Here is an instant update for you straight from the runway! If you’re somewhat bored of maxis and need a reason to get back into wearing your old maxi then take a tip from these labels: Alberta Ferretti, Lanvin, Marc Jacobs and Jil Sander. These Designers all showcased new ways to rock a maxi skirt for Spring 2011.
Marc Jacobs takes the 70s vibe to greater heights with a gypsy blouse and corsage. If you’re into vintage inspired clothes, this is perfect for you. A fluid maxi from American Apparel with platform heels would have you stealing the show! Accessoring your hair with a corsage is in at the moment, take advantage with your maxi!
My personal favourite is Lanvin’s classic take on the maxi-trend-updater. A body suit paired with a classic waist belt. A cinch at the waist adds a slimming effect. It’s the perfect fit for a night out! If you’re not comfortable with a body suit, opt for a tank top instead to re-create Lanvin.
Channel your inner street style and pair a maxi with knit top just like Alberta Ferretti in this floral maxi skirt. Wedges are best-suited here. Mango and H&M are your go-to stops. A tricky, yet arguably easy way to wear a maxi this season is from Jil Sander. Quite simply you’ll need a T-shirt to snag this catwalk look.
Stay in the “Hit List” is to wear a maxi that suits the frame of your body with heels you can literally walk in. Play with each style but stick to what works for you! Whether it’s a bit of Lanvin mixed with Marc Jacobs, having fashion fun with your maxi is the only way to be catwalk worthy in this trend du jour!
