BLOGGER CHALLENGE: MAXI SKIRT
Blog: Lexi The Second
What made you try this trend?
I've tried wearing maxi skirts in the past and they were always very comfortable because they were very easy to move around in. I decided to try a different maxi skirt trend, which was the see-through/lace for maxi skirts. I was quite hesitant at first because I wasn't sure about how I would go about styling it. Also, unlike the regular maxi skirts that cover your legs, the lace maxi somehow reveals and exposes your legs at the same time.
How do you build your outfit around it?
I started with a different kind of maxi skirt, a lace see-through one. From there I stuck to the more black and gray theme with only a gray top, and chunky black wedges to keep it simple.
How do you style it to make the look your own?
Since I really like wearing shorts, and the maxi skirt I chose was lace and see through, I decided to wear black shorts under the skirt.
How do you balance your look to avoid making it look over-the-top?
Since I wanted the skirt to stand out, I decided to stick to a very simple oversized gray top. I also used really simple go-to accessories, black chains.
How do you accessorize the maxi skirt trend?
I just used simple black chains, but I feel I should have worn more bangles and rings to give it more edge.
Can you give tips on how to wear this trend?
Many girls are apprehensive to try out the maxi skirt, especially when they feel like they are not tall enough. But in reality, it just depends on what style of maxi skirt you choose. Also, the cut of the skirt is very important, for example, if you are quite petite, it will not be very advisable to wear a printed maxi with horizontal lines. Make sure it fits well too so your dress won't overpower your frame.
How would you wear it during the day, night, to the beach, to a party, to work?
For day: try different colored maxi skirts and step away from the typical black. Beige, yellow, green and blue will be very refreshing colors for the day especially during summer.
For night or party: Try the sheer or lace maxi, pair it off with heels or wedges and a nice fitted top with gold or silver chains.
Lexi wore a top from Giordano, a lace skirt from Foz Shop paired with random accessories, Ray-Ban aviators and Graxie wedges.
