Push It to the Maxi

From Betsy Johnson to Roberto Cavalli, one of the hottest trends for summer is the Grecian inspired maxi skirt! My go-to maxi style is a high-waisted extra long silhouette, as this synchs the waste, and one of the best aspects of this floor length skirt is that it lengthens the body to give you that “legs for days” look. Legs for days and a tiny waste? Sign     me     up!! Unfortunately, if you’re at all like me, Betsy and Roberto are a bit out of the budget, but check out these fabulous options that will keep you rocking your street runway, and still eating three meals a day!

For some fashion eye candy, check out this high waisted maxi skirt by Hinge, that also happens to come in a shade of this season’s hottest color: Paprika! Pair it with sky-high wedges and jaws will drop. What’s even more exciting is that this little number is currently ON SALE at Shop.Nordstrom.com. As always, click the photo to head there.

For a less expensive option, try this maxi from Forever 21 in light blue. Pair it with some strappy sandals for a cute hippy-chic look.

Nervous about going floor length? Go for a hi-low style to ease your way in.  One of my fav’s for the season is this Sanctuary number in “Minty”, which is ALSO on sale at Shop.Nordstrom.com! Pair with funky heels for a night on the town, or keep is casual with Grecian sandals – either way, be ready for some envious stares.

For a less expensive, but completely fabulous option, check out this abstract hi-low option from Forever 21. Make a bold statement by adding a bright shoe, or for a less-is-more look, stick to a black heal or flat.

With these looks, you’ll be set for a chic summer filled with BBQs, rooftop patios, date nights, and girls nights, all while looking young and fabulous.
