Maxi

The maxi skirt is here to stay. So do you need to give your micro miniskirts away to charity? Well, yes, if you really want to be a fashionista and go by the trends visible on the catwalk. Designer brands such as Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Donna Karan, Miu Miu have launched collections for both day and night.

Long, long floor skimming maxis are reminiscent more of a summer beach look. The typical imagery of a beautiful blonde in a chiffon print skirt with the balmy breeze on her face makes a perfect picture to sell a holiday destination. But in winter too, most designers have the maxi skirt as an option. With a more edgy look as they have teamed the skirts with angle high boots rather than strappy stilettos. Michael Kors white fish tail skirt in cashmere is very desirable for the season. So is Missoni’s peach and silver — gold metallic one. Margherita Missoni, heiress to the Missoni Empire was pictured wearing a high waisted plain navy blue number. With her steel, convex abs she looked stunning in a relaxed Avant-garde sort of way. Erdem’s printed skirt is wonderful to pair with a plain black round neck tee. Alberta Ferretti’s multi-layered tulle in white will make you feel like Cinderella. Very feminine and statement-making if you are in the mood to evoke the old world charm. The good thing about a maxi skirt though is that they can be dressed up or down based on the occasion. A sparkly, glitzy, sequined top with a black organza or silk skirt for a special evening event. A printed T-shirt and a pale skirt as a laidback option. A denim or leather, biker jackets can be thrown on to give the grunge New Age look. The combination of glam and street can be achieved quite effortlessly with a maxi skirt. Footwear too could range from Ugg-type boots, gladiator sandals to crystal encrusted heels depending on the time and weather.

To get the bohemian lux look, the Asos tattoo print white silk skirt is perfect. Nothing is more appealing than that effortless glamour, the ability to achieve an integrated and effective look without trying too hard. And with a long skirt, this is easy to achieve. Observe dancers. Flamenco dancers in particular. They always wear these skirts. There is no need to over-accessorize. Just minimal works perfectly.
