I recently bought a caramel colored maxi skirt, a piece of clothing I now simply cannot live without. Whilst I didn't pay an arm and a leg for it (sportsgirl all the way :), you would never know it!!
In my mind, the maxi is here to stay, due to the fact that this simple long piece of material is statement-making as well as effortless.
A new trend in the way of the maxi is also emerging for this Summer season, and it is the Sheer Maxi. Pioneered by the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen and Abbey Lee Kershaw as well as fashion houses Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and Chloe, the sheer maxi trend is going to see it though this summer, with the transparency showing the perfect amount of skin, but not too much.
