Shelly 2013 told herself that she could never wear maxi skirts. As a petite, I thought I would be swallowed up by maxi skirts and look ridiculously short. Until one day I tried it on I fell in love with it; I realized not only you can be petite and wear maxi skirts, anyone with any shape or size would look great, and taller in maxi skirts if you stylize them right! Floral maxi has to be the wardrobe staple when it comes to spring/summer and the festival season! To get you started, I will share with you style tips on how to nail a floral maxi look! <3
1.Wear with plain color tops such as white, black, olive green
Try this easy combination you will be surprised how effortless it is to look good in a floral maxi! As the floral pattern already stands out a lot of lights up the look. You would want to keep the other pieces minimal so the look is not too much, and lose its focus!
2. Loose waves and curls for your hair style
Maxi skirts usually are more like vacation looks so you want to make sure you hair style is casual and effortless to match the outfit. =)
3. Tuck in your shirt and belt it!
By tucking your shirt in and belt the outfit creates a higher waist line so you look visually taller.
4. Minimal Jewelry
I am not a big fan of chunky jewelry when it comes to a maxi look. I love to wear minimal jewelry especially long layered necklaces to feel refreshed for a spring/summer look.
5. Gorgeous pair of heels / sandals
You can never go wrong with a pair of brown, black, beige sandals when it comes to a maxi look. In this look I chose a orange pop heels because the color correspond to the floral pattern on my skirt. So the outfit looks more matchy!
