Spring 2011 trend: maxi madness

Not sure how to look your best in maxi skirts? Use these tips to help you look your best on campus in spring 2011's hottest trend.

Try the Trend: Maxi Skirt

Spring 2011 fashion is headed south from short skirts to hemlines hitting the floor.

Maxi skirts can be frumpy or grungy, but with the right fit and key accessories the dreaded bag lady look can be avoided.

The beauty about this silhouette? No need requirement to be super model skinny or extremely tall to rock spring’s hottest trend.

To achieve an effortless, chic style for springtime, keep in mind these critical tips when shopping for your perfect maxi skirt.

Maxi Madness

#1 Proportion is Everything:

When shopping for a maxi skirt, fit is the most important factor. Select a skirt length that just skims the floor to make your frame appear longer and leaner.

To avoid being overwhelmed with this trend, stick with a jersey material that shows off your shape.

#2 Get Waisted:

Highlight your waist with a belt to create a sleek silhouette. Have some fun with the belt you choose!

A woven belt projects a laid back bohemian look, whereas an animal print feels bold and eclectic.

#3 Toss on a Cropped Jacket:

I love the look of two juxtaposing styles in one outfit. Cover up with a cropped leather jacket with a flouncy floor length skirt; you will project femininity but with just the right amount of unexpected edge.

#4 Dress it Down:

A floor length skirt may seem formal, but a few common casual staple items make this trend wearable any day of the week. With a simple tank or tee, strappy flat sandals and an eye-catching pendant necklace, your everyday basics are instantly updated.

#5 Two Trends in One:

If you are a dare devil with this season’s trends why not sport two in one outfit? Crop tops are another must for spring and paired with your favorite maxi, you’ll embody the modern boho.
