STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Maximizing Your Maxi

When it is July at the Jersey Shore and the heat of the summer sun is in full force, wearing anything other than your bathing suit seems insane. However, when it is time to leave the beach, pool or bay, it is essential to cover up in style. When we think of a cover-up, we might only consider throwing on an easy dress, but we may in fact be overlooking the power of the maxi skirt. Now, coming off of a hot beach with no more ocean breeze and putting on a floor length skirt may seem counterintuitive, however a great flowy maxi skirt can be just as cool; it also provides much more protection from the sun than your typical short cover-up. A maxi skirt is a great way to step up your post-beach or pool style so you are sure to arrive at your next destination looking amazing.

This Fashionista is fully embracing the maxi skirt cover-up style.
