How to dress down a maxi skirt for every day use

16. February 2018

This blog entry will probably come as a HUGE chock for those of you who know me well. BUT! I have ventured out of my comfort zone, sorta’, and dipped my toes in the pools of skirts and dresses over the course of the last 6 months or so.

Sometimes some new and refreshing have to happen to your style and wardope. And these tiger-leaps of fashion often happens in the tail of something major and life-changing. For me that was my encounter with my resent metabolism disease. It was life-changing for many reason and I feel like it truly changed who I am and how I run around in the world. I will not go into details in this post, but surely in one to come.

However, we were on the topic of maxi skirts… I have never been much of a girly girl, always into sports and computers and wearing pants. I’ve always been the one going to clubs in pants, nice ones, but pants. Occasionally, I’d slip into a pair of shorts, or a looong tee if I was going out somewhere tropical. But an actual dress or skirt… not really my thing. Ever.

So, image my surprise when I felt an urge to buy this…

I know! Sooo the opposite of pants right?! It all began when I was invited by L’Oreal to the infamous Elle Style Awards 2017 Copenhagen edition. I knew I had to wear something that was a bit off my every day pants radar. And browsed the usual sites for inspo. H&M, Asos, OtherStories, Cos, Zara and so on.. and stumbled upon this beauty. I thought to pair it with an warn down Justin Bieber shirt and sneakers – to not abandon my style entirely, due to one fancy invitation. I never ended up wearing this outfit to the actual event, but that is how the skirt idea was planted in my head.

Since then, I have developed a true love for skirt, warn down tees or sweatshirts and sneakers. Here is how I usually style them.
