Pippa Middleton Steps Out In A Maxi Dress (PHOTOS)

We love seeing what Pippa Middleton's got on each day, but we can't say we're often surprised. This famous sis favors short-sleeve dresses that hit above the knee, often with a leather or denim jacket and some stylish flats.

So we were totally thrilled when we saw Pips step out today in a whole new look: a maxi dress.

The pale pink (and almost sheer... but not quite) frock features a fun ruffle at the bottom, skimming above Pip's white peep-toe wedges. She finished the summery look off with a white moto jacket and a mustard-colored handbag with glam silver hardware.

It's a much more fashion-forward look than we're used to seeing from Pips, making it a refreshing change from her basic sundresses. Then again, the sheerness of the dress lets those famously toned legs peep through... so we still feel like we're getting the Pippa Experience.

Check out the pics below... do you like Pippa in the long, flowy look?
