The Maxi Skirt

Layered tulle Paget skirt
It's official: the maxi skirt is the new it silhouette for spring. J.Crew's gorgeous wedding skirt has been out for a while but it was the sight of Kate Bosworth in a stunning mint green Jil Sander number that has pushed the maxi skirt into the spotlight. I can't wait to test out this fresh shape for spring and summer! What's your take on the trend?

P.S. Don't forget to enter the January sponsorship giveaway! The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve.

I want to embrace the maxi look but I've never been able to make it work on my 5'3 frame, I just end up feeling frumpy. I will have to enjoy the maxi skirt from afar!

The only problem with the maxi skirt is that unless you are 6 foot + you end up with a maxi dress!!

I actually just purchased a maxi "skirt" because I couldn't part with the gorgeous green white and blue pattern. It came with a black belt - and it's now my new tube top belted maxi dress! No joke...

i love the idea of the maxi skit. just not sure if it would work on my frame. also i feel like the skirt is much more versatile than the dress (as far as making it work for a shorter frame).

I am loving the long skirts! I thought about putting my bridesmaids in them with a chic silk top or sequin blouse for the wedding... kinda fabulous, right?
