5 Reasons Everyone Needs a Maxi Skirt this Spring!

Hi everyone – having procrastinated a little before buying this skirt, especially as it’s quite dark so not necessarily a Spring colour it has even turned into my “goto” skirt for this season… find out why!

Version 2

5 Reasons Everyone Needs a Maxi Skirt for Spring:

1 Perfect for hiding pale legs without having to wear stockings

2. Keep legs warm when its a little colder

3. It will make you look taller when worn with a crop top

4. They can be both dressed up for a party, dressed down for casual or simply teamed up with a blazer for the office.

5. Maxi skirts are a HOT trend this season.

It’s fun to team up with different looks – when using the above bag I also often wear bright red converse for added effect – if I had a business meeting of course the converse would be replaced with pumps.

Note the cropped t-shirt. If you wear a long skirt like this it’s important to keep the top cropped giving a nice elongated effect.

Here a few other tops that would work fab with this skirt:

  1. Hi Laurie, Thanks so much for your lovely comment – am blushing now 😉 Have a fab day and lots of fun with your skirt – am sure you’ll find it just as useful as I have.

  2. This is a very good look. Thanks for encouraging me as I have a bright pink long skirt. I will get it out. I just love the feeling of a long skirt. This metallic pleated example is perfect.
    PS the “drawback” of meeting you is that now I have found another nice person with a wondeful blog to follow and I have so little time…..
