Elegant Maxi Skirts
If you’re in need of a few maxi style skirts hanging in your closet, now is the best time! Look sweet and ladylike on your next date night with a silky maxi skirt. It’s easy to make an eye-catching outfit look sophisticated, but without making it look too mature. Opt for maxi skirt with a thigh high slit for a flirty yet tasteful style. Dare to bare it all with a pair of matching slits on either side for an alluring evening look. For a knockout outfit that’s completely in-the-now, add shimmery earrings and ankle strap heels and you’ll look dressed to kill.
Worthy of any style setter, maxi dresses are an easy, go-to pick no matter the season. With a lightweight, airy design, a maxi dress is a must have piece for fall. Add a hint of retro-inspired glamour next time you’re heading out with a fitted maxi dress. Unlike an a-line dress, which features a nipped waist, maxi dresses are quite the opposite—loose, flowy and with a drape that spirals downward. Don’t let your figure get lost in the mix, simply adding a belt at the waist helps highlight curves and accentuates your waistline. Chrissy Teigen took a walk on the wild side with a chic maxi dress in New York City. The green patterned maxi dress is just so chic, with long sleeves, retro-inspired buttons and translucent material showing a hint of skin. She opted for a style that features an empire waist, to highlight her hourglass figure. Totally comfortable and breezy for transitioning into fall, it’s official, we’re obsessed with gown-like maxi dresses.

Breezy, effortless and on-trend, look for a maxi dress with high side slits and a draped hem. Opt for a style with a fitted bodice to balance out the voluminous skirt. Combine a few layered necklaces and bangles to accessorize your look. Or, take a tip from fashion icon and celeb stylist, Rachel Zoe, with a hippie chic look. Wearing a gown and fringed cape ensemble from Burberry Prosum’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection, Zoe never fails to make a statement.
