Maxi skirts are all grown-up this season, reworked in summery prints, sumptuous satin and dreamy ruffles. Perfect for the party season, we love the scale and drama of a floor-skimming maxi. The nipped-in waist and generous silhouette suits most figures, and anything that lends itself to a dramatic twirl on the dancefloor has our vote.
To keep a bright colour looking grown-up, pair it with a crisp white shirt-come-bodysuit, which does away with the tiresome job of tucking your top back in throughout the evening. And for a contemporary feel, clash your colours a little. In this case, a red buckle on pink shoes hits the right note.
