So on a personal note, I was approached by Beso.com, an emerging fashion and lifestyle website! I was quite pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to come across several cute maxi skirts, all conveniently placed on one website. I was able to find my favorite maxi skirt within just 5 minutes! =O. This website is definitely worth checking out for your next shopping endeavor!
HOW TO WEAR A MAXI SKIRT:
1. Simplicity is key: Because maxi skirts denote simplicity and comfort, stick to this look by pairing the maxi skirt with a simple and comfortable top. This creates a casual and effortless look while unifying a balance of style. Wearing a solid colored top in a different color than the maxi skirt works great, because it also creates a color-block interest.
2. Cotton it up: This is the skirt you want to wear a cotton tee with. It all goes back to casual comfort. What’s more comfortable than a plain cotton tee? …….. exactly, nothing! The majority of maxi skirts are made of jersey cotton, pima/modal or rayon. Support this fabrication choice by wearing a top in a similar fabric. It’ll further help identify the casual look of a maxi skirt.
3. Tuck it in: Tuck in your shirt to help identify your waist line. Sometimes a waistline can get easily lost in translation when wearing a long skirt. Avoid this missing hipline by tucking in your shirt. Feel free to accentuate your waistline by using a belt (like me). In addition, because a maxi skirt is also very long in length, tucking in your shirt also helps break up components, identifying where the maxi skirt begins.
