STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Summer Statement Skirt

Style Advice of the Week

Nothing is more satisfying than the start of a summer wardrobe. Sundresses, tube tops and jorts (jean shorts) are welcomed back into rotation to match the sunny days and warm weather that comes with summertime.

What can and should stay in your closet from the past season are the maxi skirts and dresses that are often overlooked during the summer. Contrary to popular belief, long skirts aren’t a mini sauna for your legs. Skirts in light, breathable fabrics and particularly those with a slit or two can prove to be breezy and comfortable in high temperatures. Keeping this in mind, pick a maxi skirt with a colorful pattern like this Fashionista and keep the focus on that when adding a top and accessories.

This Fashionista wears a maxi skirt in a fun print and smartly pairs it with a classic summer tube top in a red hue that complements the skirt’s colors. She proves she is on top of her tube top game by adding a bold gold necklace that shines bright in the sunlight. She wears comfy braided sandals on her feet and takes the color coordination a step further with light blue nail polish to match the skirt’s hues.

The key is to solidify the maxi skirt as not only a summer staple, but as a statement. If you let your outfit play off the skirt, you can easily create a bold yet comfortable summer look.
