Closet Strategy: Maxi Skirt

I remember when maxi hem length started to come back in style I wasn't sure if it was going to last this time or not. I usually don't jump onto a trend until it's around for a while. Well, I think its safe to say that maxis are here to stay - at least for a while longer! While I love maxi dresses, it's a bit harder for me to pull off without shortening the hem or wearing crazy high-heeled shoes (I'm only 5'3). That's why I invest in maxi skirts instead! You can wear it up higher and no one would notice!

Here are a few ways I wear my maxi skirts:

Outfit 1: Simplicity

A plain white tee and a black maxi skirt is quite basic but this look is all about the accessories! I actually saw a similar outfit on Mary Kate Olsen before and I thought, "wow, how chic!" So like her, I paired my black maxi skirt with a v-neck tee (though not as low dipping), and silver toned accessories. I added a structured bag and nude pumps to keep the focus on the skirt. I would wear this outfit on a casual weekend outlet-shopping trip. 

Top: Forever 21 tee
Accessories: Gifted necklace, H&M belt, Vintage Chanel tote
Shoes: Madden Girl Getta pumps

Outfit 2: Flower Power

This top is actually a dress, believe it or not. I got it in Spain but I wanted to use the floral print in the dress to add sweetness to the maxi skirt. Also, it was unbelievably hot outside this particular day I took this picture (103 degrees fahrenheit!) I then added some warm-toned accessories like this gorgeous brown belt and gold sandals to give the outfit some casual glam. I think this is the perfect outfit for an outdoor concert. 

Top: Pull and Bear flower dress from Spain (worn as a top)
Accessories: Stradivarius belt, Dooney and Bourke bag
Shoes: Payless platform sandals

Outfit 3: Casual Cool

This outfit is slightly more formal than the others - a maxi skirt paired with a blouse! I love how a loose-fitting blouse looks with a long skirt . Like the first outfit, the color palette is simple so it's once again up to the accessories to save the day! I wore this statement necklace underneath the blouse to give the outfit a peakaboo effect of color. Add a matching belt and clutch and you're ready for a date night! 

Top: F21 blouse
Accessories: F21 necklace, Juicy Couture clutch, Icing sunnies, F21 belt
Shoes: Glaze by Adi sandals
