The maxi trend is one of my absolute favorite looks to rock during any season. While the style first popped up in spring, both long skirts and dresses are just as relevant to your fall wardrobe too. That being said, I'm excited to dish out some ideas on how to master the maxi!
To make the trend a little less intimidating, I suggest treating floor-grazing pieces as an effortless alternative to your go-to jeans and pants. Try pairing a printed maxi skirt with a classic chambray button-down for a borrowed-from-the-boys look or to accomplish a cozier feel, team your maxi with a cropped knit sweater-the cropped silhouette will keep you from being swallowed by your outfit. Avoid, at all costs, anything too baggy.
If you choose to go the route of a long-sleeve maxi dress-my personal fave!-your finishing touch is simple; just throw on a shearling collar leather jacket or faux fur vest as outerwear...voilà, a totally glamorous ensemble!
Shifting our focus to accessories, I have the a few modern add-ons in mind that will work with either a maxi skirt or dress. Reach for a sleek snake-print belt and black lace-up booties to give your outfit an all-around fashion-forward feel. In the baggage area, if you are rocking your maxi look by day, I love a distressed leather satchel for added cool points. On the other hand, if you plan on making a maxi impression in the evening, opt for a compact clutch in a bold shade of orange for an autumn-appropriate pop of color.
Whether you choose to go with a maxi skirt or dress, rest assured that either of these options will maxi-mize your wardrobe for the fall! xoRZ
