It is impossible to ignore the impression given off by the well-dressed woman who looks and feels confident, comfortable and excited about her clothing.  Looking great on the outside essentially triggers happiness on the inside, and the combination of the two results in a woman who is proud of all she that has to offer. However, it takes time to plan an outfit, choose the right accessories and then put it all together for the perfect look to express each woman’s unique individuality.

I am happy to see the resurgence of the maxi skirt for this fall’s fashion-forward fabulous set. There are dozens of new styles, colors and outfits out there! Despite their overwhelming factor of diversity, every look has one thing in common. They flatter the figure, regardless of the woman’s shape, and are versatile enough to be dressed up or down with a simple scarf, belt, jacket or other accessories.

Pair them with a hip-length vest for a long, slenderizing, unified look. If you are less supermodel tall, simply wear your maxi skirt with the perfect pair of shoes—this is where a wedge boot or high-heeled ankle boot comes in handy.

The pleated maxi dress is a wardrobe in and of itself! Paired with a cool wrap and a denim shirt underneath, you will already be good to go. Trade the wrap for a thin cardi and you will be the envy of the jet set. If your aim is to stand out in a crowd, wear a maxi dress in a bold color, paired by a black turtleneck underneath and black high boots.

Chunky necklaces and bangle bracelets are the perfect ingredients to accentuate the look. If you’re more of a shy flower, try your maxi in soft, pale, autumn colors with an off-white cardigan and simple accessories like small hoop earrings or a chain pendant necklace.

Do not fear accessories! Choosing the right accessories is the primary factor that determines whether or not you are a fashionista force to be reckoned with. Decide on the look you want, then choose to either pair a bold necklace with simple earrings or reverse the look and pick dramatic, big hoops to pair with a simple necklace.

If you would prefer a nice splash of color, try a glamorous scarf around the neck. The rules are simple for wearing these versatile fashion accessories. If your skirt is constructed with a patterned fabric, choose a solid scarf in one of the colors that can be found in your skirt. If the skirt is a solid color, go all out with the patterned scarves in complimentary colors. All you have to do at that point is wait for the flattery to come pouring in.

You are going to have fun this fall in your maxi skirt, boots and accessories. They will help you exude confidence and excitement as you turn heads an re-discover your inner fashionista!
