I can already tell, my fall and winter obsession is going to be big comfy sweaters!! I have bought at least 6 already this year and since it's been a little cooler, that's what I have been wearing everyday! As far as Maxi Skirts..... We all know I wore the crap out of them all of summer, especially this particular one. Now It's the perfect time of year to mix the two!!! I love how this looks comfortable, simple, and casual.... but it also looks a little bit unique. A lot of people think that once summer ends, maxi skirts and dresses should be put away. But I definitely beg to differ. However, I think there are a couple things to keep in mind when wearing this look!
- Keep the sleeves of the sweater rolled up or pushed up to elbows. It makes the look a little more tailored and doesn't make you look like you are drowning in your outfit!
- Make sure the sweater isn't too long! I like the front to be rolled up or tucked up a little so its shorter in the front and longer in the back. This will also help keep it from looking too frumpy. Or you can rock a high waisted maxi with a cropped sweater and get the same effect!
-And 3... don't rock the flat boots with this look!!! heeled booties might be okay (even though I'm not a fan) I feel like it makes you look matronly. Sandals look a little better in my opinion.... or heels. That is why I think it's best to wear a look like this in the early fall when you can get away with wearing sandals or heels!
