8 Fun Ways to Style a Lularoe Maxi Skirt

8 Fun Ways to Style a Lularoe Maxi Skirt | Sedruola Maruska

I love a beautiful maxi skirt! It doesn’t matter the season because they are so great to style in different ways.

However, I have to admit, the first time I saw Lularoe I was underwhelmed. I think it was because I saw tons of leggings and t-shirts with crazy patterns and wondered, ‘how are those stylish?’. I hadn’t seen the maxi skirts, or any skirts,  so I wrote it off.

One day my cousin invited me to her group on Facebook. I didn’t know what it was about exactly, but she was wearing some super cute dresses and skirts so I checked it out. Turns out Lularoe wasn’t just about leggings and t-shirts! They have dresses, skirts, and dusters, who knew?!

To make a long story short, I won a pair of leggings that felt like butter. So I bought a maxi skirt that stood out and thus my love for styling the maxi skirt!

Maxi Skirt With Jean Jacket

If you have a jean jacket, or any jacket, it’s a great way to casual it down or dress it up. The style is all up to you.

Maxi Skirt Under Wrap Top

This has to be one of my favorite ways to wear this skirt, under a wrap around top! As you can tell my skirt doesn’t have any purple in it, but orange and purple are best buds on the color wheel so this looks fun! Remember, you don’t have to be “matchy” to look amazing. Complimentary colors together gives you a “I know color” type of look. Besides, style is about you and no one else!

Maxi Skirt With Tank

For summer fun, wearing the maxi skirt with a tank top is breezy and beachy! I matched my tank to my skirt, but remember, you don’t have to. You can decide to wear a contrasting or complimenting color and coordinate your sandals. It’s all up to you. (sneakers would look great with this style too!)

Maxi Skirt With Tank & Jacket

Remember that jacket? You can layer it on top of the tank for a great “ready for anything” type of look. Breeze starts to pick up, no worries, you’ve got a jacket at the ready.

Maxi Skirt With Tank Underneath

Now let’s really have some fun! Instead of over your skirt, why not under giving you a longer look?! I love this look because it turns a regular tank into a skirt top and that’s so fun!

Maxi Skirt With Black Off Shoulder Over Skirt

This look is just a top switch up worn over the skirt. Why wear a regular t-shirt when you can do an off-shoulder T that looks super sexy!

It’s back to school time which means everyone’s looking for fashion deals! Well, look no further because I’ve compiled a list of deals from fun retailers across the web.

When I was going to school it was exciting to grab new clothes and imagine how cute I’d be for class. Although I’m no longer in school, I get excited when the weather begins to turn because I love Fall! I love the layering and wrapping of sweaters and drinking hot cocoa. Beyond that, I love fashion deals!

I don’t have an endless budget for clothing and I imagine you don’t either. When I find a deal that’s awesome I love to take advantage of it, especially since I’m not an “all the time” shopper. That’s why I thought I’d bring the deals to you.

My quick disclaimer is this: Yes,  some links are affiliate links, but not all. I’m sharing what I think would most benefit you. I’ll let you know which retailers I’ve actually had experience with.

JustFab

The first retailer is JustFab! I LOVE them because they make it so easy to buy super cute stuff almost every month at a great price. I HATE them for the very same reason! When you join their VIP program you’ll pay $39 a month into your account. If you don’t use the money, it stays in your account. When you’re ready, you can use the money in your account to purchase anything on their site. If it isn’t in the budget for you to pay the $39, you can skip a month by going to your personal style area.

It’s like having a personal shopper!

Well, they’re currently doing a $10 promotion (which is how I got a pair of super cute boots last year) for your first style. Just click here, on any link or the image below to get started.

Azbro

I’m going to send you down the fashion discount rabbit hole that is Azbro! When you get there you’ll find so many amazing dresses at wonderful prices, you may not find your way back to say thanks. So, let me just say “you’re welcome” now! Azbro is a sister store to Oasap (we’ll talk about them later) so I have a bit of experience with their items. I was very pleased with everything I purchased (see this post & this post) from clothing to jewelry.

All over their site are back to school, Labor Day and Fall discounts so let me just list a few to make it easier for you:

Labor Day Sale!Up to 85% Off!$8 OFF $65 with LBD8

ModCloth

Last year when I was looking for the right bikini I stumbled across ModCloth. Not only did I find my bikini, but I fell in love with their slightly retro look and feel. I also fell in love with the fact that they have clothing for all sizes. Super cute clothing for all sizes to be exact! So, I had to share a few of their current deals with you. Please be warned, some are JUST FOR THIS WEEKEND so be sure to grab them while you can (8/26/17 – 8/28/17).

Fab Friday Deals! Each Friday ModCloth Will Feature Select Styles At 40% Off. Starts Every Friday @ Midnight EST, Ends Every Friday @ 11:59 PM EST

Oasap

As I mentioned above, Oasap is a sister company to Azbro but with a slightly different, more adult, feel. When I browse Oasap I’m always drooling and making plans to pick up a dress or top or earrings for anything that’s coming up. Their styles are fun, classic and affordable. It also helps that they always have tons of sales going on at any given time!

As I’m looking for a few new pieces for Fall, this will definitely be one of my stops. Here are a few deals you’ll find irresistible:

Labor Day Sale! Save Extra $19 Off $119+ Order with Code:LABOR19

5 Fashion Mistakes You Can Avoid Making

5 Fashion Mistakes You Can Avoid Making | Sedruola Maruska

Fashion mistakes are common, we all make them. Thing is, they’re not mistakes because we’re not “age appropriate” or “wearing the latest fad.” The reason they’re mistakes is because they are particular to each of us.

I’m huge on wearing what makes you feel and look good. You don’t have to justify your unique style to anyone. However, there are still some fashion mistakes we make when we think it’s just our “style”

23 Fashion Tips for Timeless Women

5 Fashion Mistakes You Can Avoid Making | Sedruola Maruska

Dress Your Body Shape

The biggest fashion mistakes I see are when we don’t dress our body shape. When we dress for someone else’s body and not the one we live in. Not only is it obvious, it can give the wrong message.

There are several different body shapes that we as women can have. According to Shop Your Shape there are 8 major types (click to view). We put so much emphasis on weight that we fail to see that dressing our shape is what’s most important.

Knowing accepting and embracing your body shape is the first step in not making the fashion mistakes so many women commonly make.

Your Clothes are Too Small

This fashion mistake always baffles me. Why wear clothes that are too small? Although I can come up with a few reasons, they all seem like excuses. Wearing something that doesn’t fit appropriately can keep you in a state of constant “dieting” which isn’t good for the soul or psyche. If it’s too small don’t wear it or buy it.

Thing is, wearing clothes that are too small may cause unnecessary discomfort. Not to mention, they can also be damaging to your circulation (depending on how small they are) and cause skin chaffing. Whatever your reason to wearing clothes that are too small, reconsider. Instead, try putting something on that’s just right to see how much better it feels.

Your Clothes are Too Big

When my husband and I got married, he had tons of shirts and sweaters in his closet that were sized “large”. My husband is 6’3 so it was understandable that most of his years he, and others, assumed he was a large. Then we went shopping and I asked him to try on a medium. I’ve never bought my husband a large from that day forward.

Wearing clothes that are too big makes it difficult to feel good. Yes, you may think you’re comfortable, but chances are that’s the story you’ve told yourself. Even our most comfy clothes (you know your lounging pants) make us feel better if they’re the right size.

I’m a woman. I know all about the various changes our bodies go through each month. I know there are times when we just feel “fat” and our clothes reinforce that feeling. What I’ve found is that if I wear clothes that fit and aren’t too big around those times, I feel better. You just may find you do too.

Too Much Is Going On

I’ve heard the phrase “less is more” so often it seems cliche. Thing is, nowhere is that phrase more relevant that when it comes to fashion mistakes. I’m not talking about wearing less clothes (although some situations may call for that) I’m talking about over-accessorizing.

Accessories are the finishing touch on an outfit well put together, but what if it’s too much. You’ve added the statement necklace, but then put on the statement earrings (so those two things begin to fight for attention). After that, on go the twelve rings and bracelets. I think you see where I’m going.

The finishing touch, should be the thing on your outfit that gives an extra pop, not overpower your outfit. Paring down on accessories means letting your natural beauty, fashion taste and confidence show. Yes, less, in this case, is truly more.

Outdated / Old Clothes

Last but not least, work on rotating clothes out of circulation on a regular basis. I’m all for comfy, familiar clothes, but they’re usually the ones that stay home all the time.

Creating a wardrobe that works means having timeless pieces mixed in with trendy pieces for going out. Keeping older pieces at home means looking fresh as much as possible. My system for rotating my clothes is to take something out every time I buy something. That way I have no clutter, breathing room and my clothes stay fairly up-to-date. That’s not to say I don’t have 10 – 15 year old pieces, but those were either bought to last, or never go outside.

Conclusion

Fashion mistakes are universal. We all make them. The trick is to learn and grow beyond them. Wearing clothing that fits may be all that’s needed to make a complete difference.
