When you're young, a thought that often comes to mind is how short can I get away with it? Skirts, tops, shorts, dresses — you name it and we have probably worn it. That is why I am so glad that length is finally being worked back into our wardrobes again! Maxi everything is the new mini skirt, so put that denim Abercrombie & Fitch skirt that is probably only a few inches long in the donation box and head to your nearest H&M or Urban Outfitters to indulge in a few new items.
This Fashionista is a perfect illustration that those new items in your closet should be for the spring and summer, even fall if you want to get the greatest use out of them. Her cobalt blue maxi skirt is a necessary item for every Fashionista out there and can be found in a variety of stores at high and low price ranges. Rachel Zoe designed a skirt similar to the one in the photo, but stores like MANGO also carry similar styles at about half the cost. Maxi skirts can be paired with a variety of tops like a fitted long sleeve if it’s cooler outside, or a cropped T-shirt which brings me to my next obsession. You don’t need a Victoria’s Secret body to pull these tops off — pair it with something high-waisted like this Fashionista has done to show off minimal midriff and keep the look classy. I also love that the cropped T-shirts are now featuring ties at the bottom giving those who wear them a very feminine touch.
Throw your hair back in a bun to keep the look simple and top it all off with a patterned scarf and a pair of leather sandals or platform wedges. Jeffery Campbell has a variety of heights and styles for the perfect bohemian look. Maxi skirts are warm, flowy, comfortable and fashionable. I don’t think you could really ask for anything more in a piece of clothing.
