Q: I recently purchased a black maxi skirt, but am undecided on whether I should keep it or not. I am 47 and afraid it may not be age appropriate. What are your thoughts?
A: This is such a great question! I say keep the maxi skirt—you can totally rock this look. Maxis are easy pieces to style, and you chose wisely in going with black. It’s super versatile since you can play around with patterned tops and layers and wear almost any kind of shoe!
For a casual everyday look, try a button-down chambray shirt tucked into your maxi. Wear a belt to add a bit more polish, then slip on flat, strappy sandals. Add subtle sophistication with a few classic accessories. Another great option to is layer the chambray top over a printed tank, and leave it unbuttoned, or throw on a denim jacket.
If you’re going out for an evening with friends, pair your maxi with a silky tank top and wrap (or a blazer in the cooler months). Rich tones and sleek fabrics add sophistication without any effort! Adding a cropped blazer or cardigan is a great way to maintain structure without losing the flowy effect of the maxi.
I would love to hear how you end up styling your maxi this season! XO Jodi
