Maxi Skirt 3 Ways

September 30, 2014

What could more elegant and romantic than a flowy maxi skirt? It goes without saying that the maxi skirt is one of my favorite new staples for fall. When wearing a maxi skirt, I prefer wearing it high waisted to elongate my petite frame and add shape to my figure. Taking inspirations from the latest fall trends, I wanted to challenge myself and style this beautiful pleated lace skirt from Mavy Savvy three different ways, transforming the outfits from day to night.

cardigan and maxi skirtThis is a simple yet elegant combo perfect for a daytime outing. To accentuate your curves avoid wearing chunky fabrics as it may add unflattering volume around the waist. A light pullover sweater or cardigan is perfect for this look.

crop boxy top and maxi skirtSweet and ladylike, the boxy crop top is not only flattering but forgiving for if/when you decide to over indulge your appetite. Depending on the color or print of the boxy crop you’re wearing, you could take this outfit from day to night easily.

blazer and maxi skirtWhenever I look to add sophistication to an outfit, I always turn to my favorite blazers. For a formal evening look, I’m wearing the skirt with a burgundy studded top and a fitted blazer. Little sparkle never hurt nobody. :)

Hello everyone! You know the saying, if you love something so much keep wearing it! We’re absolutely loving the Bohemian style so the girls of Coast of Coast Style Series (Jess, Johnnalynn and I) have come together to share our favorite bohemian looks featuring Deb Shops.

This simple bohemian maxi dress adorned with crochet prints is so adorable and comfortable. It was really hot the day we shot this outfit on the hills (around 90s with a slight breeze), but I didn’t feel scorched in this dress. Since I haven’t worn my black fedora hat in a long time, I decided to take it out for spin and paired it with this dress. Totally adoring this red, black and gold ensemble.

It’s Friday, yay! What are your weekend plans? I’ve been holding on to this set for a little while now so I’m bursting with excitement sharing with you today! This is Johnnalynn’s, Jess and my second Coast-to-Coast Street Style Series collaboration with Free People, and we’re all about these pretty floral bohemian dresses. This is by far one of my favorite dresses of the series. It’s so unique compared to everything else I own. There is an easy yet sexy vibe about that this dress. And since I’ve been loving the bohemian / gypsy-inspired style lately, this dress is perfect for that type of look.

How To Dress Bohemian Style

1. Wear It Flowy
No matter what you wear, whether it’s a maxi dress, skirt, top, or pants, keep at least one piece of your outfit flowy and a bit undone.

2. Keep It A Little Untamed
Whether it’s the hair, the clothes or the makeup there is always an element of freedom and untameness to this look. Your hair doesn’t have to be perfectly brushed or curled. Your makeup doesn’t have to be to the nines, in fact it’s best if you keep it light and natural. Keep the pumps at home because you won’t need them. Flats, sandals or better yet bare foot are perfect for this look.

3. Adorn Yourself With Accessories
Accessorizing is a huge part of this look. Wear stackable bracelets, long chain necklaces, body chains, midi rings, floppy hats or headbands to complete the boho look. The more the better, there is no such thing as over accessorizing here.
