Winter isn’t the season you usually think of as being conducive to maxi skirts. Winter generally involves a lot of warm layers, trudging, and sitting around inside, but not this week in Austin! This week it’s the best version of winter: 80 degrees, sunny, and breezy. I’ll take it!
What’s weird about this weather in February is that I still feel like I should be dressing as if it’s cold still, as if my fashion’s acceptance of temperate conditions will somehow jinx it. So I’m wearing my breezy light skirt with a little sweater & tights. Keeping the top more fitted is paramount for outfits featuring maxi skirts, since the emphasis of the waist is frump-repellant and gives the illusion of extra height. Even if you’re not super tall, wearing a high-waisted maxi skirt will give you legs for miles. Try it, especially if it’s nice out today.
