LiiqeRiish Fetish: Maxi Skirts

So we've come to that season that everybody loves so much and cannot wait to jump into picnic outings, pool parties and camping trips in the wild. This season is ever so great but what's even better's that it gets better with the years for people who love style. Every year we get inspiration from the previous years for more eloquent immaculate styling. This year the rule of the game is, "less is more but more is genuinely stronger". First idea to our approach to a theme so wrapped in riddles is this, MAXI SKIRTS...the future, beautiful MAXI SKIRTS.
Maxi skirts are made in comfortable fabrics that are not only in beautiful designs but in great feminine colors too. From pleats to high-waist flows to angelic chiffon and see-throughs. With all the great designs these beauties are in we have to make sure that they keep their elegance with every outfit. Here are a few ideas
1. Solid Colored Maxis: These like jeans are a styling's kindergarten. You can go with floral crop-tops for a bohemian free-spirited feel, wooden bangles to go with that and and a pair of toe-relaxing sandals. Pair them with Breton striped tops for a more feminine Coco Chanel look with ballet pumps and a chic sling bag. You can choose from a range of to designs, prints and texture because these make very little noise so being playful with the rules is allowed. 

2. Stripped Maxis: Here, you're allowed to be playful but there has to be boundaries. It's edge to pair a striped maxi with a floral loose vest but the moment it becomes a entire kindergarten mural of polka dotted sunnies, floral top, tartan loafer and largely exaggerated croc-skin hand-bag you have to know to slow it down. Stripes are already a bit of a statement on their own, when you go for outfits with striped skirts remember to always keep it chic and classy with minimal color and minimal accessorizing.

3. Floral Maxis: For these just always lean with the solid color tops, it doesn't necessarily have to be a matching color but the coordination obviously must be felt by an over-looker. Floral maxis may have a potential of making a statement if worked well throughout the outfit. Don't make the mistake of wearing a floral maxi with an aztec print top and have neon colored accessories that's matching the shoes and the hair (unless you want to be recruited to show-case at the city museum)

4. Printed Maxis: From aztec to tribal to digital, you name it. All of these can be summed up in one simple rule. Minimalism is key.
