How to wear a Maxi Skirt

The Maxi Skirt became very popular last Spring, and it's sticking around for Fall/Winter 2011. Maxi Skirts are pretty straightforward in the warmer months - pair with a cute tank and some wedge sandals and you are good to go!

But for the colder months, when you have to bundle up more, it can be tricky to cover yourself in so much fabric without looking frumpy. So, here are some of my tips for rocking the Maxi this season (as well as a pic of 3 different looks to give you some inspiration).

1) When it comes to tops, you need to go for something fitted, cropped, or belted. This is the most figure flattering look when you are wearing a long (and usually fuller) skirt.

2) It doesn't matter how tall or short you are, you can do the maxi skirt, but it is all about proportion. So, if you are 5'4" or under, avoid the super full styles. And for everyone, the higher waisted the skirt (with a shorter top), the longer your legs will look.

3) When it comes to footwear, a knee high boot with a heel is best. Whether it's a high heel, chunky stacked hell, wedge, or even the slight heel of a cowboy boot - there needs to be some heel. 


  1. I love how you paired the maxi skirts!

  2. Thanks Laura! Glad you liked it - hopefully it gave you some inspiration...

  3. I never thought I could wear a maxi skirt in the winter but love the idea. I'll be shopping around now :-)

  4. Yes, you can Michelle! It's just all about proportion - especially when you are petite.
