Breaking: The Maxi Skirt Just Got Cool Again—Here's How to Wear It

How to wear a maxi skirt? Well, there are two looks this long-line piece most often gets tagged to. The first, of course, is boho. In its bohemian capacity, the maxi skirt sways amidst a melange of '70s accoutrements—fringed waistcoats, suede jackets and cowboy boots. But that look feels overdone. The second—the one millennials will recognise—was popularised back in the '90s. It is that of a floor-length maxi (probably black) hiding a pair of ridiculously high kickers, clumpy Buffalo Boots or scuffed Converse. Again, we've moved on.

As nostalgic and easy as it is to revisit both of these, neither of them do the current maxi skirt offering justice. Indeed, over the last few seasons, the maxi has proven itself far more than a mere branch off another trend. It has become classic, modern, infinitely wearable and quite a statement-maker, whatever the season. It's a power piece in its own right.
