Trends can be found evolving from many different styles and even through the economy. Lengths of skirts were one of those trends. If the economy was booming, the hemlines went up, leading to the mini skirt. During the down times of the economy is when the hemlines went back low. That process is not used as often anymore now that fashion is being influenced in more ways than just the health of our country. Maxi skirts used to be known as a part of a boho-chic or hippie style, but those days are coming to a close. They aren’t completely ruled out of that box but they can be seen on the most fashion forward and chic Fashionistas. You can find maxis in many different styles, patterns and colors. High-waisted maxi skirts seem to be making more of an appearance in the fashion world lately. They help even the most fun-sized Fashionistas look taller and slimmer.
Just like jeans and boots, maxi skirts can be your best friend when it comes to transitioning into the colder weather. For the summer, they look best paired with a tank and strappy sandals. Now that it is getting a little cooler, maxis look great with a sweater and a scarf. Many people are worried that wearing a maxi skirt with a loose shirt can make you lose your shape and feel bulky. This Fashionista proves that theory very wrong. Pairing her floral maxi with a belt gives her possibly shapeless outfit no hope for hiding her waist. The color scheme that she has going on is perfect for fall. The warm colors in the skirt paired with the chestnut belt really pops next to the winter white sweater top.
You can find maxi skirts and their many variations in almost any clothing store now. For those Fashionistas that are hesitant to try the long and lengthy skirt, check out Target or H&M to find an inexpensive one that won’t leave you feeling worried about buying an item that you’re not fully committed to yet. It’s hard not to love the maxi though, so the hesitation should fade soon. They can be your go-to piece when trying to be casual and comfy for those long days in class they’re so stylish, too.
