Oh how much I love that Alberta Ferretti skirt! Maxi skirts have been something I’ve not shown much interest in during the past few seasons, but I’m singing a different tune of late. I had way too many maxi dresses in my closet, only waiting to be worn at the brink of summer, and I decided to give one of them an edgy, winter twist , recently, by wearing it like a skirt — with a fitted top, leather jacket, tights, ankle booties, and a scarf. They also look fantastic paired with denim jackets, blazers, slouchy knits, and tucked-in blouses cinched with a belt. The fact that maxi skirts come in so many different silhouettes — straight/narrow, fishtail, and my personal favorite, the long, flowing, voluminous ones à la Lanvin — is really awesome because it makes it that much easier to find something that flatters you. Come summer, I’m really looking forward to buying something with a subtle sheer or a slit. Meanwhile, here are a couple maxi skirts, for $115 and under, that caught my eye:
So, are maxi skirts your thing?
