Why Wear Pants This Fall....

When you can wear a Maxi skirt! Maxi skirts are a hot fashion item this fall, a must have item in your collection. These skirts are, in a way, taking the place of pants. Once upon a time when you thought about the Maxi Skirts, you would think about Spring, or Summer, or something that you would wear on the beach.

Gone are those days, Maxi Skirts are available in a variety of styles, fabrics, and colors. In this post I'll show how I style my favorite Maxi Skirts, and I'll show you how I get two looks for my Maxi Skirts.

Notes: The pieces that I chose for this are oldies, but goodies. These are pieces that I've had in my collection. I think I bought them last year, or earlier in this year. I live in Florida, and it can be hot (in the 90's) sometimes 10 months out of the year. We Floridians don't always get to wear our fall and winter collections when we buy them.

Styling notes: Keeping fall in mind, I paired this tan and black maxi skirt with an burnt orange shirt, tan belt, and a tan strappy sandals. I accessorize the outfit with gold jewelry.


    


Syling note 2 :  How I achieved looks two and three. I pull my maxi skirt up over my breast. I sometimes wear a strapless bra, depending on the type of jacket or cover up I'm going to wear over the maxi skirt. I then added a belt to add shape to skirt. Then I pulled the back down slightly, to give that high low effect. I then gather the waist to add more style and shape to the skirt. In this look I wore a peach jacket over the maxi skirt and I pinned it (under the lapel, so the pin doesn't show) on the inside of the black band to keep the jacket in place (to hide the bra).

  1. I also do the maxi skirt to dress thing. It's a great way to expand the wardrobe cheaply.
