Long maxi skirts have been an obsession of mine since many seasons ago. I love how they can transition from summer to spring to fall and now even winter? Yeah you read it right. Pair up with some tights and boots and you just transitioned to fall/winter. Heels/flats/combat boots/any boots..it can work! Starting off with a basic color is best because you can then wear any top with it. Patterned slit skirts are fun too, just pair with a basic top or fitted jacket.
Here are some looks that might inspire you.
