How To Wear A Chiffon Maxi Skirt
Summer is coming and so is the season for long chiffon maxi skirts! Now the question “How To Wear A Chiffon Maxi Skirt?” seems to be a tricky one, because I get asked that a lot.
Many women hesitate to wear them, because they think it will make them look shorter than they are. But this is not true! You can perfectly wear chiffon maxi skirts, even if you are a sweet petite.
Here a a few style advices regarding How To Wear A Chiffon Maxi Skirt:
Buy a maxi skirt that ends at your ankle/heel. Avoid sweeping the streets, as this will get your hems ruined faster than you think.
If you are petite, always wear your maxi skirt with heels which will give you the extra length!
Pleats are very fashionable this season, but they can also add a lot of unwanted volume. Therefore, I would rather recommend a silky-flowy chiffon fabric for curvy ladies.
Because a chiffon maxi skirt has a lot of volume, it is advisable to style it with a slim-fit tank top or a fitted jacket/sweater to create a balanced look. Anything not fitted on your upper body will make you look bulky.
The best rise is mid-rise when wearing a maxi skirt. That means: It should sit at the top of the hips or slightly above. If you are conscious of “muffin tops”, combine the skirt with a tailored top that ends just below where the skirt sits.
If you wear your skirt with a low rise, you will almost automatically create a Bohemian hippie look.
Chiffon maxi skirts are very suitable for colour-blocking, especially when you wear a belt. Safe bets are combinations with neutral colours.
Said this, there is no harm to go bold sometimes!
