How To: Wear Maxi Skirts & Dresses


Fall officially begins this Sunday and it has definitely been making a presence. Sunny days have begun to turnover into chilly nights. For someone who does not wince at cold weather, I rejoice in knowing layering, bold colors, and prints lie ahead in my fall fashion forecast. 

One of the more popular trends for fall is the maxi skirts and dresses. While the styling options are endless some might be intimidated by them. Don't be! We are here to help...

1) Wildfox Couture Romeo & Juliet Black Bird Skirt (pictured above) from the Fall 2011 collection is a flowy cotton skirt with gold detailed crosses. While the skirt is white, it is a bit edgier. Pair with a crop top in a solid color and a fur vest for an Almost Famous look or tuck in a striped tank top for a more subtle look. 

2) Mink Pink Nothing to Hide Maxi Skirt is one of my favorites. Giving you the versatility to show as much or as little leg as possible, this sheer trendy high-waisted skirt is a must for your closet. Bandage skirt or shorts would go best underneath. Black being the easiest color to style around you cannot go wrong pairing this skirt with anything.

3) Lovers + Friends Gypsy Halter Maxi Dress in Snakeskin is a gorgeous flowing maxi dress with a halter tie closure and a draping v neckline. Dress it up with thin bangles and strappy heels for a night out or throw over a jean jacket, layer on necklaces and some chunky bracelets to play a more casual look.

Remember: layering is key. Scarves, jackets, bangles, vests... just make sure the jackets/vests are fitted to your body. Have fun!

  1. Do you think wearing leggings w/ the Nothing To Hide Maxi Skirt would work? Want to wear this look but afraid a short skirt might be too chilly...

  2. Leila- yes, I definitely think black leggings would go well! I personally would pair the leggings & skirt with flat OR heel brown boots. Great look for this fall :)
