Trends to Try: The Maxi Skirt

The maxi skirt was brought to us a few years ago and is still seen worn by many women everywhere. However, this year I’m over the maxi dress and my fascination is turned towards the maxi skirt. Normally I would never even attempt a maxi skirt, thinking it was to boho for my style or I would look silly covered in all that fabric. Yet as I was shopping the other weekend, I kept noticing more and more maxi skirts that I enjoyed.

With my recent purchase of flatforms (another big leap from my usual style), I realized how cute these shoes would look with the right maxi skirt. Then, alas, I found the skirt at Fossil! A coral pink pleated chiffon number, with a slip that is shorter displaying the contrast between fabrics. I knew I had to try it out, especially for the price of $30!

I paired it with a white cut-out tank and a chunky beaded necklace (and of course the flatforms)! I received many compliments on this outfit throughout the day and feel like it was a cute spring outfit.

    Hi! I know you posted this photo awhile ago, but i've been searching for that maxi skirt, to buy, for a long time!! I haven't been able to find it anywhere. Do you post your clothing for sale anywhere and if not are you interested in selling it to me?? If not, do you have any ideas as to where else I could find it or who might sell a XS/S to me??
