OK, so if you’ve been paying attention to Wardrobe, you’ll see that we have gone skirt mad lately. First it was the midi, then we covered the mini… which can mean only one thing, it must be the turn of the maxi.
The longest of the three, the maxi has had a re-birth recently and is fierce competition for the other lengths. Coming in all sorts of materials, patterns, colours, and styles, it’s hard not to love the maxi.
It covers a multitide of sins around the bum and leg area and is super versatile. It can be worn with shirts, t-shirts, crop tops and thick wooly jumpers. And although they look great with flip-flops, trainers, pumps and heels, what’s even better is that they look great with ankle boots, so you dont even have to tidy your maxi away to the back of the cupboard come October.
Plenty of celebs have been spotted out and about in maxi skirts, and even though most of them are doing the school run or nipping to their nearest Starbucks, that just shows how easy the maxi is to wear.
