The Maxi Skirt: How To Wear It Now & Later

Share

Great trends come and go, but the maxi skirt will forever hold a special place in our hearts (and closets). It’s incredibly comfortable, comes in a range of price points and, perhaps most importantly, looks great on a variety of body types. And because the style is officially back—and chicer than ever—we think it’s a wise choice to invest in the easy-breezy silhouette ASAP. Here, a few of our favorite maxi skirts and a handful of stylish ways to wear them now and later.
