How to Style American Eagle's Maxi Skirt This Summer

How to Style American Eagle’s Maxi Skirt This Summer

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. :)
