Channel your inner 70's style goddess with this season’s effortless trend: the ankle grazing maxi skirt. The trend has been a long time coming, as it has been kicking around since last fall when Charlotte Ronson and Marc Jacobs featured them on their runways. However, the maxi has been given another shot this season, as designers breathe new life to the minimalist garment in easy summer fabrics like flowy chiffon an breezy silk.
To work this trend into your own closet, try out a more demure, feminine look by opting for a maxi skirt in a soft pastel or off-white and in a fabric like jersey. Add a soft printed tank for muggy summer days and complete the look with a straw hat fedora.
If you’re feeling bold, try a maxi in a pop of color or a print, like tribal or floral. Tuck in a contrasting blouse and slip into a pair of platform sandals.
You don’t have to revert to the classic bohemian chic to master this trend. If you’re into an edgier vibe simply nab a maxi in a darker color, like burgundy or forest green.
Pair it with a white tee and denim jacket and top it all off with layers of draped chained necklaces for an easy day look. For nighttime, swap your denim jacket for a leather one.
