Fabulous Find of the Week: Forever 21 Maxi Skirt


For this week’s Fabulous Find, we picked a piece that’s usually associated with summertime: the maxi skirt. But just like maxi dresses, these babies can also work for winter with some creative layering. Simply wear a pair (or two!) of tights or leggings underneath, layer on a sweater or coat, and you’ll be good to go.

This particular maxi skirt, from Forever 21, comes in a gorgeous burgundy hue that has a wintery vibe. The best part? This skirt costs less than $13, so won’t have to break the bank in the name of style. Just scroll down to check it out, as well as three cute ways to style this maxi skirt:
