Style Advice of the Week

It’s that wonderful time of year again! That time when you can finally start breaking out your dresses and skirts without having to worry about frostbite. Although it has been warming up, there are still some pretty chilly days here in Montana. Don’t want to put your skirts back into storage quite yet? You don’t have to! This week’s Fashionista shows how you can still rock a skirt, even during the unpredictable spring weather.

A maxi skirt is a great transitional piece because it is very on trend and actually keeps your legs warm. This Fashionista wears a black and white, tribal patterned maxi along with a plain white crop top. Since the maxi skirt is the main element of the outfit, she keeps it simple with a denim jacket—another great piece to add some warmth. This Fashionista finishes her look off with aviator sunglasses, black flip-flops and coral earrings to add a pop of color. She does a brilliant job at channeling summer while at the same time, not catching cold.

Next time the weather is not cooperating with your outfit plans, don’t settle for jeans and a sweatshirt, try out a maxi skirt! This will give you the girly fun you look for in a skirt, minus the goosebumps. And if the sun comes out unexpectedly in the middle of the day, never fear! You wont overheat in a maxi since the fabric is usually very breathable, which makes them perfect for weather that won’t make up it’s mind.

The maxi skirt is a very underrated piece of clothing; I think that a good maxi should be a staple piece in everybody’s wardrobe. They are extremely versatile, comfortable and look cute on any body type. So what are you waiting for? Try one out and you too can be mad about maxis.
