I’ve heard a few ladies talk about who much they love maxi skirts but simply can’t make them “work.” Say whaaaat?
Any body type can rock the maxi.
You can be petite and still wear a maxi. The beauty behind a full-length skirt is that it can be worn at the waist, at the hip and even right below the bust line should your shorter legs require it. Plus, it lengthens the body and tricks the eye into thinking you’ve got gams like Giselle.
Listen. We live in Maine. So the chances of us ever having bronzed legs is slim to none beyond the month of July. I know a lot of women that are shy about bearing their legs in the summer months due to this, but the maxi lets you wear a tank top and flip flops without worrying about how streaked your self-tanner looks.
A denim shirt? Looks great. A band t-shirt? Yes. A formal silk tank? Definitely. Anything looks good with a maxi skirt. Since most maxis are made in a cotton or synthetic blend, they’re easy to dress up and dress down. They transition perfectly into the fall and winter months too and looks just as good with a sweater or cropped jacket.
So basically, the maxi is the new LBD.
