Maxi Chic: 6 looks to shop that put the max in maxi
Not only do these full-length skirts give off extra oomph, they are super versatile and can be worn beyond the hot summer months.
Skirts are, without a doubt, one of the most necessary pieces in any summer wardrobe. The wardrobe staple that keeps walking in and out of fashion, is now making a strong comeback. With the rise of modest fashion designers and body positivity movements around the globe, the figure-flattering design is here to stay. Ever since its debut in the 15th century, the maxi skirt has gotten quite a few makeovers. Starting with crinolines (steel hoop frames to accentuate a wider hip), followed by figure-hugging skirts, all the way to long, flowy numbers that were favoured by hippies, the maxi skirt has always been the most graceful way to cover up while still looking classy and elegant. Having said that, the designers over at Boksha have some of the most unique pieces that would last you way beyond September.
Well known for her feminine cuts and opalescent fabrics, Yara Bin Shakar’s versatile sets are to die for. Featuring a soft linen fabric with holographic chiffon detail, the Aries Set makes the perfect day-to-night outfit.
Another Yara Bin Shakar favourite is this reversible Iris set. The two-piece linen set is reversible, allowing you to dress it up or down according to your mood. The Iris set comes in blue and beige.
Feeling a bit playful? This Spanish-inspired Art Skirt from Emirati brand Mimosa Label is girly, fun, and chic. The hand-embroidered taffeta skirt comes with a lace-detail matching top to complete the look.
Summer brights embody the true meaning of summer . This crepe wrap skirt from Dubai-based label Pose Arazzi, comes in three colours that are vibrant and joyous.
The four Emirati sisters at NAFS are always re-defining the traditional abaya. This half-belted abaya/skirt is one of their best-sellers for a reason. Featuring a velvet skirt, everything about this ensemble screams chic!
