The Black Maxi: Inspiration

This week, we are excited to feature one of our favorite basics, the black maxi skirt. This season-less piece works as well in the summer with a tank top and sandals as it does in the winter under a parka. More comfortable than a pair of jeans, better looking than a pair of leggings (sorry, leggings), and MUCH easier to wear than a mini skirt, the black maxi has few major flaws (except perhaps, its propensity to soak up water on a rainy day - best to avoid the maxi in a monsoon). On top of all this, adding this piece to your wardrobe will cost far from an arm and a leg - yet another reason a black maxi has found its way into both E. & P.'s closets. ;)

Below are a few of our favorite warm-weather black maxi skirt looks - we hope you enjoy!
