Who says maxi skirts are just for summertime? ;) True, I love wearing them then because they're cool and comfortable. But they can be just as comfortable in the winter and they make such a nice change from pants! (I know a wonderful tailor with a fabulous European accent who can complain delightfully about how women wear pants way too often. She has a point lol ;) ). Plus, maxi's are available in enough colors, fabrics, patterns and prints to fill a Cave of Wonders, making them the perfect way to do something different! So, how do I make my maxi's winter-ready? Instead of a slip (gasp, yes, it is still appropriate to wear a slip under skirts :)), I wear leggings underneath. See? Simple. Easy. Comfy. Stylish. Boom. Brie Bella recently sported a colorful floral version of the full-length skirt and, while Nikki's choice was a pencil shape, there's no reason why we can't re-envision it as a maxi. Both girls paired their bright-hued bottoms with black tops, which is a great, staple way to balance a lot of color. To make the looks cold-weather-ready, skip the sleeveless-ness and go for a V-neck sweater or cropped chunky knit. Keep the boho flavor of Brie's look by adding a cozy faux-fur vest or corduroy jacket. Velvet will work as well, bringing in a really fun, vintage texture. Nikki's modern glam gets a casual spin via a classic denim jacket in black (you can also do chino or leather). For both looks, I've kept things a bit more carefree than polished by finishing the look with booties: studded suede for Brie's boho version and pointy-toed leather for Nikki's mod-cool-girl look. Hope this inspires you to #GoMaxi sometime soon :) Happy styling!
