Maxi, Frumpy or Fabulous?

This past fall and winter, I have noticed some frumpy looks while out and about.
Putting a little thought into choosing a style of maxi skirt will be to your advantage!
So here are my 2 cents:
If you are petite, it’s a little tricky; however you can beautifully pull off a maxi skirt.
Select a style that is well-cut and fits snugly to your figure. A lot of fabric can make you look shorter and frumpy, which you should avoid at all cost!

Choose patterns and colors that elongate, like vertical lines and dark colors. White will not do.
Heels and wedges add height. Stay away from flat sandals.
What you wear on top can add to your look. For example, a longer jacket will add height and also can hide.
If you are of average height or tall, you can’t go wrong with a maxi. You can wear flowing styles or snug.
Flat sandals, wedges, anything goes.

A rule of thumb when looking at design: Horizontal patterns add width. Vertical patterns add height. Angular patterns detract from width and can add height.

I really like the hi-lo style of maxi. It’s versatile. Tall and petite can wear this look! Pair it with some cute wedges and you’re set!

With the right style for your shape, you can look fabulous in a Maxi!
