One Style Staple You Can't Live Without!

Last week we posted about fall fashion trends. For some it may have been premature but just think, Fall Fashion Week 2013 was February 27th - March 7th! Yes you read that correctly, February. Now we will jump back to reality this week and focus on what is right on our door step. SUMMER!! How exciting is that? Bikini's, short shorts, sunglasses, floppy hats, sunscreen, and don't forget your scarf to add a little something to your outfit. Last on my list but equally important is maxi dresses!

Absolutely! Maxi skirts and dresses are a wardrobe staple every spring and summer, and this year isn't any different. There are so many different styles to choose from that you have to get one for yourself. You wont regret it!

You can wear a maxi skirt casual with a pair of pumps and a loose crop top, or dress it up with a pretty pair of sandals/wedges and some glam jewellery. However you decide to wear your maxi you will look chic and trendy this season. 

There are all sorts of different styles to choose from that will suit any lady. Bold block color to monochrome, pleats to tube and chiffon to jersey, all of these kinds of maxi skirts are on trend and you should make sure you have one of these in your wardrobe this season.

There are a few pro's and con's of a maxi but don't let any of it scare you away. 

  • Maxis are to summer barbecues as elastic waist pants are to Thanksgiving. You know you are going to want that extra piece of coconut creme pie or potato salad, now you don't have to worry about fitting or a eye sore bulge. 
  • You no longer have to worry about those horrid terms "thunder thighs, pale legs, and cankles" they do not exist within the maxis vocabulary.
  • Who doesn't love a statement piece. Lace, bold patterns, pleats, color, chiffon or even jersey. These are all a check in my book. 
  • Take caution when walking down stairs in a maxi, it doesn't take an incredibly clumsy person to loose their footing. It will be a record breaking flight time when your shoe catches onto your trend setting maxi. 
Any other cons out there have been investigated and don't seem to be as pressing. Such as your own hot house under your skirt, that can be avoided as long as you aren't sitting in a sauna. There was also another about hog tying yourself while in the middle of the grocery store, we are sure we have much more coordinated people following our blog. :) 

We hope this helps persuade you this summer to go on out there and purchase a super cute maxi. 

Remember it doesn't matter what styles are "in" if you don't feel comfortable choose trends and pieces that express something about you. The key to any super cute outfit is to have fun with it.
