Maxi Skirt, $39.50 at Victoria’s Secret

Yeah, the saying is correct. Skirts do get longer when the economy is bad and the economy is so bad that skirts have reached maxi lengths. A great way to wear the longer skirts is to go monocrhome- black and black, red and red, orange and orange.

Advice for Real Women: You will wear a long black maxi skirt. I am so sure you will wear a long maxi skirt, that if you can find a good one under $50 (like those at Victoria’s Secret), I think you should consider buying two. Pair the skirts with a long Boyfriend cardigan or a color black top for a layered look. You can also throw a boyfriend cardigan over this summer’s maxi dress for a similar look.
