These long skirts have been a continual runway favourite, and for good reason.
For the FW18 collection, Moon Young Hee created a modern outfit by pairing a deep navy maxi with a tailored, structured white shirt, while Chanel played with florals and paired the skirt with a pink cropped top to keep the look feminine. Giambattista Valli, true to his form, brought drama by adding a black sequined cape for a monochromatic and powerful outfit.
Designers have migrated the maxi skirt, classically worn in the summer season, into winter because of its versatility. Whether you’re making it out of colourful fabrics like Etro and Mary Katrantzou or going for a sleek silhouette like The Row or Balmain, maxi skirts can be layered over boots for cold weather or sandals for eternal sunshine, such likes ours. Dependent upon the materials used, they can actually keep you warm too. A stylish and feminine go-to over pants or jeans. In addition, the skirts also add length to your lower torso and help elongate your stature. After all, who doesn’t want to look taller?
From pleats to fun, printed skirts, here are our picks to get you looking modest yet chic.
