Anything breezy and easy is always a yes in Summer provided they aren’t too short. Maxi dress and skirts are definitely number one choice in that criteria with more than decent length and easy to wear. I personally prefer maxi skirts over dresses as they have more scope to style. Not that you can’t wear a maxi dress in different ways but pairing a skirt is always little challenging.
This pleated skirt is my second purchase this season after this one. I always thought pleats will make you look fat but lately, I have realized it’s actually opposite when if you tuck them in. They don’t touch your skin like pencil or denim skirts rather they are airy and sexy. Banana republic always have the best selection of updated classics like this maxi skirt with soft floral design and flattering tiny pleats, this metallic tank (on major sale), Ruffle top (on sale) and sailor shorts . This skirt also goes wonderful with a white tank or a Grey graphic tee
