Outfit Inspiration: Celebs in Maxi Skirts

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Like most of you out there, I often turn to movie stars, socialites and even the occasional Bravolebrity (i.e. Kyle from RHOBH or Rachel Zoe) for outfit inspiration.

I embraced maxi dresses over the summer and even wore them into the early fall with blazers. I wasn't drawn to maxi skirts until very recently and I figured they were more of a warm weather thing. (I live in Boston and the transition from summer to winter is depressingly fast.) But when I started seeing celebs pairing maxi skirts with leather jackets, I thought to myself, "why didn't I think of that?"

Well, thank you Nicole Richie and Glamour magazine for inspiring me to try new things.

I really loved how Glamour paired a red skirt with a black leather jacket but I figured I'd get more use out of a more neutral color so I ordered this one from Victoria's Secret. I love the look of this whole outfit. A very girly piece paired with something semi-unexpected to give it a little edge.
