It's been a few months since our last Dressing the Team…and here we are already into fall! For this month, I wanted to share our take on a classic piece that transitions well from summer to fall—a maxi skirt. We're all wearing the same maxi skirt but in different colors so you can see how it works on all of us. And, we now have six people on the team! So you'll see a new face here below…
Traci, our new Social Media Coordinator, is joining us for her first Dressing the Team post! Traci says, "I paired the skirt with a comfy sweater to keep warm on cooler nights and to give it a more relaxed, casual feel for fall. I opted for a slightly cropped sweater so that it wouldn't cover too much of the skirt! And, I would wear this outfit to a dinner party or a night out with friends."
Jess, our crafting assistant, added a pop of whimsy to her look with a graphic tee. She says, "I like the juxtaposition of fancy and casual that make it a pulled together, but comfortable, look. I would wear this on the weekend…maybe for a day of wine tasting with friends."
Angie, our Visual and Product Designer, loves bold pattern. Angie says, "I paired the skirt with a relaxed button shirt and faux suede moto jacket to make this one of my go-to work outfits. I would wear this everyday at the office. The skirt is super vibrant, and the cut of it makes me feel like I can float on air!"
Julia, our Creative Content Producer & Stylist, loves the flirty and fun feel of the skirt. She says, "While I normally wouldn't have thought to wear this skirt because high-waisted skirts like this don't usually feel flattering on my hips, the lightness of the fabric made it more forgiving. I added a button-down shirt tied at the waist for a more feminine twist to a classic work shirt. I would wear this outfit to a family gathering, brunch, or a show at the Hollywood Bowl with my husband."
Courtney, my Executive Assistant, went for a comfy (yet classic) sweater and some high tops to go with her bright cobalt skirt. Courtney says, "A long maxi skirt doesn't have to be fancy or worn with heels. Making it work with casual pieces extends the life of the skirt. I would wear this outfit to class or out shopping. It's stylish and comfortable—the best of both worlds."
Joy, that's me! I wear maxi skirts all the time as they are most comfortable for me (after having two kids) when worn high waisted. The skirt feels airy yet has a weight to it that makes you feel very put together very easily. I paired this with a cropped shirt so that the smallest part of the waist is highlighted. I wore this outfit recently to see Hamilton and it felt very appropriate for the theater, yet very fun, too.
