Ava DuVernay continues to deliver unique and fascinating looks on the red carpet, setting herself apart as a supremely talented film director and a budding style icon. Last weekend, the “Selma” director made an appearance at Russell Simmons’ Art for Life gala in one of our favorite looks yet: a printed maxi skirt with a gray t-shirt. She finished her look with natural makeup, flowing locks, drop earrings, bangle bracelets and a gold clutch.
We love that Ava paired her skirt with a simple gray top, proving just how versatile the printed maxi is. You can easily dress it up with heels and a clutch like Ava, or go a more casual route with flat sandals and a crossbody bag. Not convinced? Check out three ways to style a maxi skirt for different occasions below.
