How to Style American Eagle’s Maxi Skirt This Summer
May 15, 2014
It's really been warming up outside (it's about time!) so I've been baring a little more leg lately. But, sometimes a mini skirt just won't do. That's why I love the American Eagle front slit maxi skirt.
I'm a fan of dressing laid-back but looking put-together. American Eagle's maxi skirt gives me the best of both worlds. Its fun, candy pink striped maxi skirt adds a serious punch of colour to my day while keeping me incredibly comfy.
The trick to pulling together a chic but comfortable outfit is to combine your maxi skirt with stand-out footwear and a little bit of structure - like my denim vest, also from American Eagle (summer 2013 collection).
My choice for footwear was a comfortable pair of leather gladiator sandals - studded with rhinestones, of course! I grabbed them from Aldo last summer and plan on getting at least a few more seasons out of them.
As for jewelry, I kept it simple with Swarovski crystal stud earrings and a silver chain bracelet from Marciano. It's important to not go overboard with accessories no matter what the occasion, but especially when styling a laid-back look.
I can see myself wearing this all summer long - from patio dinners to music festivals. I also think it makes a totally simple bathing suit cover for a day at the beach. Just pack a plain white t-shirt (or grey, like me!) and you'll have an impromptu outfit in 2 seconds flat.
Be sure to check out how Nicole of Dainty Girl styled her maxi skirt, too! And catch us both on the official American Eagle blog. :)
