Editor's note: The following is a guest post written by Rachel Zoe, stylist, fashion designer, and creator of The Zoe Report. This week Rachel talks all things maxi!
If there is one silhouette I am coveting for Fall, it is a totally versatile and fashionable maxi dress or skirt. The floor-length style is very sophisticated yet easygoing and comfortable . . . who doesn't love that? So welcome the new season by lengthening your hemlines and introducing a maxi into your wardrobe asap!
The trick to owning the look is to aim for something in a lightweight fabric — cotton jersey or silk — and accessorizing accordingly. Rock a maxi casually during the day with flat distressed motorcycle boots and a colorful fringe scarf, then take it to night with high wedges and glam jewels — think dazzling earrings or a chunky necklace. So beyond. If your maxi of choice happens to be a skirt, be mindful to pair it with a body-hugging top (anything that is too flowy or loose all around is not flattering). Lastly, never forget to add your own personal spin on the look — maybe a cross-body bag or a multichain belt — and you will without a doubt look OOC this Fall season. xoRZ
