Long, flowy maxi dresses have been dominating for a few seasons now so it was inevitable that the maxi skirt would follow! My love of the long skirt was re-ignited at the Vena Cava Spring 2009 show which featured several truly fantastic floor-grazing styles and was enhanced when City star Olivia Palermo stepped out in a stunning maxi style from Jenni Kayne. The maxi skirt is absolutely perfect for a warm spring day where it’s too cold for short or a leg-baring skirt but a little too warm for pants. I especially love the bohemian, hippie-esque vibe of this style.
There are so many ways to interpret this style to make it work for you. You can update it and give it an edge with a sexy tee or cropped vest, you can take it the boho-route and pair with with a floaty top, you can keep it basic with a simple tank or give it a fashion-forward kick with a more embellished style. Just have fun with it and make it work for you!
