Pick of the Month: My Maxi

Posted On 12 Jun 2012

Summer is officially upon us which means one thing: it’s time to ditch the boots, jeans and high necks, and go for flowy summer dresses, cropped shorts and this season’s must-have, the maxi skirt.

 

Be it full-length and fabulous, tiered and to-die-for, or cropped and cute, the maxi skirt is an essential in every lady’s wardrobe (or let’s face it, their suitcase!) this summer.  There’s no need to worry about your social calendar; this skirt has “feminine” written all over it, and it’s ideal for any occasion. But if you are looking for the ultimate mix of comfort and chic, pair your maxi skirt with heels for a night out on the town. If you prefer to dress it down, the skirt acts as the perfect beach cover-up, or weekend wear, when worn with sandals.

 

Printed, plain or pleated, striking vibrant colours or relaxing pastel shades, we all need a Mr. Maxi in our life. Follow in the ever-so-stylish footsteps of Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian and couple your maxi skirt with a plain top to allow the skirt to take the limelight.

 

 

To ensure your outfit has that extra “oomph”, the maxi skirt can be paired perfectly with big bangles to give it that much-loved bold look. Depending on the occasion, a clutch bag would be the perfect partner for a classy, sophisticated look; while an over-the-shoulder bag is ideal for a lunch date or a casual trip to the mall. All in all, the maxi skirt’s beautiful cut, and breath-of-fresh-air appeal is ideal for every woman.
