Fashion File: Still Loving Maxi Skirts

I once thought being seen in a maxi skirt was only acceptable if you were a devout Mennonite or a Pentecostal woman.  I was surprised to see them in lots of style forecasts a few years back and now it appears they are here to stay.   In fact, I've grown to love this universally flattering garment.  However you define your style and whatever occasion you're dressing for, there's a maxi waiting to work it's magic on you.  For work or other nice occasions, opt to go with a more structured maxi:

Love this look?  Here's a similar casual option, and also a similar midi version.  Pair a structured maxi with a crop top for a night out:

 Polyester maxis are versatile.  To me they're that "in between" style where you easily dress them up or down based on your mood.  For a more put-together look, pair the skirt with heels and a cool leather jacket:

Or, dress it down by pairing this maxi with sandals and a tank:

Sporting a maxi is also great for casual situations.  Running errands, relaxing with friends on the weekends, or traveling calls for a linen or cotton relaxed look:

...and here's my own take on the maxi skirt:

I wore this Zara floral number this past weekend in the Hamptons. It's supposed to be a "midi" skirt, but even in heels it looks like more of a maxi on me.  Oops!  #shortpeopleproblems.  I wore it with these sunnies, this tank, and these heels.  That hair tie around my wrist is très chic, no?

What's your favorite maxi style?
