Style

Zero time, Max style

I know, I know. This is the second picture of Olivia Palermo I’ve used this week. I promise I’m not stalking her (although she is something of a style crush). But you’ve got to admit that she looks good and I imagine, that some of you thought it was impossible to look good in a maxi skirt. Like a Hippie, certainly. Like a Wag, most definitely. Like a Boho Sloane, um, yup, them too. But, it’s also possible to look chic. I also wanted to show you that you don’t have to be tall to wear a maxi. Olivia is, like me, just shy of 5’5, so I’m using her as proof that fears over your height shouldn’t prevent you from wearing one.

Yes, maxi skirts drag along the ground picking up all the dirt from the pavement, but they can also look pretty darn fabulous, keep you cool in the (wishful thinking alert) heat and are comfortable (yes!) to wear. More versatile than the maxi-dress, you can slip on a t-shirt and a jacket, or even a loose sweater and off you go. Yes, you have to be careful with what you wear them with, if you want to avoid all the above connotations, so just team with a classic white t-shirt and a to-die-for jacket and you’re good to go…
