Maxi skirts are the go to item to look effortlessly chic this summer. They can be matched with absolutely everything, from crop tops and thong sandals to a trendy top with chunky heels. You can steal some style ideas from Rihanna, Ciara, Kristen Cavallari, and fashion icons Rachel Zoe and Blake Lively, who have all been seen rocking the maxi skirt trend. My favorite maxi skirt is the Cascade Convertible Skirt from Free People, which I pair with a simple tank top, flip flops, and piled on bracelets. If you’re looking for more of a bargain, Forever 21 has fabulous printed maxi skirts, like the Abstract Print Longline Skirt.
