Maxi skirts and maxi dresses. They are a chapter for itself. I generally like skirts of virtually any length (unless my pants are showing, that is), and a maxi skirt is a refreshing summer alternative to all the minis that suddenly start appearing everywhere. Interestingly enough, longs skirts seem to only gain huge popularity when the weather is getting warmer – even I am not a very big fan of winter maxi skirts.
I have a few long skirts but this one has “lived” in my wardrobe for a good few years. It is one of the few remnants of my hippie phase which took place some eight years ago. None of my huge tie-dyed t-shirts survived but I always like to go back to this piece. I love the combination of colours and its surprising versatility. If I go to the seaside this year, it’s most likely that this skirt will be travelling with me.
