Style editor Aislinn Coffey exalts the versatility of the must-have maxi skirt …
From Gabriela Hearst’s dramatic white pleated floor-sweeping skirts to Tory Burch’s easy plaid, striped and burlap numbers, maxis are everywhere this summer. Style with a simple top, corset or tank and let the skirt do the talking. A maxi can be worn in just about any temperature, so cost per wear, this trend is a good transeasonal investment. Wear with cashmere and leather knee-high boots in winter, T-shirt and sandals in summer.
