Key Item: Maxi Skirt


I am the number one fan of MAXI skirt, since they give our outfits the right dose of femininity
and allow us to sport a BOHO style á la Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen following the footsteps of the KING of Boho Marc Jacobs.
The maxi skirt is a versatile piece, you can perfectly wear it with any style and stand out from the crowd so effortlessly, that you can even wear it when you are just heading to pick up your favorite fashion magazine (mine are Cosmopolitan and Elle).


Eventhough this fall the runways are full with an exquisite collection of  maxi skirts, we did not have the chance to see them in action very often, that is to say its shortage in the street style scene. Like Coco Chanel said once ''A fashion that does not reach the streets is not a fashion''.

It might be because it's kind of ticklish. In other words the maxi skirt could sometimes be a little bit awkward to carry out, especially if you are in a hurry, and a pair of jeans is the immediate shortcut.

Let us scrutinize some looks of this fall/winter runways, and uncover the best ideas and clues, to start flaunting our folksy and hippie side.

The Poncho skirt
The poncho is turned into a maxi skirt, made in warm fabrics, it's the best ally against the cold.


All that glitters is the skirt
