Finding your way around long skirts
If you thought long skirts are for the tall and lean you are mistaken my trendy Bella! Long skirts or maxi skirts as they are usually called are a great wardrobe addition for any and every body type. The grace and length that these pieces lend you is amazing. Long skirts can be a treasured garment if paired with the right things. They are versatile, breezy and very trendy. Yes it is true that long skirts can easily be carried by all the ladies with long legs, there is still no reason to shun this trend if you are short or petite or curvy! Here are some fail proof ways to turn this trend around in your favour-
Evergreen white tee
Pair your skirt with a delicate body defining white tee and a statement necklace. Wear your skirt at your natural waist. This makes your legs appear longer and you look tall. Added advantage? If you have a tummy bump, this style easily hides it and falls in the most elegant of ways on your body!
Knotted boyfriend T-shirt
If you like the good to go look more than anything else then you can work around this tip. Pair your feminine skirt with a loose t shirt and tie it up at the side for a grunge-boho look. Accentuate this ensemble with soft curls, statement shades and some quirky floral, statement or printed boots.
Layer it with a summer jacket
When these skirts first started taking the runway by storm, I was a bit sceptical about this trend. But seeing the numerous wonderful ways in which the women have adopted this trend to suit their style is amazing. If you are not a big fan of super chic look, you can just throw in a subtle tee with a quirky summer jacket to compliment your skirt. The pre set pleated skirts are not very gathered and give you a sleek look. Hence, summer jackets work really well with straight cut or less gathered long skirts.
Crop tops are the best way to take your skirt style a bit higher. Structured crop tops in beautiful prints and accents of lace help you play the diva at night outings. You can also, go grunge with checkered and structured tops. This style tip helps you look tall and focuses on the thinnest part of your waist. The best part? It works for all sizes!
Pairing with a blazer
The best thing about long skirts is that they can easily be worn at semi formal events to help you look chic and dapper. Pairing a long skirt with a body hugging t shirt and a classic cut blazer is a great evening outfit. Team this with a pair of heels and neat hair.
Cinch that waist with tucked in shirt
Travelling in summer time can be quite a task but long skirts make it so much more fun, stylish and easier! Remember your favourite over sized shirt? Yes, that’s the one we are talking about! Pair it with your maxi skirt and tuck it in loosely. Add a statement belt and a pair of quirky shoes and you will be travel ready. This look can work beautifully for beaches as well.
Tie it up
Long sheer skirts are a craze for holidays. Be it a beach rave party or a poolside lunch with friends, sheer skirts help you look feminine and at harmony with the breezy ambience. Pair a sheer skirt with a long loose t shirt dress and some sorbet coloured flips flops. Tie up the skirt in fun ways and add some beach jewellery to the whole look. We bet you would make heads turn and hearts yearn!
