Fall 2010 Trend: Maxi Skirts

MAXI SKIRTS. Skirt length has grown, again. I am all for maxi dresses in the summer, and so ready to try maxi skirts this fall. (I have been looking for a lace velvety one with a certain vibe of nostalgia, hm hard to find eh?) Actually this sudden thought just hit me, no one knows if its a maxi skirt or maxi dress if you wear it underneath a sweater right? Anyways there are lots of styles brought into play, for starters they will look great with baggy and oversized sweaters. Don't you just love how fluid they are?

PLEATS, RUFFLES AND FRILLS. (Left to rightASOS BLACK Laser Cut Petal Maxi Skirt, I think it's more like origami than petals, loves it. Long Pleated Skirt in light green and Long Skirt with Frills in grey both from Zara. 

PRINTS. (From top) Premium Floral Frill Skirt from Topshop, pretty similar to the RL one; Rachel Pally Long Full Skirt from Shopbop.

PLAY ON MATERIALS. (Left to right) Lace Maxi Skirt F21; Minkpink Crushed Velvet Maxi Skirt from ASOS, that ensemble looks great by the way; Opening Ceremony Silk Overlay Skirt in navy, an alternative from all that leg covering.


  1. Hi, really interesting post: long skirts are coming back after longtime and it will be a pleasure to wear them on for a bobochic or dark lady look.
    Love the free-flowing of them, furthermore top and skirt have to be balanced: on the runways almost everything looks good but on a normal size this combo can appear to be odd. Have fun, ciao!

  2. Thanks for visiting. =) I agree on a normal size this combo might look weird, definitely with heels though then the silhouette will be lengthened.
