In this new series “HOW DO YOU WEAR…” I’ll be picking trends that can be tricky to wear. The first one featured here is long skirts because oftentimes women say that they don’t really know what tops to wear with them.
LOOK #1: The Boho Beauty: The leotard is a godsend. It’s perfect to wear underneath long skirts, high-waisted skirts and pants, and shorts. It’s totally hassle-free because you don’t have to tuck anything in anywhere. I’m spotted out and about in my black American Apparel long-sleeve backless leo all the time.
LOOK #2: The Glam Rawker: I need this outfit ASAP. It’s totally something I’d throw on to just run errands. I like how the white YSL tee makes even this feminine tangerine maxi skirt look super-casual. Paired with a leather bomber jacket, leopard loafers, and burgundy suede messenger, this outfit screams glam rawk.
LOOK #3: The Trendsetter: Kind of a hybrid between boho and glam, this look has a blue pleated silk skirt with a black crop top, and a to-die for Missoni-esque sequin clutch. I have been searching high and low for a crop top like the one in this look because it’s purrr-fect to wear with high-waisted maxi skirts. Not to be worn as a belly shirt, the skirt should almost meet the bottom of the crop top so that just a sliver of your mid-to-upper stomach is showing. (Perfect to show off those abs you’ve been slaving away at in the gym!)
Notice how each look had different proportions; the boho look had the top tucked in, the glamrawk look had the top hanging out over the skirt, and the trendy look had a cropped top. Fashion is all about playing with different proportions and styles!
How do YOU wear your maxi skirts?
Stay glamorous. Rawk on.
