Trend to Try: Maxi Skirts

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!

I like this look but it would have looked more interesting and current with a maxi skirt. I’d really love to see more of that in the blog. Therea re some great maxi skirts on eBay:

You have some really nice maxis. I like the 2 Rachel Pally maxis and the Tie Dye silk. Personally I like using the maxis as part of a boho style.

a maxi skirt that hugs the hips/butt is actually alluring. I brings focus to the movement of the hips,since people don’t see your legs; hip movement is very sexy,you know.

I love maxi skirts too but my butt and hips may be too large for them. LOL!!
