Trend Alert: Maxi Skirt

The long boho-chic skirt has been around for some time, made popular by style setters in the 70’s. Something about it seemed so easy, breezy, cool, so laissez-faire. The maxi skirt is headed straight for the “new classics” territory. They have the potential to supplant your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans to be the piece you grab in your closet when you’re stumped about what to wear. They work for date night, errands, brunch, and even summer cocktail parties. Grab a basic version in black or grey.

Every women of any shape and size can wear a maxi. It makes every woman look leaner and a petite woman look taller. Try pairing your maxi with a fitted blazer and a pair of flat sandals. Wear some fun jewelry and a basic tee and you’re good to go. I found some great, inexpensive ones at Old Navy and Marshalls. You can also access ShopBop, through our website on, and get free shipping for a really fun maxi.

Be creative and make it fun!

    I’ve loved the maxi skirt and dresses for ever and plan to make my black skirt my go-to skirt for our upcoming trip to Europe. Great idea of the fitted jacket with the skirt – it’s just what I need. Thanks!
