When something is spotted parading down most of the SS/2011 international runways including Lanvin (pictured above), Jil Sander and MaxMara and the fashion world’s elites including Olivia Palermo and Kate Bosworth are seen sporting the look, you know it's sure to become a major trend, and a major trend it is. The maxi skirt has gone from zero to hero as those short shorts and mini skirts have been moved to the back of the cupboard and the maxi skirt takes the spotlight!
With a sliming silhouette, feminine and elegant vibe and effortless feel who could resist? What’s better is that this season anything goes- a print, black, sheer, pastel or bright, one thing is certain: the maxi is having a serious fashion moment! Convert this look easily from day to night with a loose tee or singlet teamed with jewelled flats for lunch dates or pop on your sky-high heels and accessories for some serious night time fun. One thing to remember, the maxi is a statement piece on it’s own so keep everything else simple. The maxi skirt is all about luxury, it is undeniably chic and irresistibly classic making it perfect for every occasion. I don't see this trend going anywhere anytime soon as it has it's feet firmly planted in it's Jimmy Choo's!
