Here's the long and short of it, ladies...the maxi skirt is here to stay, so start experimenting. Long skirts are truly back this season, making an appearance in the striped floor-length body con dresses popular after A/W shows. Team yours with chunky boots and a tough jacket for attitude and style.
Ladies maxi skirt
One thing that's fresh is that the ladies long skirt is no longer the frumpy and lumpy thing it once was. This is sleek, trailed to the ground to look seamless and endless. Try a black maxi skirt with loose layers and long necklaces for a sophisticated edge to your dressing.
White maxi skirt
A lot of this new found sexiness is from the fabric - the jersey maxi skirt is the look du jour and it clings to the body's natural curves to create an easy, flattering silhouette. Even a white maxi skirt, teamed with a simple cream blouse and layered with shearling and scarves, screams 'cool' rather than 'calamity'.
