TRY THIS: Patricia Maxi Skirt

Who doesn’t want clothes they can play with?  Versatility is everything when you’re trying to maximize your wardrobe without breaking the bank.  This week we’re featuring one of our stylish plus size maxi skirts.  The two looks here are both perfect for summer sun and fun.  With a vest, like the denim one we’ve paired both of these outfits with, you can achieve a chic casual look that is ideal for afternoons in the sunshine. The bold and colorful print our Patricia Maxi Skirt dons is excellent for mixing and matching with a bright lip color or fun wedges.  Play with accessories to bring out the magenta or gray in the print and opt for wearing the skirt low slung around the hips, higher on the waist or as a tube dress.  The key to making your wardrobe work for you is getting creative with all of the possibilities your different garments can offer.  Often, we can be limited to the way we first envisioned an outfit.  If it was presented to us as a skirt, it can be a stretch to see it any other way, however, this is what all the magazines try to teach us.  You know those articles that show one shirt five ways, or how stylists can make one dress look appropriate for ten events.  This is the key to wardrobe maximization; the ability to see garments for more than what they are, and grow your understanding of what they can offer.  With either of these looks, you’ll get a laid back California cool vibe that is exactly what summer is about.  Walk on the beach or head to a late night movie in either of these playful, yet put together looks.  Another thing that can be referenced from this example, is the variation of pieces.  Three pieces is really a proper “outfit.”  When you want to feel more put together, grab some denim (a plus size summer style staple), and some fab wedges for a ladylike look.  Sometimes shoes, a great bag or a statement necklace can be the focus of an outfit.  Hope these tips help!  Happy styling!
