You have to admit that full, dramatic, printed maxi skirts are not the easiest of skirts to wear. They can make or break your look. They can make an unsuspecting victim look garish and overdone.
But here’s the deal, done right you can pull off a look everyone will remember for a long time. Just take these two celebrities for instance:
1. Laura Whitmore wore her circle-printed DSQUARED2 maxi skirt with a basic white shirt

The MTV presenter’s skirt already made enough of a statement but she went the extra mile and opted for a little ‘70s styling on her unbuttoned shirt. She accessorized with a cluster of necklaces and understated bracelets and rings.
2. Vanessa Hudgens wore her floral skirt with a leather jacket

It’s no secret that an effective way to toughen up your sweet floral ensemble is to inject some leather to it. So kudos to the former High School Musical actress for topping her Alice + Olivia “June” strapless bustier top and matching Alice + Olivia “Kamal” ball gown skirt with the Elliott Label motorcycle jacket.
But tell us, which styling did you like more? Are you into Laura’s ‘70s-chic styling more or Vanessa’s perfect balance of tough and feminine?
