To the MAX: Maxi Skirts

One of my favorite trends is back in action this spring! In case you couldn't guess from reading the title, I LOVE maxi skirts! 

Because, in it's own way, a maxi skirt can seem like a big and/or overwhelming piece, I've decided to debunk the mythical idea that maxis are hard to style.

I decided to use the Target skirt shown above in three different looks. That's right, one skirt done three ways. BOOM. 

The first look is for the easy-going girl. This look takes little-to-no effort to put together yet is comfy and trendy when running around. A strappy sandal and basic tank are a great go-to with any maxi.

The second look is inspired by another favorite trend--colorblocking! This trend is the perfect excuse to be bold with your look. For a fun addition, later this look with a printed scarf that brings out the bright color palette.

The last look is a bit unexpected,...just like the girl wearing it. I love the hard look of a feminie rock goddess and think a flowy maxi skirt is a great way to achieve this look. Layer a band tee with vintage/ thrifted leather or denim to achieve a more authentic look.

Be on the look out for maxi skirts as brands continue to roll out their spring fashion collections! And remember, these gems are not just a one note piece!

  1. I love anything maxi, I can hardly wait for spring to roll around so I can wear the skirts & dresses packed away in the top of my closet again!

  2. oooh love this maxi and how you paired it!

  3. I've had this maxi it in my virtual cart for days. I did buy two maxi's like this, but this color is so adorable. I LOVE the second style and of course the 3rd, but that's because I pretend I am much edgier than I really am. ha!

  4. I love the looks you made. I don't know how I feel about maxi skirts...but love maxi dresses! Hope you're having a great week. oxo

  5. These outfits are too cute! Can't wait for spring so I can try them out!
