With the warmer weather coming, now, is a great time to go out shopping for some lighter items of clothing. Skirts and dresses are ideal for the spring and summer. One of the most versatile styles is the maxi cut. This year, stores like jdwilliams.co.uk offer them in a great range of colors and materials. This makes it easy for you to find one that you can wear for any occasion. To help you to do that we have put together this maxi skirt roundup post.
Light and floaty maxi skirts
Quite a few fashion retailers are already stocking a good selection of lightweight skirts. These are ideal for your holidays. They do not take up a lot of space and most are fairly crease resistant. Plus, they can just as easily be worn for nights out as they can for a trip to the beach.
Tailored or semi-tailored maxi skirts
However, if you want a maxi skirt to wear to a party or for a special meal out it is usually best to opt for a tailored or semi-tailored cut. Try to find one that is made from a slightly thicker material. That type tends to hang nicely and keep their shape better. Tailored maxi skirts are not quite as casual looking as the light and floaty ones we were talking about, above.
Tube maxis are also a good option when you are after a slightly more sophisticated look. They also tend to keep their shape well and are often made of stretchy material, which means they are very comfortable to wear.
Wrap maxis with a tie waist
If you want the best of both worlds, try a wrap style skirt with a tie waist. They can be worn with the split/opening at the front or the side. You get to choose whether to show a bit of leg or not. If you want to cover up 100% all you need to do is to choose one that wraps over itself enough so that that the split will not fall open as you move.
Slouch style maxi skirts suit most women. They are extremely comfortable, yet also quite smart.
This year there are some particularly nice linen or jersey slouch maxi skirts available in the shops. Both fabrics hang well. However, some of the linen ones may have a tendency to crease. So, before you buy one take the time to do the scrunch test. Plus, we have noticed that you do not have to pay very much for them, so if you have a tight budget they are a particularly good option.
OK, so now you know a bit more about the different styles of maxi skirts that are available this season. Now, all you need to do is to choose the one you like and buy one that fits you well. This short guide will help you to get the fit right.
