When it comes to dressing for summer, everyone loves a maxi skirt. In fact, maxi lengths in colourful, floral styles are one of the biggest trends of the season. So, it was surprising (and refreshing) to see House star Olivia Wilde rebel against the summery look at a charity event in New York yesterday.

The actress arrived at the Fresh Air Fund Salute to American Heroes party wearing a sweeping, black maxi skirt teamed with a plain white shirt and some suede platforms. It's simple, sophisticated, effortlessly cool and we love it. Best of all, her chic updo and cherry red lipstick completed her statement style perfectly.

We think Wilde deserves top fashion marks for her latest look but how do you rate it? Hot or not? Let us know by voting below and get top tips on how to wear maxi skirts with our style guide.
