Maxi Skirt Style Guide

One piece I will definitely be investing in for spring is a versatile maxi skirt (like this one by Joie. WANT). Unless you’re an Olsen twin circa 2010, the key to styling a maxi is not losing your shape. That’s not to say you need to show a lot of skin (although I am into the crop top/high waisted maxi look in a big way). Just make sure that your clothing ‘nips in’ somewhere along the torso via a tucked in shirt, waist-cinching belt, knotted button-down, or even a buttoned up blazer a la Rachel Zoe (“I die” over this look). Once you’ve defined your shape, start playing with layers like an oversized fur vest or leather bomber. The right styling can easily take your maxi skirts from day to night all spring and summer long (leg shaving not required!).
