Last time, I shared a versatile “uniform” that’s great to wear year-round. Today, as another weekend is coming, I want to share an ageless, flattering, casual “uniform” that’s perfect for warm weather: sleeveless top + maxi skirt.
By pairing with tops in different colors, prints, materials, shapes or styles, a maxi skirt can result variety of outfits that are great for all summer events. When combined with accessories, the list of outfits can be endless.
As you can see from above two looks, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum perfectly showed us how to play with this “formula” at different ages: For women in their 30s or under, have fun with your maxi skirts, choose leopard, floral or striped ones, pair them with a slouchy tank top, studded booties and straw fedora for an urban-bohemian chic look.

When you reach 40, look for high-quality pieces in graceful colors: black, olive or aubergine colored maxi skirts with great drape are elegant, and easy to transform for many occasions. Instead of pairing them with graphic Tee or casual tank top, choose silk blouse or cami, which shows the mature sexiness.
Wedge sandals are comfy for walking around while giving you the extra height and femininity. Bright colored, trendy or even whimsical accessories are great ways to show your fashion taste without looking overdone.
