Style Advice of the Week

In general, the colder months mean ditching your skirts and dresses in favor of leggings or pants. The need for warmth replaces the desire to be fashionable and, let’s face it, tights can be a hassle. The solution? Maxi skirts! Not only are they trendy, but they also are the ultimate layering staple. You could be wearing four pairs of leggings underneath and no one would ever know.

This Fashionista chose a tie-dye printed maxi from Brandy Melville and paired it with a simple white top with crochet detailing on the shoulders to keep the emphasis on the skirt. Incorporating bold patterns like tie dye into your winter wardrobe can be a refreshing change from the dark, somber colors of the wintertime. Try a floral pattern, like this cute Brandy Melville maxi skirt or stick to a more basic style like this Urban Outfitters one to play up the top part of an outfit.

The top half of the outfit is kept simple to keep the focus on the skirt. A simple and chic statement necklace pulls the look together without making it too busy. For all you Fashionistas who live in colder regions, try swapping the crochet top for a baggy sweater. It’s perfect for an everyday, casual look and works well with the hippy-chic trend! I like this basic one from Urban Outfitters.

This winter, be sure to get the most out of your wardrobe by finding new ways to incorporate your summer staples; personally, I think layering is the easiest way to achieve this. How do you transition your clothes from season to season?
