The maxi skirt is the break out chic look of the season. And it's my latest pick for Stanton James' style column aptly named "The Look." The online shopping site has a team of style gurus who offer style tips and picks from their online site each week. I chose the maxi this week because it's not only chic, but one of the best investment pieces of the season. The trend emerged on the runways for Fall and I spotted it all over the streets of Paris during Fashion Week. Karlie Kloss best sported the look in Lanvin's chic red-on-red combo on the runway for Spring. Designer Alber Elbaz knows a thing of two about dressing today's modern woman and creating versatile pieces to build a wardrobe - ie the recent Lanvin X H&M collab! Think casual yet chic with a t-shirt by day, elegant over a swimsuit poolside and pictured above in a monochromatic combo for the red carpet. My guess is we'll be seeing a few elegant long skirts on the Hollywood "fashion runway" this award season.
Key style points: long and lovely, cinched waist, chic, Oscar worthy.
