The Convertible Maxi Skirt

In the most recent edition of our SHE Wears series I wore a maxi skirt as a dress, a trick I picked up this year from other bloggers. It was such fun when I realized I could turn my maxi skirts into something entirely different. Sometimes with maxis, at least for myself, I find that I wear them the same way all the time, with the same top and accessories. Switching them up into dresses really refreshes your idea of them and opens your creative eye. It's a great trend to try, and I was very excited recently when I saw Alexis Bledel rocking the exact look!

Back in June, Alexis was spotted at the opening night performance of Cirque du Soleil's new show Zarkana wearing this lovely Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent convertible tiered skirt/dress. I love how she continued the softness of the dress with the metallic sandals and added some unexpected substance with the belt.

Besides being an utterly priceless way to add versatility to your wardrobe, maxis are so easy to wear year-round. Worn as a dress I could totally see this one paired with a leather jacket and high boots. If that's not incentive to get on the maxi skirt train, I don't know what is!

Have you ever tried switching up your maxi skirt to a dress? I'd love to hear about it!
