Style Advice of the Week

My advice for you this week is to find a casual cotton maxi skirt and incorporate it into your daily wardrobe.

Maxi skirts are great because they are breezy and allow you to move comfortably. The fabrics are usually really soft so they feel almost like you are wearing a blanket all day, and quite frankly who would not want to feel that comfy all day or night?

This Fashionista wore her maxi skirt on the perfect day because despite the bright and hot sun, the wind was blowing at a high speed. You can find a maxi skirt that is adorable, fun and patterned like this Fashionista chose at Rip Curl, or you can find a plain gray skirt from Alternative Apparel. They are equally as easy to find tops to pair them with, so go for whichever fits your personality better. However, a gray skirt in particular goes well with every color, as you can see by this Fashionista pairing it with nude shoes and a mahogany leather jacket.

As for tops, your best bet with a maxi skirt is to wear a crop top. This Fashionista chose to show some skin, but you can opt for a crop top that reveals a little less. This Fashionista’s simple black crop top matched very well with her gray skirt, but you really cannot go wrong with whatever color you choose to wear on top. However, if you wear a bright colored maxi skirt, I would go for a simple white top. Guess has a simplistic, yet trendy crop top that comes in black or white, and it will go with everything. You do not want to overdo it with too many contrasting colors.

The maxi skirt is a prime option for daytime events or even evening dinners and barbecues this spring and summer because you will never overheat and they are so versatile. You can wear them with wedges and heels, sandals or even sneakers. They are great for a dressier occasion or a very casual one. Good luck wearing your maxi skirts!
