The Essential: Maxi Skirt

A new arrival into our wardrobes, maxi skirts took hold of our fashion thoughts in 2010 and have continued to make their way into our standard weekend wear.  An absolute essential. What is fantastic is that the more they are around, the more they become acceptable for any occasion - I've spotted a few in some pretty plush places in London, as well as  airport terminals (they are super comfy long haul flight wear), holidays and weekend drinks.

Where to buy one:

Mine *shock horror* is from Primark and cost me £4.  I wasn't sure on the style on me, but I love it.  Now I know it works I am definitely going to invest in a more expensive one.  Emma Hill's Mulberry one (above) is part of her SS12 collection - you don't quite have to stretch that far.  Here are some other options:

Zara - try this long, pleated black maxi for a quick fix you can wear anywhere for £29.99 here.
American Apparel - always good for pieces like this, take your pick of colour for £40 here.
ASOS - these guys can't do wrong for simple capsule pieces, this white number is fab for £30 here.

and two little more expensive options:
Coast - Coast aren't just for bridesmaid dresses, they make great skirts too. This one is £95 here.
See by Chloe - Much more expensive, but because it's MUCH nicer. £270 here.

Maxi skirts are definitely still in trend. I don't own one yet, but I will consider about it for spring. Looks amazing.

Thank you for these suggestions! This is an item that is currently missing in my wardrobe, but looking at these pictures and thinking (hoping...) that the summer is not too far away I think I would need one of those maxi skirt...

I would love to try the maxi skirt, but need to find one short enough for a shorty. If you know of any, let me know! xx

just got a maxi exactly like that last one and have worn it twice in a week - I feel like it'll take me right through to summer and yes, I want another one already - it just feels good to wear!
