We Still Love Maxi Skirts

imageServiceA few years ago maxi dresses were something special to talk about.  Even though they’re old news to some, I have been loving them for years and still love them.  How else can a women of any size,  pregnant or not, wear the same stunning floor length dress to any day occasion and still look fabulous? Um yes, only in a maxi.  Just because maxi dresses aren’t really on a fashioinistas radar anymore, I still like to promote a good maxi skirt. Too many times, I’ve heard petite women say they cannot wear floor-grazing skirts and dresses.  This simply is not true.  They most certainly can.  In fact, a maxi skirt in the right color with the right cut can actually give one the appearance of looking taller. Skirts that skim the length of the body, will create a long vertical line making you look long,  lean and glam.

When wearing a maxi skirt, just be sure to wear a fitted shirt, a tucked-in T-shirt and or a cropped jacket if it’s chilly outside. The point is to not drown in fabric.  If the skirt is long, a fitted shirt will balance the volume.  This also holds true for a cropped jacket. As far as shoes, a nice pair of wedges or heels will look great and will also elongate the look.
