FASHIONHow I wore it

Happy Tuesday lovelies. Today we are talking all things ‘maxi’ and why every woman should own at least one piece. I have shared with you guys before that I rarely wear above the knee skirts and dresses mainly because of my legs but also because of comfort reasons. For the most part, I love my dresses and skirts below the knee, and occasionally I rock the maxis.

A maxi skirt is one of the most versatile pieces you will ever own in your wardrobe. It can suit very many occasions, when styled right. And it’s very comfortable to wear because of its length and can flatter any body shape and type.

Below are 5 tips you can employ when wearing a maxi skirt to have you looking stylish and chic:

1. Wear a white, high-neck, long sleeve top with a black maxi in the cold season

We are currently experiencing colder weather and what a perfect time to pull out your black maxi and pair it with a while high neck top. The black and white style never goes out of style and is one of the most effortlessly chic looks around. You can complete the look by adding a blazer and black boots.

2. White Maxi Skirt Outfits

For a feminine and whimsical look, a white maxi skirt makes a wonderful choice. Thanks to its crisp colour, a white maxi appears light and breezy, making it perfect for laidback looks during the warmer months. Once you’ve picked your style, pair it with a white or light top to keep your overall aesthetic bright. When it comes to shoes, you can either add sandals for a beachy vibe or boots for a western touch.

3. Floral Maxi Skirt Outfits

A floral maxi skirt is a timeless garment that always looks chic. The style is especially ideal for achieving a gorgeous bohemian appearance. To create this look, opt for a flowing maxi with a softly coloured floral print. Also, be mindful of how the flowers appear. Small and delicate florals are perfect for a boho look while big and bold blooms are better suited to more modern outfits. Once you have your skirt, partner it with cute and comfortable items, such as a camisole top and flat sandals, and add accessories like beaded necklaces and bracelets.

4. High-Waisted Maxi Skirt Outfits

If you’re looking to make your legs appear longer, a high-waisted maxi skirt makes an excellent option. However, when wearing one, it’s essential to balance your top half with something minimal. To do so, try selecting a crop top or bralette. Alternatively, you could choose a standard style and either wear it tucked into your skirt or tied up in a knot. Also, as high-waisted maxis create a statement, especially those in bold prints or colours, you should select a top in either a matching or neutral hue.

5. Pleated Maxi Skirt Outfits

Thanks to their eye-catching designs, pleated maxi skirts are perfect for turning heads. As such, they make a fantastic choice for special occasions. For a sophisticated and classic appearance, consider choosing a style in a thick material with wide pleats. For a more modern look, opt for a plisse design in a fluid fabric. Either way, be sure to partner your skirt with heels to keep your look from appearing too bottom-heavy.

And there you have it guys. 5 tips to take your maxi style from drab to fab!
