Welcome to another petite post! I promised you all that with two posts per day, I’d get into some specifics, and to be honest, it’s been fun for me. I love learning new things. FASHION new things. Who’s got time to learn about compound interest when you can learn how to rock a maxi skirt when you’re petite?!
While I’m not considered petite, I do have people in my life that are. My beautiful daughter-in-law, for one!
My son is a lucky man!!! Kayla looks great in everything, including a maxi skirt. Today I’ll give you tips on how to rock the look, too.
How To Rock A Maxi Skirt When You’re Petite – The Right Shoe
One of the best ways to trick the eye and elongate the leg is to match your heels with your skin tone! If you’re pale, that means nude heels!
I love these simple chunky heel sandals. They are a great height for those of you who don’t love high heels, and the two straps are simple and elegant. Plus, you can’t go wrong since they are only $38 dollars!
For those of you who need a higher heel, these are a great option. They have great reviews, over 11,000, and are very affordable at $39 dollars. They also come in other colors if nude is not what you need.
You don’t have to wear heels with a maxi skirt. Flat sandals are a great option. You’ll be comfortable and look great, too. These neutral slides would go with everything!
How To Rock A Maxi Skirt Even When You’re Petite – Cropped Tops
When you’re petite, wearing a maxi skirt is all about proportion. That’s where a cropped top comes in. I know that most of us aren’t keen on showing our abs! Lucky for us, there are so many high-waisted maxi skirts that will look great with cropped tops.
I love this ribbed pullover! I’ve shown it in the trending color sage green, but it’s available in a ton of others. The reviews say to size up. I’d wear this with a camisole underneath and with a high-waisted maxi.
Here’s a very casual cropped top that would look great with some of the denim maxi skirts that are trending. I always read the reviews when I’m posting things for petites, especially since I can’t always wear the clothing myself. The petite reviewers have been very positive about this shirt.
Is it getting cooler where you live? I cannot WAIT till fall. Sweaters are one of my favorite items of clothing, but they can be so boxy. If you’re petite, a cropped sweater is always a good option, especially when paired with a maxi skirt.
How To Rock A Maxi Skirt Even When You’re Petite – The Right Skirt
When I was researching how petites could wear maxi skirts, one of the things I learned is that long skirts actually fool the eye to indicate height. I also learned it’s really hard to find petite-specific maxi skirts that are cute! I have a new appreciation for you petite ladies. With that being said, there are some skirt types that work better than others.
Vertical stripes are a yes when you’re petite! In addition to the great pattern in this skirt, I also like the high waist and the slide split that can show a bit of skin and elongate the leg. I think it’s just the right amount of volume, too.
This works for petites on so many levels! It’s long, which, believe it or not, is the correct length of skirt for petites. It has vertical stripes to fool the eye, and it has a great high-waist top that could be rolled over if you need to adjust the length. Not to mention, it would match just about any color under the sun!
This skirt is simple, but flowy skirts tend to look good on petites. The key is not to go too crazy with volume so that a small frame doesn’t get overwhelmed. Neutrals such as navy are always a good choice.
Have you ever shopped from Reformation? I love finding new stores! As I was researching for this post, I read that Kelly Ripa is a big fan of theirs because they have such great petite options. This black silky skirt would look great with a silk camisole for a dressy night on the town.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the post and found something helpful. Let me know if you’re going to try a maxi skirt this fall!
