Great Lengths: How To Wear Maxi Styles

Maxi dresses and skirts have become style staples in every season. That should comes as no surprise because they can take your style to great lengths. While longer styles run the risk of approaching dowdy, ankle-length skirts and dresses are everything but dowdy when styled fabulously. So, I’m sharing my go-to styling technique in today’s post.

This Billabong skirt caught my attention because of the standout print. It has striking layers of vibrant parallelograms all over. Its additional details bring cool styling opportunities too. The button-up front, for example? You can use them to create a super sexy slit or just a subtle slit in the front. I’m totally here for the high slit.

Sizing on this skirt? I purchased a medium (a size up for me) at the recommendation of the brand’s size guide. But, since this skirt has an elasticized waist (it stretches in the back), I could’ve worn a small. So, I recommend getting your usual size in a skirt.

My approach to styling maxi lengths is to strive for balance. Since my skirt is loose and flowy, I opted for a fitted, cropped tank. This skirt wold also look amazing with a halter top, a tube top, or a fitted tee. If the skirt was fitted, however, I would choose an oversized top. But of course, all rules can be broken.
