Style, Decor & More: Get the Max Out of Your Maxi Skirt!

Get the Max Out of Your Maxi Skirt!


What's there not to love about the maxi skirt?  It's comfortable, flirty, and feminine, and can be taken from day to night by simply changing accessoriesWhen worn correctly, maxi skirts can be as flattering as they are fashionable, even if you are petite. If you are on the shorter side (like me), consider wearing floor length maxis with a higher platform heel as shown in the photo below. If you prefer to wear comfortable flats, opt to wear a maxi that grazes the ankles.
When wearing the maxi, always keep your body proportion in mind. If you are wearing a belt, consider wearing it higher, near the narrowest point of your waist. It gives the illusion of an hourglass shape and longer legs. A tighter top will also look better with a fuller maxi skirt.

If you've tried these tips and you still feel uncomfortable with the look, try a maxi with a slit. This will give the illusion of longer legs also.
So, what do you say? Will you be wearing a maxi skirt this season?

  1. I love maxi skirts in the warmer weather, so comfy, and flattering on everyone!

  2. Gorgeous skirt...I love the way it flows!! Beautiful!

  3. This maxi skirt and accessories are so beautiful and summery! Unfortunately, this look would never work on me. I'm 5'2" and about 105 lbs. When I've tried on maxi skirts, I look like a gnome! Do you agree that shorter women are probably not good candidates for maxi skirts or dresses? Love your blog!
