No matter how hard I try, I have yet to find a sheer maxi skirt to add to my closet. Since I take pride in my aptitude for styling outfits, I am quite frustrated by my inability to incorporate this staple summer item. I just want to embody the effortless styles of Vanessa Hudgens, Nicole Richie and any Coachella attendee. Luckily, I found a Fashionista who has mastered this article of clothing.

There are two elements of our Fashionista’s skirt that make it work: the color and the fabric. Although some may not consider black a summer color, I believe it transcends seasons. You could argue that I am biased, since half of my wardrobe consists of black clothing. However, that’s because black is versatile, classic and cool. Even if you don’t find black appropriate for summer, you will love the floral, lace fabric that allows light to pass through this Fashionista’s skirt. Also, the high slit is perfect for showing off your summer tan.

Since the skirt is intricate and eye-catching, it is important to keep the other parts of the ensemble simple. Our Fashionista does exactly that by pairing the maxi skirt with a cropped grey sweater. By accessorizing with a delicate necklace and dainty gold watch, the skirt is the center of attention.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “Pairing a crop top with a high-waisted skirt is pretty standard. I like to keep things a little more unique by highlighting a piece that stands out, like this lace skirt.”
