Fashion Jobs – To The Max

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

My style is very feminine, with that said my “go-to” staple is the maxi skirt. It’s my favourite article to wear because wherever I’m going I can dress up my maxi in the snap of a finger. The maxi skirt can take you from day to night and with spring around the corner, what better opportunity do you need to transition into the new season with a skirt? If you’ve never owned a maxi skirt, opt for a solid neutral colour with a high waist; it’s very flattering with a feminine silhouette. For a casual event, my favourite way to wear my maxi skirt is with a simple t-shirt, statement necklace and a fitted leather jacket; it’s effortlessly cool, comfortable and, of course, fashionable. Maxi skirts are so beautiful dressed up, with a beautiful embellished blouse, belt and pumps, you’re sure to be the belle of the ball.

There’s a new girl in town and she’s not wearing a mini. Move over micro, the belle of this ball shows a lot less skin. Below the knee is the new chick on the scene. From mid-calf to maxi, Marilyn pleats or mermaids, these cuts leave a lot to the imagination and are redefining what sexy is. Why do i like it? It does the work for you—it adds all the drama on its own and takes you from a.m. to p.m. in one elegant spin of fabric, which is why it’s an invaluable piece in your closet. For day, you can wear a tee and flats. For evening, heels and a camisole. As demure as a southern belle but with all style and sophistication of a big city lady. Go on, sidewalk sweep those hemlines.
