I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to invest in a maxi skirt. I had this idea in my head that I was too short to wear them and all the material would swamp me but now I’ve tried them out, I know that’s not the case. The two maxi skirts I own have quickly become summer staples in my wardrobe and I’m so obsessed with them that I wanted to share with you a few reasons why you need a maxi skirt in your life too!
They’re flattering on everyone
Name me a body shape or size that a maxi skirt wouldn’t suit. Exactly. You can’t! Depending on the shape, they can be really elongating and give your waist some definition which I know I need sometimes!
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t tanned or shaved your legs
I am one pasty gal and rarely show off my legs if I haven’t tanned them which means late night tanning sessions and sometimes, I just really can’t be arsed with that. This is wear maxi skirts come in and save the day like the superhero of the fashion world! No matter what state your legs are in or how long you haven’t shaved for, maxi skirts are your best pal!
You can cover your legs
Not fake tanning or shaving is one thing but there are a lot of people out there who don’t like showing off their legs as they feel insecure about them. If that’s you then you know exactly what you need to invest in! *Hint hint, a maxi skirt*
You can wear them all year round
Maxi skirts really don’t get the credit they deserve for being such a versatile piece. I’ve got this polka dot one and a plain black one and I could easily wear both of them throughout every single season. With a baggy jumper and biker boots in autumn and winter or a cami with a pair of Converse or sandals in the warmer months, you can literally wear it with anything!
They make you feel good
I know every item of clothing you wear should make you feel confident but the reality for me is that normally I just sling on a top and jeans and don’t feel any better about myself. However, when I wore this outfit to work a few weeks back, I felt so pretty and really confident in this skirt. It helps that I received a few compliments on it as well but genuinely I feel really put together and presentable when I’m wearing a maxi skirt!
I’m so happy I took the plunge and have finally incorporated maxi skirts into my wardrobe, they’re definitely a staple from now on!
