One of my favorite trends to move into fall and winter is the maxi skirt. After some skepticism and a long search, I bought a rust-red maxi skirt from Nordstrom. I thought my height (5'4) wouldn't work with the skirt but surprisingly a knit maxi skirt is flattering and above all comfortable.
When I wear this thing it's like I'm wearing fancy pajama pants. I kind of like that.
And I loved that it's one of those things in my closet that I will be able to wear all-year round.
It's perfect with wedges in the summer and then flats and boots in the fall and winter. With some knee high socks or leggings underneath, I'm sure I'll be rocking this skirt well past November.
I wear it with a shirt tucked in and a belt, or for a little more casual look, a loose blouse layered over. The knit keeps the skirt from looking a little more fitted and ultimately a little more flattering than perhaps a crepe or long pleated skirt would.
Do you have something in your closet that works all year? And have you given into the maxi skirt trend? You'll thank me if you do :)
p.s. i just watched the movie "Halloween" with the husband. I think I'm still scared. I could barely handle the movie "Signs"... "Halloween" was a little beyond that. (but I was digging the 1970s fashion.)
