When it comes to Olivia Palermo, one thing is certain — the girl is a styling genius. Part of that may just be the fact that she knows how to work and rework her wardrobe, fashioning cool, then cooler combinations with essentially the same pieces. Case in point: Olivia gave her signature spin to a breezy Summer maxiskirt, reminding us that this isn't the first time the fashion pro's pulled off an impressive styling trick with a maxiskirt. In fact, we've spied Olivia mixing up her longer skirts with key pieces for a number of new looks — just click through to see her outfit the maxi five different ways, then shop your favorite styles.
A flash of skin in small doses is never a bad thing — and this season's wispy, ultra-feminine sheer maxi skirt is a surefire way to work the see-through trend without being, well, scandalous. This Rag & Bone pleated silk maxi skirt ($450) is a seemingly tricky investment piece but one that, when carefully styled, can deliver endless options through every season. For those of you ready to show some skin this Spring, here are five ways to wear the barely there sheer maxi skirt.
I absolutely adore this look from Fab reader simpleness — it's the perfect example of how to make the most of your chic Spring pieces in less-than-Spring weather. She started with a heather gray maxi skirt, and added cozy layers via a long-sleeved black tee and olive military-inspired jacket. Then, she piled on the accessories — a brown braided belt, chunky knit scarf, and a pair of flat brown boots. I love how wonderfully each piece works together, and can be switched up come Spring!

With back-to-back blizzards underway, New York City is basically blanketed with snow — but Fab reader gm2239 is hell-bent on staying chic, no matter how low the temperature. She wore a city-chic striped maxiskirt, layered with a cozy knit sweater and glamorous J.Crew fur stole ($70, originally $98). With a slouchy hobo bag and thick-soled shoes, she's ready to brave the Winter weather in style.
Congrats to gm2239!

This Spring 09 we fell in love with a long floral maxi skirt and slouchy cotton tank from designer Jenni Kayne. We find this look casual and elegant and especially attractive as it would work on a variety of body types and on women of all ages. Pair a long skirt with a masculine top in the winter and with a thin tank in the summer and you'll be chic and sophisticated. Some of our favorite examples, above.

Today is the first official day of Fall, and for the next couple weeks we are going to count down our 10 Fall Essentials. So often friends and fams ask us what's new and exciting for the season. We realize fashion can be overwhelming, and we're happy to dwindle it down to 10 fantastic new additions that we're personally coveting and you should too.
I've already worn this skirt with a sexy nude tank top and layered jewelry; I also wore a cardi to add to the mellow vibe. I'm also thinking it would be cute with moccasin boots, chunky knit sweaters, and a cropped leather jacket. The possibilities are endless for this James Perse Maxi Skirt ($175).
