Style Must-Try: From a Maxi Dress to a Skirt

Styling Forever 21 Plus Size Floral Maxi Dress into a Maxi Skirt

Versatility is the main objective on my mind when I shop for new pieces. As I move around contemplating on a purchase, a million and one ways cross my mind on how I can get the most wear out of an item. If that’s the case, it comes home with me.

Maxi dresses can be styled in so many ways, especially when incorporating other pieces to layer with. Remember this lovely floral print? Let me refresh your memory (or if you’re new have a look) — this is the exact same maxi dress I wore back in September for my first event during London Fashion Week.

The idea of transforming the dress into a skirt came to me sporadically as I searched my closet for new pieces to add to my Poshmark closet. The idea is so simple and easy yet it took me this long to think of.

Start by holding the maxi dress at the middle, folding the top half (sleeves included) inside the dress. Once the top half is evenly tucked inside, grab a hold of both sides and wrap the now skirt around your waist. Because I am a bit shorter and it is a maxi, I preferred the high-waisted look. Grab a hold of the button placed right at the middle and secure the closure. As easy as that!

Working with a maxi dress without buttons shouldn’t stop you, simply worry about tucking the top half inside and slip right into it by securing it with a statement belt. For a visual demonstration, see a video tutorial I recently shared on my Instagram.
