STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Maxed Out From Head to Toe

May 5th, 2015 at 2:10am

The past few warmer seasons have brought many different style inspirations. Some have stuck around, and some have quickly faded away like mere summertime memories. One trend that has pervaded the hottest styles from season to season has been the maxi dress and skirt. These flowing clothing items are complimentary on all who chose to don them. They are great for a trip to the city, a dinner out with friends or a night spent at the beach. These versatile items can be styled multiple ways, as well. Depending on you style you can dress your look up or go casual depending on how you accessorize your maxi dress or skirt.

I saw this Fordham Fashionista sporting the classic maxi dress look on one beautiful spring day on campus. I love her black maxi dress. The simplicity of her dress makes it so easy to style it in a multitude of different ways. She pairs her elegant maxi dress with a timeless jean jacket. I personally believe jean jackets are an item every Fashionsta should house in her closet. They are a great go-to outwear item to choose during the spring. She dresses her look up by adding a unique necklace. Lastly, she complements the neutral tones of her outfit by working some adorable strappy sandals.

The maxi trend is a wardrobe staple. Like I said, the look can be styled many different ways and reflect a variety of different styles. Here is a patterned maxi dress, an asymmetrical maxi skirt and a classic black maxi dress.
