TOP FALL 2010 TRENDS: #8 THE MAXI-SKIRT

The Maxi-skirt has been inching it’s way to a comeback for several seasons and many have been seen this Spring on the streets of Paris and London.  I first spotted the trend in Paris where the chic were wearing maxi skirts with blazers, oversized sweaters and fur hats.  Soft and full skirts were worn with tailored pieces while tailored skirts were accented with soft blouses and oversized grandpa sweaters.

The same trend was seen on the Fall runways and will translate within all markets to some degree.  The Junior market most likely will not pick up on this trend.  However, their interpretation will be to update the spring maxi-dress into a new fall version with color and textile differences.

What I personally love about this trend is the drama that goes into wearing a maxi-skirt.  Whenever I wear one of mine, I always tend to have a higher sense of self about me.  I walk stronger and I move with grace and style.  The longer the skirt the better, but don’t mistake this skirt with the Full Bohemian skirt of the past, this one is more streamline and soft.

Two variations were seen in the maxi:  Straight/Fitted styles and Lightweight/Full versions.


STRAIGHT/FITTED

Straight Maxi’s were seen in all fabrications and were mostly paired with blazers and jackets, oversized vests and blouses.  Tailoring and fit is key to this silhouette.

LIGHTWEIGHT/FULL

This style will be seen more in the Contemporary market as they are a bit more versatile and can be worn from day to night.  Pair them with chunky knitwear, architectural blazers and coats adding textures and colors as layers.
