Hot & happening: maxi skirts

by insightandout

Thanks to the Olsen twins the maxi skirt was re-introduced circa 2004. And although the fashion world was sceptic of their boho way of dressing at first, the maxi skirt was put back on the map and so was the Olsen twins’ status as fashion icons.

Not familiar with the maxi skirt? Keep it simple with a plain black skirt, A-line, pleated, whatever you like.

When you’re more of a daredevil try a maxi skirt in a bright colour or with an ethnic print. But beware: less is more. So combine your bold skirt with a simple tank top or blouse.
