Maxis can get a bad rep, associated with flimsy, usually floral lightweight skirts worn in Palm Beach. But, as designers like Altuzarra and Alberta Ferretti proved for spring '15, that couldn't be farther from the truth. In fact, with carefree dressing ruling the season, there's actually nothing more relevant than a flowy bottom, especially in forward-feeling pleats.
But, we get it, wearing a billowing skirt in the dead of winter won't cut it. That's why we rounded up 11 pleated iterations ahead that could easily be worn with tights now and sans tights later. Go on, maximize your 2015 wardrobe.
