Hi everyone! My name is Jyotsna and I’m the blogger behind Cuppajyo, which is a personal style blog. Other than fashion, I do occasionally write about beauty tips and other things that inspire me. I am originally from India and now live in the beautiful city of Boston with my dear husband. I am so excited to be guest posting on Shannon’s blog today! I absolutely adore her sense of style and have been a follower and huge fan of her blog since forever. For today’s post, I am going to be sharing 3 maxi skirt outfits, with different style vibes. Like its fashion counterpart the maxi dress, the Maxi Skirt is a summer fashion staple that every girl needs in her wardrobe! With a plethora of designs, prints, cuts and colors to choose from, there is something for everyone out there. It is super versatile; you can wear it to the beach, dinner, an event or even work ( given the style and cut are office appropriate ). And the best part is that they can be made to work for most seasons; they are easy to transition to the cooler months, with booties and a leather jacket.
OUTFIT 1 : Tie Dye Maxi skirt For the first outfit, I decided to go the casual route with a basic tank and a cotton tie dye maxi skirt. Tie dye, the quintessential print for music and hippie stereotypes is now also big on the fashion scene. I love the laid back easy feeling that tie dye resonates. It is vibrant, breezy and perfect for those casual summer days. A bright red scarf and beige flat sandals complete this look.

OUTFIT 2 : Pleated Maxi Skirt
For the second post, I styled a pleated Maxi skirt in a soft powdery blue shade. The pleated maxi skirt is undoubtedly the most popular version of the maxi skirt. Thin to medium accordion like pleats are super pretty and flattering for most body types. Larger pleats can tend to add more volume if you prefer that; but thin to medium ones are soft, they skim the body lightly and move gently as you tread. I love pairing a pleated maxi skirt with a fitted top : like a crop top or a fitted tee or tank tucked in. The skirt can be worn casually with flats or dressed up with heels. Throw on a statement necklace and a bold lip and you should be all set with this outfit! And if it gets a little chilly, a structured jacket like a denim jacket would look great with this look.

OUTFIT 3 : Floral Maxi Skirt
For the third and final post in the Maxi skirt series I decided to style a Floral Maxi Skirt. A gorgeous floral print in a lightweight material like chiffon or georgette, makes a great dressy summer outfit. I adore this maxi skirt which I actually purchased last year but never got around to wear it until recently for a date night with my husband by the beautiful Boston waterfront. The details in the skirt like the side slit and the sheer sheath beneath the knees make it so romantic. I added some neon accessories like the necklace and heels; and a shiny clutch to complete this date night look.
