At the swiish office, we love us a maxi skirt. Perfect year round with strappy sandals and a plain tee in summer or ankle boots and a blazer in winter, you can channel your inner boho goddess through to your chic NYC fashionista. But guess what? The maxi skirt has had a makeover. Yup. Introducing the split maxi skirt, which shows enough leg to look sexy yet still leaves a little to the imagination. We adore this style because it gives the illusion of a classic look (with its length) whilst still showing off all your hard work from the gym.
Styling the split maxi skirt is easy; there are so many possibilities to dress it up or down. We recommend sticking to a high-waisted cut; adding a fitted tank and a chunky necklace to finish it off. Match it with some pumps and you’re ready for a night out. While a black version is a must-have given its versatility, try also branching out into different colours such as neutrals, navy or charcoal. We also love this skirt in pastel colours, matched with a white tee and ballet flats.
You can find split maxi skirts online at ASOS, Topshop or The Iconic, or in store at Sportsgirl, Witchery and Bardot. There’s nothing greater then an invention that makes your legs look thinner, longer and sexier – mix it with heels and your legs will look flawless.
