Maxi Skirts | Wearing & Styling Tips






Maxi Skirt: New Look - Jumper: Charity Shop - Hair Band: New Look - Belt: Primark

I don't often do fashion how to posts, as, well, I don't really consider myself hugely fashionable or highly knowledgeable when it comes to all things catwalk or "on trend". I wear what I like, and something I feel happy & confident in. I gather all my inspiration from people around me and those who I claim DO have a fair amount of clothing know-how. However, when I recently filmed a haul video on YouTube, I showed a couple of maxi skirts and asked if anyone *may* be interested to see how I wore them. I had an overwhelming amount of "yes pleases". So, with the help of Louise as camera lady, I set out and created the video especially for those of you who asked.



Maxi skirts are my summertime essential. As someone who suffers with "I despise my legs" syndrome, they are my perfect go-to on a warm day where tights and leggings would be an awful & sweltering idea. They cover my legs, provide a cool breeze, suit my shape & frame, yet still look quite glamorous & effortless.

A few tips & hints:
  • If you are short, wear a maxi skirt at your waist, rather than your hips, it elongates the legs making you appear much taller, as well as shortening the length slightly.
  • If a maxi skirt is too long, but you absolutely love the style & colour, then take it up! Don't be lazy, it takes minutes to stitch up a hem, or even use the iron on webbing if you aren't very good with a needle and thread.
  • If you are on the shorter side, and anything "maxi" is just too long or you can't be bothered with adjusting the length yourself, then count yourself lucky that you can wear some killer wedges with it. You appear taller, feel more elegant, and nobody will ever know ;)
  • If you are taller and find maxi skirts impossible to fit you length-wise , try going for a maxi skirt which is designed to be sat at the waist, and wear it on your hips. This way you are shortening the length and the appearance of your legs.
  • You don't ONLY have to wear maxi skirts in the summer or when it's hot, put on a pair of leggings or tights underneath for a bit of added warmth on those days where the sun is shining but there's still a slight chill. Nobody will ever know!
  • You can also layer up with different t shirts, jumpers & scarves in the colder months. I find that jersey like fabrics sit better for colder days, and floaty fabrics look a lot more summery for the hotter days.
  • As maxi skirts are so long, you can get away with wearing many different top variations and tucking them in. You could even wear a pretty dress or swimming costume underneath & all would be concealed.
  • I find that cropped jackets & blazers look best with my maxi skirts, as it helps to balance everything out. I tend to opt for a cropped denim jacket for a more casual look, and if i'm going somewhere nice, I'll go for a cropped blazer.
There really are no set rules around styling maxi skirts, tuck tops in, let tops hang out, wear flip flops, wear boots, wear leggings, wear at the waist, wear at the hips, wear in winter, wear in summer...you make the rules. I know that not everybody will feel the same love I do for a floor-length skirt but it's such an easy thing to dress up, or dress down, and if you aren't blessed with gorgeous pins as I unfortunately haven't been, they are a summer life-saver, plus, you feel so elegant & feminine!

  68. Zoe, may I ask why do you despise your legs? From what I have seen from your OOTD and previous blog posts, they look quite nice and proportional (say compared to mine). I hope you don't get offended by that. You've also said that you stand around 5'4, I think you look a bit taller than that, which is obviously good. Anyway, GREAT video and blog post. I hope you do more of fashion inspired videos and I hope you do a look book sorta thing too. XOO

  123. I am very short and your blog post has opened my mind to the purchasing of a maxi skirt. I have recently purchased a pleated midi skirt, it was a complete impulse buy, and when i tried it on I discovered that it made my lower legs look massive... Is this normal for a midi skirt, in your opinion? and do you have any tips on what to wear with it to take attention away from my ankles?... Help would be much appreciated with this midi skirt dilemma.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Grrr why can't I work the maxi skirts...I love the way they look and the way you styled them I just cant make them work for me no matter what...I guess I'm just a lost cause!

  129. Great post - I think a maxi skirt looks nice and elegant which can sometimes be hard in summer when everyone's all hot and sweaty! I love the website makeover by the way, and I saw the feature you were in on the Topshop website - congrats! I literally always think of you when I think about Topshop lipstick. That sounds kind of creepy actually, I'm not, promise! x

  142. Thanks for the advice! You definitely need to do more fashion posts :)
    I tend to veer away from maxi skirts because it seems like you can only wear sandals with them and I'm sort of not a toe person..as weird as that sounds!
    Would you recommend any other type of shoes to wear with them or would anything else seem to clumpy and out of balance?

  166. great advice, great blog, i always shy away from anything "maxi" because of my size but i will definitely be taking ur advice to New Look to see what it looks like...Loving the blog design too so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Hey Zoe I absolutely love this! I'm not sure whether I can pull off the maxi skirt look really, as I'm quite tall ( 6 ft) so I think it might look weird. Because of your lovely styling tips I might have to try it out though! ;-)
    I have been a reader of your blog for awhile and even if you don't post something new I'll come and just read some of your old posts. Love you Zoe!

    xoxo Melina

  168. You combine these maxi skirts so lovely, you're the first that makes me want to buy one! I think I'm falling for pleated maxi skirts.. They just look so flowy, light and comfortable! xoxo

  169. I picked up a gorgeous floral maxi skirt from New Look about a month ago and it is the most comfortable thing ever! I'm saving mine for my holiday, as I needed something that was multi-wearable, and that could be squished into my case - the one I got doesn't crease - BONUS! I love the way you've styled the maxi skirt in this post, and I'm definitely going to try it with a cropped jacket! Would never have thought of that!

  178. Absolutely adore your blog! I've spent my whole day watching yours as well as SprinkleofGlitter's vlogs. :)

    Anyway, I've been really interested in expanding my wardrobe to include maxi skirts and dresses (which I'd previously dismissed because I stand at a measly 5'1 and I figured they would make me look like a bit of an elf), so I found your video and blog post extremely helpful! However, I live in Miami, FL and unfortunately we don't have a New Look or TopShop or H&M here (yet). I tried to buy a maxi skirt from F21 a while back, but it looks a bit awkward and bunchy by the hips. Are there any other major stores/affordable online stores where you'd recommend buying maxi skirts?

    Alrighty, well, I've bothered you enough! Bye! xx

  183. Zoe i just want to say your amazing :) I think your beautiful and are a lovely lovely person.. This is no joke I must watch your videos everyday and I love your blogs :) You and Louise are the funniest girls I have ever seen I have litrally sat there in actual tears laughing at your videos haha. Especially the one with the chocolate fingers and the one when you heard a noise in Louises house and thought the boiler exploded haha.. I notice your having slight trouble just because you wear a cross for fashion in your video for fashion.. I think there is nothing wrong with it, its up to you what you wear and at the end of the day your doing that video to help other people and it is highly unfair for people to be unfair to you.. Anyway would just like to say keep doing what you do its amazing :) and thank you for all the help in your videos it is much appreciated :)
    Lots of love

  184. This is fab, thanks Zoe! I am very short but after seeing this became fixated on getting a maxi skirt! So i got a £10 jersey one from Primark, inevitably way too long! But today I set about with my scissors and iron, lopped a few inches off and wonder-webbed it. Don't think it's perfectly even but nothing chronically noticable. I intend to wear it with wedges and loose vests/shell tops tucked in. :-) Thanks!

    Who cares about being on trend? If you are comfortable with what you wear that is all that matters. I think you have great style.

  188. I don't really know what category I fit into! Think I might just avoid them altogether but I'll refer back to this if I EVER decide to take that massive plunge of the dreaded maxi skirt! ;) Thanks Zoe
