Maxi Skirts


Are you thinking spring? This warmer weather sure has me ready for some of the new trends this season. One of the hottest new things I am in love with is maxi skirts! Maxis are super cute and trendy but my only issue with them is what in the world do you wear on the top? What kind of shirt do you ware with this skirt? Do you mix prints, tuck it in, or find something that flows (kind of like an oversized top)? The answer is all of them. You really can’t go wrong with this style! Here are a few tips to keep in mind when trying out this trendy item.

Oversized Tops- Sheer tops work really well with maxi skirts. A sheer top will also look super trendy if you tuck it in; or better yet use the half tuck trend! You could also do an oversized sweater, I just wouldn’t choose a long oversized sweater or you will take away from the effect and flow of the skirt.

Plain Tops- If you are just getting into this trend and you aren’t sure what to match it with this is something super simple and won’t make your style too loud or over the top. Plain tank tops or tee shirts work really well if you are going for a highly printed maxi. When wearing this on a cooler day don’t be afraid to wear your maxi skirt with a plain top and a leather coat or denim jacket, which is great this spring since the weather doesn’t know what it wants to do.

Mix Prints- If you are looking to make a statement with your wardrobe this is for you. Mixing prints are fun and a great way to put a statement on your outfit. You can mix lace, zig zag, tribal, and floral! One of my favorite mix prints is lace and tribal (which is really popular this year).

Have fun with this new trend! Spice up your wardrobe with something comfortable and breezy to wear this spring and summer! Don’t be afraid to accessorize either. Infinity scarves, long chunky necklaces, and gladiator sandals are always great to pair with you favorite maxi skirt! For this trend and many others this season stop into your local Cherry Pickers!
