The MAXI Skirt.

Best Blogger Tips
Splurge. Save.


This will be a series of posts where I explore the latest fashion trends AND tell you where to get them cheap.


Although I love miniskirts, I see the appeal of the maxi skirt, yet I was not completely sure how to pull it off. But - maxi skirts are all the rage so I had to explore this trend. I think what is most appealing is the fact that they're comfortable and feminine, and can be dressed up or totally casual. Also, I think these are easy to throw on with any (or most!) items in your closet: cropped tops, tank tops, sweaters, t-shirts... you name it! But - one warning - you want to ensure that you don't look like a 'bag lady,' ie. don't pair your maxi with a flouncy top, a pouffy blouse, a sweatshirt or sneakers.


The how-to on wearing this twentysomething trend:


Day.Work.Night.
Day: Cropped tank top, hobo bag and maybe even a chunky necklace... voila!
Work: Simple, neutral colors and no loud patterns. I love the cuff as it really polishes the entire look.
Night: Blazer, belt, heels... all black everything!


Tell me what you think and give me some stylin' tips!


KIU,


Twentysomething
