The arrival of winter season usually means we put away our summer wardrobe pieces, like maxi dresses and skirts. Instead of doing that you can take them out from your closet, and learn how to maximize their potential by mixing them with a few other wardrobe pieces. Maxi skirts are really nice for making bohemian-boho looks.
Here are some simple rules you should follow:
- Wear appropriate footwear: Use your footwear as the key to taking the look with maxi skirt from day to night. With a flat, biker boots, this look becomes casual for daytime; with a heeled boot you can walk the line from day to night; and with a sexier ankle-strap you give the look a evening glam feel.
- Combine with appropriate top of the outfit: The maxi skirt feels floaty so you should anchor it with weightier, warmer pieces up top. Try a leather jacket, blazer or a cashmere pullover to offset the bottom half. With this touch you will create layered look, for more inspiration see our Style Guide: How to layer clothes?
