Many stylish stars have been spotted wearing maxi skirts recently on the red carpet and whilst running errands.

The maxi is super flattering on so many different body types and they come in so many silhouettes.

With the right styling you can wear them anywhere from the office to a weekend brunch to a chic party.

Opt for a wild print with a dash of colour like Gwen Stefani, but then add a solid top so your look isn’t too busy.

Rachel Bilson loves maxi skirts.

On this occasion she paired a romantic lace maxi skirt with a simple white tank top. I love how this pure look wasn’t over accessorized. I have a tendency pile on ethnic accessories; as I get carried away with the gypsy vibe of a maxi skirt.

Ciara opted for a cool take on this trend by wearing a jersey maxi skirt which is perfect to show off her toned figure.

Whitney Port toned down her floral loose fitting maxi skirt with a simple black cropped sweatshirt.

Whether you opting for colour-blocking, volume, prints or something sheer, the beauty of the maxi skirt is that it can be styled for any season.

Wear it now with a tank top and flat sandals, when temperatures drop add a leather jacket and wedge boots; à la the Olsen twins and Nicole Richie.
