Hey ladies. It’s Anna again from Fash Boulevard. While you may find yourself already falling hard for some of fall’s hottest trends, I wouldn’t count out the high-low maxi just yet. Thought of mostly as a summer favorite, the romantic skirt, which not only frames a fabulous pair of heels but also cascades into a dramatic tail hem, has the power to be a major player in your transitional wardrobe. Lauren has even incorporated these asymmetrical hemlines in her Kohl’s collection. Typically when it comes to wearing a flowy maxi, the “rules” say to stick with a fitted top to counterbalance the skirt silhouette. But with summer officially over, a new list of rules has emerged. I say it’s time to try the complete opposite and go with something a little more loose and unexpected for fall.
Below are two examples of how you can style your high-low maxi, from work to the weekend this fall…
skirt – Gianni Bini, top – Vince Camuto, handbag – Little Black Bag, scarf – Mimi Boutique, heels – Spiegel, bracelets – JewelMint, triangle ring – Forever21, cocktail ring – Chloe + Isabel
Grab your co-workers’ gazes by dressing up your high-low maxi for work with a chiffon blouse and chic pair of ankle boots. When styling a printed maxi, it’s ultra important to keep the other pieces simple to avoid creating an over-the-top ensemble.
blouse – Dorothy Perkins, necklace – Chloe + Isabel, skirt – LC Lauren Conrad, handbag – Wallis, ankle boots – Dorothy Perkins
For the Weekend
A chunky sweater will hang nicely for those colder days. And tights will help keep your legs warm, while a cute pair of flats will keep your feet comfy when you’re running around on the weekends.
