Maxi skirts are a huge summer trend. This week I'm wearing a bright skirt from LOFT. We shot the photos by the waterfront in Brooklyn. The breeze really gave us a lot to work with as we tied to capture the movement of the skirt.

You probably have embraced the maxi dress trend--it's an easy one to wear and style. Skirts can be just as comfortable and look great on a lot of different figures.

How to Style Maxi Skirts

Maxi skirts work best with simple fitted tops. You've got to balance the volume of the bottom with a top that comes close to the body otherwise you'll look like a big sheet. Tents aren't chic.

Of course white works and I picked a simple tee from Splendid. I played with the jewelry a bit. The two pieces are also from LOFT (I'm participating in the LOFT GIRLS program so I get and insiders look into the fashions--love it!).

Wrapping things up, the bag is from Kate Spade($278). It also has a shoulder strap. The beachy weave is a nice touch for summer. And on my feet? Gold sandals (three years old) from Tory Burch that never seem to go out of style!

And don't forget--your toes are an accessory too! I picked a nice orange coral color to work back to everything in this outfit.
