take notes - how to wear a maxi skirt

I'm forever a devotee of the maxi skirt.  Anything that hides my pudgy knees while allowing me the occasional cool breeze will always be high on my must list.  I have to say though, that lately the long look has become boring, and I find myself craving a new way to wear this wardrobe treasure.
Since I'm guessing some of you might share my feelings, or even want to give the maxi a try for the first time, I took the liberty of pulling some of my favorite looks from the web, to bring you another volume of styling notes, maxi skirt edition...

I'm thinking with just a few changes here and there, I'll be able to give new life to my maxis this summer!

Your turn...Any of these looks your favorite or not so much so?  Let's discuss!

  1. I heart the maxi skirt! It is so comfy and so versatile. My favorite here would be the large patterned skirt. Very cute. This is also one of my favorite layouts in blogland! Great job.

  6. Maxis are lifesavers around here. They keep me warm, but let me feel like it is almost summertime. Banana Republic just came out with a new brown and white one that I am seriously coveting

  8. Love it with the t-shirt and cardigan - this could be the answer I need for my hips and thighs (maybe) since they are so neglected.

  13. I'm pretty much obsessed with the maxi (skirts and dresses) currently. Can't get enough.

    I love a small printed maxi (small floral print or stripes), bright color (I wear a hot pink one a lot) and flowy (chiffon)! Love it with the denim top - tho I love denim on top with almost anything. :)
