Maxi-mize Your Style

All over fall runways, maxi skirts were making an appearance. Above we see a lovely printed maxi skirt at Tibi, a luxe white skirt at Reed Krakoff, a long thick sweater over a preppy, yet ethereal camel skirt at Richard Chai, and an all gray ensemble at Michael Kors. While these are definitely runway looks, there is a way to integrate maxi skirts into your day to day look. They add unexpected glamor to basic pieces. So here is the first installment of three ways to wear maxi skirts!

Pair a maxi skirt with simple separates to keep it chic - not over the top. A white tee shirt tucked in with a chain link belt, a buttery leather jacket, a black and silver bib necklace and black booties give this look polish while maintaining some edginess.
