Here are 4 new ways to style your summer maxi:
How To Wear A Maxi Skirt In Summer
Fake the look of layers with separates of different proportions. Wear a jersey maxi skirt with a free-flowing, chiffon top. For a less-stuffy look, reach for a sleeveless blouse that shows a little skin. For extra style points, pair the look with gladiator sandals that peek out under the skirt as you walk.
Stylist Tip: Choose contrasting colors to make each piece pop—think blue and yellow, olive and blush or coral and cobalt.
How To Wear A Maxi Dress To The Beach
Go from the beach to boardwalk in your favorite woven maxi. The difference between woven and a jersey or knit? It’s all how the fabric is structured! The basket-like weave of a woven fabric will allow for more breathability for the warmer months. Ditch the difficult-to-buckle sandals for flip-flops so you can easily take them off once you hit the sand.
Stylist Tip: Straw hats are durable and practical—throw one in your tote for on-the-go shade. And, no worries if they get a little wet, they’ll dry in a jiffy.
How To Wear A Maxi Dress For Date Night
Head to a haute date night by throwing something unexpected (hey there, leather bomber!) over your shoulders. Play with adding in a more casual piece, like a jersey maxi for a look that seamlessly mixes urban edge with effortless ease. Not a moto-jacket kind of girl? Keep your look more casual and top off your dress with a classic jean jacket instead.
Stylist tip: If you’re petite, look for a maxi dress that has an elastic or skirt with a tie-waist waistband. This will allow you to fold-over or cinch your dress to match the length of your legs.
How To Wear A Maxi Skirt To Work
If you’re lucky enough to have a relaxed dress code at work, don a maxi skirt with a timeless top—like a button-up or structured blouse. Opt for neutrals (black & white FTW) as brights may come off more casual.
Stylist Tip: Keep a clutch in your work bag so you can seamlessly transition into happy hour.
