We can all agree that Jane Birkin hit the nail on the head when she declared, “But who wants an easy life? It’s boring!” However, I still want easy-to-wear clothing that is comfortable and stylish and sends me through the whirlwind of adventures that I call life.
I’m not one who craves adrenaline, so I search for another way to live life on the edge and keep life from becoming boring: fashion. Leather, fringe and metallics are my antidotes. I simply adore how this Fashionista is leading a daring life with her angular and easy maxi skirt and layered jewelry.
This Fashionista sports a textured crop top covered in detailed black and white patterns. It slightly cuts in near the neckline, which adds a flattering and unique feature to the top. The shirt perfectly meets her ultimate, black maxi skirt that she bought in a surf shop located in Newport Beach. Although the skirt is a plain color, it is the focal point of the outfit with its dramatic and sharp angle. She shows off some skin and casually knotted the end of the skirt to create an unintentionally cool vibe.
Details are another fix to fashion thrill-seekers. This brilliantly creative Fashionista wears silver beaded bracelets as anklets in order to add depth and extra layers to her Free People strappy sandals. To tie in with the anklets, she also threw on a silver necklace that is subtle, yet bright and eye-catching. On top of that, I love her circle frame sunglasses that throw in a retro aspect to her modern look. Notice how she has a vintage leather backpack effortlessly slung over her shoulders. The light-colored bag is easy to wear during her busy and spontaneous life.
When styling yourself, remember that ease and angles are the key ideas behind this trend. Focus on the maxi skirt, which is all the rage right now; it is comfortable and flattering as well. Look for a skirt that has slits on either one side or both. Depending on your mood, you can tie the ends in a knot like this Fashionista, or leave the skirt flowing down. To finish the look, pair your skirt with fun ankle-strapped sandals and throw on a playful tank top.
It’s fantastic that such a versatile piece is in style. Maxi skirts can lend themselves to casual days and easily drift into exhilarating nights. When wearing an easy-going outfit, you can conquer anything thrown your way and your far-from-boring life.
