Wearing the Maxi Skirt All Year Round


0bd30a2eb82cd4a9b18db8bb2677fa8bI see few women wearing the maxi skirt, a fear of standing out too much if they wear this long, flowing, statement piece. For many it looks too formal, or the opposite, bohemian.

The maxi skirt is one of those trends that comes and goes but for me it has always been in. The maxi skirt suits many body shapes purely because it’s not just a single cut. Maxis can be flared, straight, narrow, pleated, high-waisted, asymmetrical – not limited to any tall, thin women. If you wear it well, it can look sensational.

I say, get out of your jeans and into a maxi for some fun, femininity, sexiness and originality.

Publication5Pattern and lace skirts are fun and feminine. Don’t be afraid to mix various patterns together, as you can see above with the edgy combination of paisley skirt and stripe blouse. Experiment to see what suits you. The lace skirt is soft and stylish worn with a silk wrap top. To give a casual feel, a denim jacket fits the part. Again add a jolt of colour in there with the accessories.

Again as you will see above on the right, the multi patterned mix of the skirt, vest and shoes can all work well together if you get the ‘pattern mix’ right. Don’t be afraid.

Publication 7The neutral effect. It’s not always about bright colour. I love wearing a long white or beige skirt with a soft blouse in the summer. In the winter wear it with a wrap cardigan or belted coat. Can’t go wrong here.
