It should be a law that every woman owns a fitted jersey black maxi skirt. You can wear it with everything! From a chunky sweater to a glitzy white button-up as seen here. It is a basic, with consistent trend perfection.

Well, we already know florals are a huge trend for summer, but a floral maxi skirt is taking this trend into style overdrive. Throw one on with a neutral top and some chic flats and you’ve got yourself the perfect daytime summer look.


Take a walk on the wild side with an animal print maxi dress! Be warned: head-to-toe animal print is only for the daring. Whether you pair with sandals and aviators in the summer or a fur vest and bright baubles in the winter, you will be turning heads wherever you go.


The pleated maxi skirt might be our favourite take on this trend. It is understated, elegant and moves beautifully when you walk. Can we take one in every colour?
