The Maxi Skirt from Day to Night

A huge trend this summer is the maxi skirt! The maxi skirt comes in all colors, lengths, and cuts. One of the great factors of the maxi skirt is that you can wear it from day to night. Also maxi skirts look great on all body types, if you wear the correct blouse and jewelry. Here are two outfits, that take the same maxi skirt from day to night.

DAY TIME

The maxi skirt looks amazing with a loose fitting tank top and flat fun tribal sandals. Add some fun layered jewelry to give it some flare. This is the perfect day time outfit for running errands, going to the mall, or for your next vacation.

NIGHT TIME

Take the same exact maxi skirt and wear it to dinner, a party, or to the club. The maxi skirt looks sexy but classy with a bandeau. The bandeau shows just enough skin! When you add heels, a statement necklace, a sleek clutch, and popping color lipstick to a maxi skirt, it gives it an elegant and chic look.

Casual Look

  • Above-the-Knee Dress: a cute sundress with flowers or pattern is a perfect fit. The dress should not be to short, just above the knee is perfect. You can also try dressy separates, like a blouse and skirt.
  • Heels are NOT Required: try to wear ballet flats or fun detailed sandals.
  • No Flashy: sequins and rhinestones will be way to much for this kind of wedding.
  • Do Not Go to Casual: regular weekend clothes are not permitted. Do not wear ANYTHING denim. This is a very important event, so make sure to dress the part!
  • Hair and Makeup: keep it natural! For hair, do a sleek ponytail, loose up-do, or waves. For makeup, keep it light and fresh.

Semifomal Look

  • The Cocktail Dress: you can wear almost any color, it all depends on your preference. If you want to dress it up, just add a statement necklace and heels.
  • Do Not Go for the Super fancy: a floor-length dress or a dress with lots of sequins will look completely out-of-place. It will look like you are competing with the bride or bridesmaids.
  • Don’t Forget you LBD: you can always wear your favorite little black dress and add some flare. You can add a color belt, heels or statement earrings.
  • Wear the Heels: a little height always makes you look fancier and dressier.
  • Hair and Makeup: for hair: a updo. For makeup: a bold lip.

Formal Look

  • Long or Short: you will see both long and short dresses, but a long dress is the natural fit for a formal wedding. If you do choose a short dress, make sure it is knee-length and has “luxe” detailing such as ruffles or shine.
  • Standout Accessories: add a sparkly statement necklace, strappy heel, and metallic clutch to give your look glam and beauty.
  • Do Not Reveal too much Skin: try to stay away from high slits, a low back, or a plunging neckline. These types of dresses are to sexy for a wedding.
  • Dress to Impress: make sure you are dressed up enough. With formal wedding more is better. For formal wedding, daily wear is not permitted.
  • Hair and Makeup: this is a great time to consider to get your hair and makeup done professionally. Go for a polished hair style and sleek lips and eyes.
