Maxi skirts are comfy and breezy, and perfect for people who want to look cute and feminine but would rather not show a ton of leg! I love them for summer! And don't be afraid of them if you're on the shorter side... as long as you find one that hits you at the right length (tons of stores offer petite/short options), maxi skirts look great on all heights.
I'm all about embracing and wearing what flatters your body type, and I've realized that I really don't like the way my torso looks when I tuck my shirts into maxis. It's just not a flattering look on me. So, I wear them with crop tops instead. I like crop tops that are long enough so that only a sliver of skin shows. It's subtle and not too in-your-face, and you won't feel self-conscious after eating a few tacos or having a few beers (just keeping it real haha)! I found this black one at Zara. I love the way the fitted crop top pairs with the flowy, feminine maxi. I finished the look off with a cute pair of Vans low-top sneakers to keep it cool and casual. I'm a big fan of pairing sneakers with a more feminine outfit - it instantly makes you look more relaxed and effortless. The maxi in the photos above is an oldie but goodie from LOFT a few years ago.
