeester. Dsquared2 also showed an interpretation on the classic hat by featuring brightly colored, oversized bowler hats with timeless, androgynous womenswear looks. Bowler hats have also been seen on many celebrities and influential fashion icons lately, such as Yasmin Sewell. A bowler hat is a staple item that will remain in your wardrobe for years on end, and so I believe it to be a worthwhile investment. ASOS, Urban Outfitters and Topshop all sell a variety of them.
By incorporating bold colors and classic pieces that work year-round into your outfit, you can find ways to overcome the weather and express your true style.
