What To Wear

5 maxi skirts with style to the max

We heart these long, flowy and feminine skirts ‘cause they’re super flattering (and create the illusion that you’re a few inches taller than you actually are). Bonus: Mom can’t complain that your skirt is too short to wear out of the house!


The lace adds a vintage and ladylike appeal to this delicate maxi. Pair with a graphic tee or crop top to toughen it up.
