The mixi, a fusion of ‘the maxi skirt’ and the teeny tiny ‘mini skirt’, is the surprising silhouette that took the Spring/Summer 2012 catwalk by storm.  Jason Wu as ever can do no wrong.  He created huge flowing mixi skirts and dresses in an array of bright summery hues for his magical SS12 show.
As much as we love the mixi, it can be a difficult trend to approach so we have asked our team of boohoo fashion experts for a few hot tips to show how this shape can be surprisingly versatile!
Team it with a skinny belt to give your silhouette definition and nip in your waist.
Keep your top half sleek with tighter tops and let the mixi do the talking.
Colour blocking can be made easy with a mixi.  Try a bold colour in a fitted T-shirt with a colour-blocked mixi for a fashion forward look.
While the weather stays cool, a top tip is to layer mixi tops and skirts over leather-look leggings for a warmer approach.
How would you style it up?  Any ideas?
