Trendspotting: Bold Maxi Skirts
The maxi skirt look is in full swing. fashionjuice just wrote an article about the maxi skirt trend, and classytrash covered this item last season. However, a new “sub-trend” has emerged from this en vogue fashion item: the bold maxi skirt. Floor-sweeping and strikingly-colored, the bold maxi skirt is a sure way to make a grand entrance.
Eclectic fashionista, slicari, goes for a funky and anachronistic look. She fearlessly pairs a loose leopard-print shirt with a droopy wool maxi skirt in vibrant purple. She could have kept her accessories minimal, but instead, chooses to amp things up with a turquoise cross pendant, fringed clutch purse, and “borrowed from the boys” fedora.
2. $5 dress
New Chictopian member, tobeworn, works her bold maxi skirt into a fresh, “happy go lucky” ensemble. Her long Missoni-esque blue and white dress gets a little bit of zing with a wide scarlet belt. Naturally-styled tresses and a practical leather bag make this an outfit that’s both on-trend and comfortable.
3. Icon Shirt
Did someone say fierce? Style Icon, paxie_aiza, wears vintage pieces in a distinctly-modern way. She combines a brilliant red flared skirt with a movie star-printed button-down shirt (ending up looking like quite the celebrity herself!). A crisp white fedora and shiny black pumps complete the look.
Style Icon, StylePantry resembles a fashionable young flower child of the 70’s. Her bright turquoise maxi dress gets a boost of added contrast via red trimmings and a pair of enormous red and yellow earrings. She stays true to her signature style element, piling on loads of shiny silver bangles.
Wherever you live, be it the warm beaches of California or the frigged mountains of the Netherlands, you can’t make a mistake with bold maxi skirts. Breezy or cozy, sleek or full, this nifty article of clothing possesses a chameleon-like adaptability.
