    Here's a complilation of various looks for spring with the ever so popular maxi skirt. All pics were found via my tumblr. Some originated from bloggers or sites like chitopia. I won't post individual sources, but the pics on my blog (in my siggie) should site the source.

    Pics were pulled in reverse chronological order from jayneofalltrades.tumblr.com/archive

    Enjoy!

    dark paisley midi skirt and dark neutrals- check your thrift store for below the knee dresses. if you find something a little to large, don't fret just add a belt.:

    crop tops and maxi skirts are great for transitioning to summer. crops tops are NOT for everyone though. :look:

    [​IMG]

    polkadots work well with pastels and other solids:

    [​IMG]

    pair bold skirts with a white top for more balance

    [​IMG]

    she also adds heels the right way (which is difficult for long casual skirts/dresses)
    [​IMG]

    high-low / mullet skirt. pick the right shoe! this actually looks like a diy wrap skirt which is doable for a beginner:

    [​IMG]

    all black look, great a evening out for a nightcap:

    I love this high-low midi. paired perfectly with comfortable grey sandals. great for an afternoon at the museum and a picnic in the city park. :grin:

    [​IMG]

    spruce up that white tee with a flowy spring yellow

    [​IMG]

    combine the crochet trend with the maxi trend for a boho look:
    [​IMG]

    not your grandma's separates :lol:
    [​IMG]

    mixing prints, i would have personally chosen the same color family but despite that this is not too bad:

    tie a button up shirt for a faux crop top:
    [​IMG]

    how to do volume. (the print in the top is horrible) you could easily by some wax print and have this simple skirt made. check with the tailor 1st because this is A LOT of yardage:
    [​IMG]

    chiffon done for everyday. please don't leave your house in knickers and a see through skirt if you are not walking the runway. this mini skirt looks great underneath the maxi.
    [​IMG]

    i think this midi is too far under her boobs but i like the idea. maybe a wider belt would create more waist???
    [​IMG]

    beachwear maybe

    perfect cotton spandex skirt

    this is a diy, love how she paired a mini dress with a maxi skirt- genius
    [​IMG]

    opt for a midi and wear a bold shoe
    [​IMG]

    with a blazer, ditch the stole for the warmer weather and wear a cute shirt so you can take the blazer off if you need to

    So I have to go get myself a big skirt. I like the see through one. Maybe I can convince my mom to make me one and just wear itOn top of what I already own

    This thread is making me regret not placing a maxi skirt or two in my cart in my last F21 order :(, they have quite a number. I can definitely do crop tops but too slutty and kinda gross to do with pants lol but a maxi skirt is a really cute idea to pair with a crop...

    Omg I'm drooling. So cute!!

    When I was home over the holidays I raided my moms closet of work clothes she used to wear 15 years ago. Found a few maxi skirts(some had matching tops *shutter* lol). Anyone have ideas what I can wear with them?

    Very nice!

    I think like the pictures posted, these skirts would look great balanced with a cute fitted t shirt or tank top (solid colored) . I like the idea of wearing them either with cropped denim jacket or even a blazer as a layering piece. About how long do your skirts come?

    I have realized even with the maxi skirt, one has to make sure the hem is flattering for the height of someone. For example, I like the really long almost floor skimming maxi skirts, not the one's that come up to my calf. They seem to make me look stumpy.

    I like maxies both dresses and skirts with flat sandals. But I am sure there may be some who wear heeled and wedged sandals with them.

    i like really long maxis that cover your feet but it's so hard to find any that fit me right. I'm 5'7 with really long legs...so they always look like high waters on me :( Any tall ladies that wear maxis? Where do you get them?
