After seeing Olivia Palermo wear her maxi skirt as a dress, I decided to re think how I ‘normally’ wear my maxi skirts. I have posted a quick and easy outfit post about using a light maxi skirt as a dress but this week I decided to try something new with my Zara silk maxi skirt.
I bought this skirt a few years ago and unfortunately it has only been worn on a few occasions, not because I don’t love it, simply because I didn’t think of different ways to wear it. The standard ‘on the hip’ look was one I stuck with, it made it really difficult to find a top and wasn’t very flattering.
So with a little imaginative thinking I came up with this little ensemble the other morning…I tried it two ways, stuck with the second option (shown in the pictures) but I did like the first too, so hurrah, two new ways of styling up my beautiful skirt.
My skirt pulled up high with my blouse tied around my waist.
Worn with super simple black and gold sandal.
Skirt worn around the waist with a little midriff showing 😮 Again white sheer blouse knotted at the waist.
This is something I never do..Get my midriff out, but I’ve got to say I quite liked it.
Wearing it like this also made my skirt a little longer, which is great as it gives a little hint of my sandals still.
