It's a sad day when the temps cool down and maxi skirts retire to the depths of our closets. So when one of my followers, Lenka K., tweeted me, “How do you style a maxi skirt in fall?” I began thinking of ways to maximize the wear of one of my favorite wardrobe essentials for cold Chi-Town weather. Here's what I came up with...
Fall is all about layers so instead of reaching for your favorite pair of skinnies, opt for a maxi skirt. Just add a cozy knit sweater and top it off with your favorite utility jacket and a bright scarf. If you want to glam up your look, I'd try a peplum top to add some shape, a pair of flat booties, a statement necklace, and a cool leather jacket. Soon you'll be able to order your pumpkin latte in your perfectly styled-for-fall maxi.
