We're going to great lengths in this week’s Two Ways to Wear it column, as team Sydne Style shows us how to wear maxi skirts. The trend works whether you are petite like Sydne (left) or tall like Haley. Check out sydnestyle.com for more fashion inspo!
The maxi skirt is the perfect trend to transition from summer into fall. Maxi skirts are great because they are much more versatile than maxi dresses. They allow you the option to pick any top, adding a bit more of your own personal style into the outfit.
Sydne took her thigh-high split maxi skirt and paired it with lace-up heels and gold accessories. By showing a bit more leg and sticking with a skirt that doesn't have too much volume, she's able to flatter her smaller, petite frame. To make this outfit more daytime you could pair the skirt with a loose top and espadrilles.
Since the skirt is a knit, it’s ideal for traveling or sitting for long periods. There’s no chance of wrinkles! By doing a black and white theme, you can make the maxi more minimalist than boho.
Haley (Vest Dressed) went with slits, too. Having two slits in this maxi skirt makes it more lightweight, ideal for lingering hot days. The skirt has a higher waist, which allows you to pair it with a crop top. Adding black booties, a hat and arm candy gives the look a more accessorized feel that works well when you're taller. When it gets cooler, you could also add a leather jacket!
Maxi skirts will be one of your most comfortable closet staples. As long as you get one in a more neutral or darker color, you can even wear it year-round!
