Maxi skirts are one of our favorite spring and summer staples. They’re an easy dressing piece that can work for a festival, date night, or even just running errands. Since we are such fans of their versatility, we asked two bloggers – Katelyn from The Skinny Blonde Girl and Nicole from Dainty Girl – to show us their #AEOSTYLE wearing our Front Slit Maxi Skirt.
Katelyn lives in downtown Toronto, loves all things marketing and has a penchant for collecting shoes and lipsticks. Her personal style is always changing, just as she’s always trying new beauty products and learning about new places in the city. The Skinny Blonde Girl is her not-so-secret diary of her everyday life, opinions on places and things and outfits she’s worn.
What inspired Katelyn’s look:
The trick to pulling together a chic but comfortable outfit is to combine your maxi skirt with stand-out footwear and a little bit of structure – like my denim vest, also from American Eagle Outfitters. I can see myself wearing this all summer long – from patio dinners to music festivals. I also think it makes a totally simple bathing suit cover for a day at the beach. Just pack a plain white t-shirt (or grey, like me!) and you’ll have an impromptu outfit in 2 seconds flat.

What inspired Nicole’s look:
The AEO Front Slit Maxi Skirt is one of those pieces that every girl needs in her spring and summer wardrobe. It’s effortlessly boho-chic and super comfortable with an elasticized waistband and soft jersey fabric. The slit is sexy without being too revealing and it makes this maxi skirt really easy to walk around in. I styled mine with a basic tank, a printed kimono and laser cut block heels for a bohemian summer look that’s perfect for a music festival, brunch or shopping!
