Out With the Mini, In With the Maxi

My initial reaction to a maxi skirt and maxi dresses when they first hit the fashion scene was "why?" But now, since the trend has caught on and stayed with fashion for several seasons, I'm able to see the style significance. Not only do they extend, well visually, the length of your legs, but they're so comfortable to wear. Worn long, flowy and light, this piece of apparel is impossible not to love these days. To add to the comfort factor and the flowy elements of this clothing, maxi skirts look fabulous in a variety of colors: coral, blue, patterned, neutral and color blocked hues all accent maxi skirts wonderfully. With the help of length and color, this garment will make anyone look fabulous and it's absolutely a staple for this season.
Now with all this maxi skirt talk, I want to wear mine! Oh, another piece of advice, BCBGMAXAZRIA has fabulous maxis with the best pleats and an unbelievable amount of "flow". I'm in love with them and they're always on sale at department stores, so you can get one for a steal. Just an idea for all of the style-curious readers. I can't wait until the heat cranks up and I'm able to keep cool in a long maxi with my lovely new wedges. Just remember, keep it simple! These skirts provide a simple look, so don't get too complex. Don't make the look harder than it has to be. Take advantage of this comfortable, convenient trend while it's here.
I hereby proclaim May Day as maxi skirt awareness day.

  1. Oh my goodness they are all beautiful, totally wanting a maxi skirt now. Adore the neutrals and pink ones, and that Tibi print is just amazing!

  2. I'm never giving up my miniskirts (my legs are my best feature after all) but I'm also FINALLY on board with the maxi. It took me a long time too! But there are great moments for it especially in spring and fall. Sometimes I get TOO hot in them in the middle of the summer though. I love all of the Zara options you've shown as well as the ALC option!


    PS: Please please PLEASE come by my event at Reiss on Sunday! Its from 12-3, we're having gift bags, cupcakes, tea and mini makeover compliments of The Loft Salon and Define Beauty! It is going to be SO much fun and it would be great to finally meet in person! xoxo
