Sweep Dreams

Floor-sweeping and ankle-grazing skirts have been spotted sashaying down the streets and the red (or blue!) carpet. In fact, my top pick for Best Dressed at the recent 2011 Teen Choice Awards is Troian Bellisario of Pretty Little Liars, who donned this sophisticated taupe and black maxi dress. It's actually like a thigh-high cocktail dress with a nice criss-cross detail on the bodice finished off with a layer of sheer fabric from the waist down. Stunning.

Model Miranda Kerr and model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley both look very chic in their long, flowy skirts paired with basic tops and comfy nude flats.

Ashley Olsen and Nicole Richie are proof that petite ladies can also look fabulous in maxi dresses--and they don't need heels to pull them off!

I never thought the long skirts I wore a lot during my pre-teen years would ever be in style for casual wear!
