What I love most about street-style is that it captures women (and men) in clothing with a flare for the drama. And these women, on their way to fashion shows and the like, all pull off eye-catching floor-length maxi skirts and dresses effortlessly. I love the idea of a leather-jacket-topped maxi dress or full ballroom skirt for a night on the town — it’s so unexpected and just a touch dramatic … a.k.a., just the way fashion should be.
So I went on the hunt for the very best of the dramatic maxi dresses and skirts out there right now, and I came up with so many gorgeous options. The verdict: bold ruffles are fabulous, as are great prints and layers. And I really want a new leather jacket!
