Style Inspiration : Maxi Skirts

As the days fly by, I find myself starting to think more and more about what I'll be wearing this autumn. (And with temperatures yesterday hitting 40 °C, I'm really looking forward to the cooler weather!) I LOVE the concept of maxi skirts for transition seasons, although as a vertically challenged human, finding a skirt that fits beautifully without the need for drastic tailoring is very trying indeed! I thought I'd share some of the images that I've spotted on Pinterest that have been inspiring me.

I love the contrast between the soft white skirt and the typical autumnal plaid shirt, and the belt just ties it all together beautifully.

I need this skirt in my life!

This image makes me want to wear my metallic skirt in the daytime - the biker jacket gives this glam look just the right amount of edge.

Gorgeous colour blocking!

A stunning look for those warmer days - just add a cardigan for the chilly mornings.

Black maxi skirt, white button-down and a grey cardigan - perfection.

All images can be found on my Pinterest boards.


  1. That pink skirt is to-die-for! And the blue ombre maxi... be still, my beating heart! I found the most amazing orange maxi skirt at Forever New about two seasons back, and much to my sadness, opted not to buy it. After thinking about it non-stop for the next two weeks, I finally went back to buy it, but it was too late. Almost two years later and I still think of that skirt :( So, if anyone sees a gorgeous pleated orangey-coral skirt anywhere...

  2. The blue ombre is amazing!
