Yes, a maxi skirt can also flatter and lengthen the figure in a flattering way. It can also help you look more stylish. So, if you want to achieve this, you must know what length is best for you.


Actually, you can wear them long to the ankle or flush with the feet, that will depend on your tastes and style, in addition to comfort.


For example: if you wear an ankle-length skirt, opt for flats or flat sandals. Otherwise, if you wear heels or platform sandals, choose long skirts that rub the ground, but don’t drag.


Asymmetric openings and hems.


This way of wearing maxi skirts is fascinating. This works if you think they look too large and you need balance. For this, choose front or side slits and asymmetrical hems that work in solid colors.


Dare with colors and patterns


Keep in mind that prints are the allies that generally don’t fail. You can play with neutral colors to counteract and make you look taller. For example, you can dress monochromatically with similar colors and avoid huge prints as well as horizontal stripes.


On the contrary, vertical stripes will always help you create a focal point that will help you see higher.


Fabrics are good allies. 


You can wear the skirts with fresh and flowing fabrics, especially when they’re made of linen, silk, or woven. Being light will help you look taller. Besides, they hug the silhouette naturally, which will help to flatter your outfit.
