Remember those gorgeous outfits that consisted mostly of maxi skirts and maxi dresses paired up with hats and flats that Brigitte Bardot wore on the 70’s? Or how about the really long skirts that were iconic during the 90’s grunge vibe? …Clarissa explains it all, Cher Horowitz (Clueless), Rachel Green (Friends first seasons) and Carrie Bradshaw (Sex in the City first seasons) rocked them in different ways.

Since last year, a lot of designers sent maxi skirts and maxi dresses to the runway, and although we didn’t see them that much out on the streets, seems they wanted them back this season too.
