Miss Galino said...

seems like typical in-your-face fierce and aggressive sexiness is giving way to femininity (which is, in essence, sexy all by itself).

embracing the trend with all eight of my hands :)

Gia said...

I have lots of maxi dresses but almost no maxi skirts...I'm definitely up for more of those.

Mary said...

Oo, so lovely!

Delightful Bitefuls

Belle de Ville said...

Yes...the new long length must be a sign of a double dip recession. Like the maxi dresses of seasons past, these long skirts cover up a world of sins. I'd buy one.

I love the orange, yellow and green colours. Your post as complete as always!

Michael St. James said...

Haute World said...

Loving the maxi skirts! I'm glad there's a revival as I've had more opportunities to wear a black silk one I have. Adore the Galliano look and the Rick Owens dress is on my watch list when the sales start later this month ;-)

Winnie said...

I am far too short to get away with wearing such long maxi skirts, what a shame but these are really lovely!

THESTREETFASHION5XPRO said...

Amaaaziiing! Gorgeous post!!!

NGS said...

I don't usually do long skirts or dresses since they make me feel a bit overwhelmed, but that Louis Vuitton is perfect!!

Diana Mieczan said...

The Louis Vuitton look so beautiful and stylish...Those pieces are so beautiful:)
Kisses my dear!

Katie said...

Loving the longer skirts!

I absolutely love and want the entire Dries Van Noten outfit.

HiFashion said...

I love these. Long skirts aren't usually that flattering but these are wonderful. I love the Louis Vuitton and Tommy Hilfiger ones.

Tights Lover said...

You put the best one right at the top, in my opinion. The Celine skirt is gorgeous!

Susan said...

just below the knee: that's my favorite!

Averill said...

I love a slim skirt that ends up below the knee -- so flattering! Long is also great, especially in the summer with flat sandals and a thin tank top.

Grace said...

I think modesty has a certain elegance to it. That Pucci maxi skirt is so gorgeous!

Anna said...

Over the knee skirts can be very flattering if worn with the right top. My favourites here are cerruti & Fendi - so fab!

Le Sigh of a Fashionista said...

Beautiful skirts...I wish I was taller so I could pull this look off.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I have been obsessed with long skirts this summer so far! These are fab! But with my budget, I might just end up going to Old Navy for one of their super cheap and colorful ones. :P

Ash Fox said...

MizzJ said...

The Celine is so chic and sexy in that sexy secretary way! Any tips on how to wear below the knee skirts for those of lacking in height?
