On my recent trip to London, I got a little retail crazy and, of course, had to stop in Ted Baker—one of my favorite brands. When I saw this maxi skirt, I immediately started mentally shopping my own closet to create outfits for it. (Shopping tip: You should be able to make at least 3 outfits out of any new piece you purchase.) For this look, I wanted to make the skirt appropriate for daytime, so I paired it with a casual denim jacket. I could transition to an edgier evening look by wearing a leather jacket instead.
If you are like me and love the maxi skirt trend, here are a few of my tips to help you pull off the look:
- Make sure the hem length and heel height mesh. In this case, I wore flats so the skirt would hover just above the ground.
- For you shorter gals, a high-waisted maxi skirt will give the illusion of more height. (Heels never hurt either.)
- If you are pear shaped and want to camouflage your hips, avoid clingly material like a jersey knit and wear darker colors on bottom and lighter on top to balance your figure.
