From runway to street style, there is no questioning the popularity and dramatic allure of the maxi skirt. Stylish celebs like Kate Bosworth, Olivia Palermo, and supermodel Hilary Rhoda have shown us just how chic it can be, for day or night. The challenge is wearing it without looking overdressed or worse, like a grandma (note: we love our grandmas). The maxi is surprisingly versatile, and with the right styling pieces, you can wear it anywhere from the office to a weekend brunch to a chic party. We take three skirts and a closet full of basics to create six fabulous looks. Take note, and go long!
