It’s amazing how much of my inspiration lately has been pulled from television. While revisiting some Friends re-runs, I fell in love with a long floral skirt that the character Julie was wearing in the second season episode titled “The One With Breast Milk”. I love the knot at the top, and the romantic floral print. Please excuse the poor quality of the photo, and accept my apology that you can’t see the skirt in all its lengthy glory.
Now I’m craving floor-skimming skirts like never before, whether in flirty floral prints or in non-fussy light grays or charcoals. Maxi skirts are so simple, both functionally and aesthetically speaking, yet are such great statement pieces.
While there are some pricier skirts out there, like Emilio Pucci around $1,500 and Rick Owens at a slightly more modest $1,000, there are fortunately more attainable skirt choices. As usual, Target has come to the rescue this season with a range of long skirts at reasonable prices. I’ve included a couple of mid-range priced options for added eye candy and inspiration.
