Spring 2012 Trends: Maxi skirts and Dresses
Though miniskirts and short panties revealing long legs are considered sexy, this spring you might want to leave them in the closet. Maxi skirts and dresses seemed to be a number of our top designer’s favorite go-to clothing for this Spring. Stunning couture elite maxi gowns, gorgeous floral maxi skirts, flowey maxi dresses and many more variations of this fantastic floor-grazing style, will be the style to watch out for!
The great thing about the maxi trend is that you can match it with almost anything. Wear a sexy corset, a buttoned shirt or a loose-fitting top. Or maybe you decide to choose a simple tee accompanied with an over-sized necklace. Whichever you choose, you’ll look super trendy and fashionable. Add some flats and you’ve got yourself a comfortable yet sexy outfit for a day at the office, a night out with friends or a romantic date.

The late singer Amy Winehouse was the inspiration for Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring couture collection. The maxi designs presented during the show were incredible. Some of them included large swollen coats or gowns, while others were super sexy and a bit translucent. One way or another, the maxi designs by Gaultier were avant-garde and sometimes looked larger than life...like the one and only Amy Winehouse.
