STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Max Out Your Style

This Fashionista knows how to rock a maxi skirt. The maroon maxi skirt that she is currently wearing is perfect for almost any event or season! In my opinion, maroon is one of the most versatile colors. It is often said, that everyone should have a little black dress because black looks flattering on everyone, but so is maroon.

Scientists claim that red is a color that often attracts others towards you, so it makes sense that a shade of red like maroon would do the same thing. One amazing thing about maroon is that it isn’t as bright as red, which is perfect for those who don’t feel that they are brave enough to wear something bright! Wearing maroon allows you to effortlessly stand out from the crowd. Maroon is also a color that matches almost everyone’s skin tone. Whether you have darker or lighter skin, maroon will certainly look stunning on you, making a maroon colored item a staple in your closet. As you start to become even more gorgeously tanned in the summer, a maroon item will complement your new glow. The same thing can be said for a maxi skirt. Not only are maxi skirts wearable in the summer, you can continue to wear them in fall as well as in spring. I would however suggest that you skip winter, especially if you live in a cold climate, like I do in Canada!

This Fashionista definitely picked the perfect maxi skirt to help max out her style! The soft and light material of the maxi skirt allows for the skirt to be extremely comfortable. Since the material is light, it won’t be too hot for the summer (since the skirt is long, some may be worried that it is too warm). This skirt is also perfect for transitioning from the summer to fall because at least in Canada, this is when our leaves change colors which perfectly match with the maroon skirt. Also, the longer skirt (although not particularly warming) will provide a little bit of protection from any breezes from the fall on your legs. This Fashionista nails this outfit by matching her skirt with a simple white crop top so that the maroon skirt stands out. She is wearing a pair of cute leather sandal heels to add texture to her outfit, and heart shaped sunglasses. Don’t forget that when you are choosing a pair of sunglasses to find one with 100 percent UVA/UVB protection, just like this adorable pair of heart shaped sunglasses from Urban Outfitters!

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Pair your maxi skirt with a crop top! The shorter top balances out the longer top. You don’t want a top to tuck into a maxi skirt so that your outfit looks more relaxed.”
