Going to a festival? Off on a roadtrip? Boho fashion is the way to go! You can never go wrong with colourful pieces and beautiful patterns that instantly make your day a lot brighter. Pair your patterned skirt with a plain tank or cropped top and throw on a cotton, crochet or denim vest. Bohemian clothing is some of the easiest to mix with so you won’t have any trouble mixing your maxi skirts and boho chic blouses with other items in your wardrobe!
Don’t forget to accessorize! Sometimes these little accents will do the trick for an effortless boho look. Wear a beaded or layered necklace over your plain top and add that extra edge to your look. When choosing a bag, go for sling bags with a little fringe or beads and other bohemian accents to compliment your maxi. Slip on a simple pair of sandals and you’re good to go!
Oh, and don’t forget your hippie band and round sunnies!
A maxi skirt is a perfect cover up when you’re at the beach. You can wear it over your bikini bottom when you just want to walk along the shore or lie down under a beach hut. For accessories, just grab your shades and beach hat and enjoy the summer scenery.
A maxi skirt or dress is also perfect when going on a romantic dinner by the beach. It gives a simply elegant vibe to a tropical setting.
You can also experiment with your maxi. Try tying a knot to the side, front or back to give it a layered asymmetrical look which is super perfect for summer!
Girls usually save their maxis for summer and spring, but it actually works great for fall and winter as well. Just add the right layers and you’ll stay warm and cozy. You can wear a plain sweater and tuck it under your patterned maxi and layer in a thick scarf. Wear heeled ankle boots with socks or tights to keep your feet warm. You can also layer in a long cardigan over a blouse that’s tucked in your skirt. Add a thin leather belt and a beanie for a super cool and comfy look. Alternatively, we love the new suede ponchos that have emerged with Lokoa’s new windswept line – absolute stunner and perfect for early spring weather.
A baby pink pleated maxi skirt is perfect for an all-dolled up girly look. Pair it with a lacy top and add in some gold or silver accessories, a cute purse, and heels. Doing an up do will also work nicely, perfect for a lunch date!
A flouncy floral maxi with a plain fitted off-shoulder top would also be a lovely look. You can accessorize with a nice headband and a long necklace, then slip on a cute pair of sandals or flats to finish the look.
From Girly to Grunge
You can also go grunge with that girly pink maxi skirt you have lying around. Throw on a printed white t-shirt or tank top and layer in a black leather jacket to give off a cool and edgy vibe. Finish your look with high-heeled ankle boots, a belt, and a black bag.
