Teal Maxi

Have I told you I love wearing maxis? I used to be intimidated by it because I was born petite. But since I started wearing them, I had been so into them! It is a simple way to dress up your look. Contrary to popular belief that petite people should stay away from maxis, it can actually help to lengthen your limbs.


One way to make a maxi work for you, though, is to find the right fabric, print (if you opt for printed ones), and the fit. This teal maxi skirt that I recently added to my closet is a new favorite. I know I say that all the time when I saw the color and cut, I knew it was meant for my closet. The fit not only looks good but it also feels very comfortable to wear. It seemed so ethereal with the right pair and exudes simple sophistication, too. 

For this particular look, I opted for the casual take though because the boyf and I were out to grab some dinner for a Friday date night. I do like to dress up for him once in a while, but more than anything I just wanted something that is comfortable.

 

How do you like to wear your maxi? Casual, elegant, or boho?

  1. I love your teal and stripes combo here, Abby. And I agree that petites can totally wear maxi skirts, it's all about the right fit and proportions, which you've done perfectly here!

  7. I totally feel you on being petite an maxis, my only problem is im also short and I can never find the right length so I either have to opt to wear my maxi with heels or have to get it altered! But i love your teal and stripes combo!

  11. Hi Abigail,
    The maxi really elongates your figure and does not overwhelm you at all! Lovely colour.
