Wedding style with East Side Bride: the maxi skirt alternative

May 3, 2011

There are SO MANY maxi skirts going on right now.

If I were planning a wedding, I’d seriously consider pairing one of these gorg skirts with a little tank or a simple tee (a la Sharon Stone) instead of wearing a dress.

Bonus: It’s much easier to get the right fit when you’re buying two separate pieces.

Thakoon Addition Washed-Silk Tank + Calla Print Full Length Skirt or Calypso St. Barth Ruched Long Skirt.

Theyskens’ Theory Coca Tank + Donna Karan Hammered Stretch-Satin Maxi Skirt (You could go all out and buy the “wrap-effect” top that goes with the skirt, but I kind of like the idea of dressing it down.)

Gap Crewneck T + Alberta Ferretti Multi-Layered Tulle Skirt.

And if you really wanted to feel like, um, a princesss, this Joseph Cream-Satin Tank + Lanvin Taffeta Maxi Skirt work pretty well together. A feather cape wouldn’t hurt either.
