There’s been a lot of extremes when it comes to fashion this year. Micro skirts found their way onto the runways and into the wardrobes of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber, while the bohemian maxi skirt simultaneously started making its mark as a summer must-have. 

Several stylish stars have already embraced this 1970s practical and lightweight trend, so expect to start seeing them everywhere. Say goodbye to those tight, hard-to-wear maxis of last year—because this season the maxi skirt is roomy, ethereal, and light. 

How are celebrities wearing the maxi-skirt trend?

A timeless classic, the flowy maxi skirt is adaptable to all kinds of occasions and pairings. Katie Holmes stepped out on the streets of New York in a breezy white maxi skirt that she styled with a light knit sweater and casual loafers. 

As for Taylor Swift, she was spotted arriving at her recording studio in a romantic white ensemble that looked effortless. The upside of the maxi skirt is that it can be styled with almost anything, creating a vibe that is both bohemian and chic and allows the wearer to step up their fashion game without suffering from the summer heat.
