Maxi Skirt – ‘Boho’ chic no more.
Maxi skirts are worn all year round but they’re most popular during the summer months alongside its counterpart the maxi dress. However, in today’s post let’s focus on the skirt. Whenever the maxi skirt is mentioned it’s always followed by the trend ‘boho’. Now there’s nothing wrong with putting the bohemian look in the same style category as the maxi skirt, but that’s not the only look the maxi skirt can be styled with. Unless you’re heavily into the 70’s, hippie, flower power, fringed waistcoats, suede jackets and cowboy boots look, you should really keep the word ‘boho’ out of your style vocabulary when styling a maxi skirt.
Maxi skirts have forever been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. In actual fact, I bought this stripy number especially to wear as a dress and then later on decided to wear it the right way. As a dress, this look works particularly well too with a belt in the middle or with a lovely suit jacket on top.
When styling this stripey maxi skirt, my focus was to make it elegant and stylish. I have always loved playing with ‘shape’ so if it’s a maxi skirt, then it has to be super maxi for my small frame. So I’m normally a size 6 but I bought this skirt in a size 16. I wanted the volume of the skirt to be exaggerated. This was teamed with a white ballooned sleeved shirt, Chloe shoes and Chanel bag. In order to keep you in proportion, make sure the top is shaped to accentuate the waist and it’s worn with heels.
Update your maxi skirt leave the boho chic in the 90s and embrace a new modern look. Maybe try the skirt as a dress or update with a fitted shirt. Let me know how you got on.
Thank you for stopping by, don’t go without saying hello.
