Blog 3: How I tackle the maxi skirt

Before I
start, I just want to say thank you! I have had this blog for about two weeks
and I’ve already had over 1.2K of views! I’m shocked and surprised that it has
been this successful so thanks for all your support. If you have any ideas of
what you would like me to do next, just comment below or message me!

So, the
maxi skirt. It is a difficult piece but I’m sure it can be
tackled! There is such a wide range of maxi skirts so it can be hard to choose
one that’s right for you. It’s great for shorter people as it can make them
look taller, and for people my height, we can feel like giants. But it is
definitely worth taking the time to find a nice maxi skirt that suits you. So,
here’s how I styled it…

 
Top New look £5, Necklace Colette £5, Maxi skirt Primark £5, Boots Next £40
 
 
Flower garland Primark £4, Floral top New look £5, Maxi skirt Primark £5, Heels New look £10

The maxi skirt

I would
choose quite a plain skirt so then you can wear it with more things. Patterns
are awesome but they can limit your outfit which you really don’t want. My maxi
skirt is from Primark for about £5. Although cheap, it can look quite expensive
as the colour is white. Sometimes however white isn’t the way forward as you
can get loads of stains on the skirt so be careful where you sit! If you have
decided to go for a patterned skirt then style it with a denim jacket and plain
top.

The style

The style
of the maxi skirt can range as shown in my photos. You can go for a grunge look
or a girly look. This completely depends on your style. The grunge look is
great because it isn’t too gothic and gives the whole outfit a lighter feel
because of the colour of the skirt. This look is great for spring and autumn as
it keeps you warm as well. The girly look is sweet and summery. The white makes
it a vibrant and outgoing look, whereas the pastel coloured hairband and the black help to maintain the colour
balance.

The accessories

Contrasting
the colour of the skirt with a bright coloured necklace can make it look quite
sassy but I styled it with a bronze necklace to offset the black top but still keep the outfit really chic/classy   For the second outfit I choose a flower garland instead to give a subtle colour difference. The boots are helpful as it prevents the skirt from trailing on the
ground and also makes your legs seem endless. The other heels make it quite an elegant look. Would definitely recommend heels
under a maxi skirt!
