Oh La La, Maxi Overload

The maxi really made its presence known this season, appearing in closets of even those who had sworn off the flowy frocks. As opposed to the colorful, Miami-esque maxis of the past we’ve been presented with a whole new take on the long, elegant skirts and dresses this season and they can be worn in countless ways.  The best thing about it – retailers are really taking cues from the runway and these skirts and dresses are much more flattering.  One thing to be careful of as you wear your maxi this season is to be very conscious of what you pair it with.  A long maxi skirt looks best with a well fit top.  Though we love the loose sheer look, it would be ill advised to grab one, tuck it in, and go about your day.  You’ll be adding much more bulk than you need to.  There is something enchanting about the maxi so keep that in mind when pairing it with other pieces.

Here are some of our favorites (mouse-over for buying information)
