When they say that fashion is a never-ending cycle, they were not kidding. The maxi skirt, which was made popular in the 1970’s, is now making a comeback — in a big way. The maxi skirt is a perfect staple item for any Fashionista's wardrobe; it’s easy to throw on and instantly make one’s ensemble bohemian chic. The simplicity of a maxi skirt is difficult to duplicate, providing high appeal to the Fashionista in need of something quick to throw on before a day at school! Maxi skirts come in different patterns, prints and materials, also making it easy to find the perfect suitor for you.

Though maxi skirts can be looked at in a dull light, this week’s Fashionista is rocking a basic black maxi skirt. However, she makes this piece interesting by spicing it up, adding a timeless brown oxford and a denim jacket to complete her ensemble. Taking a closer look, one will notice the slit in the back of her oxford top which adds a surprise element to her outfit that is also quite unique! To add to her bohemian style, she wears her hair in a loose braid and includes her favorite accessories. Due to the maxi skirt's minimalistic manner, this week’s Fashionista does a fantastic job of adding her own personal style to make this trend her own.

Depending on what type of skirt one is looking for, this particular printed skirt is great for an outlandish and eccentric vibe. Pair it with a simple black top, a pair of gladiator-esque sandals and voila! You just made a perfectly constructed bohemian outfit. It’s an easy look to pull off, plus it is super casual and comfortable!

Despite the weather change, maxi skirts are still a perfect alternative to your basic pair of jeans. Make sure to layer with the maxi skirt to add a more appropriate fall feel. Experiment with different patterns and prints as well, you never know what you may come across.
