Street Style: Long Days, Long Skirts

by jennine on July 28, 2011

The summer days are long, and even longer are the skirts. More and more I’m seeing people of all heights delve into the depths of the maxi skirt. Floaty fabrics fluttering in the warm summer breeze. The perfect piece to fit the mood of the season. Even as I’ve resisted the long skirts due to my lack of height, have been wearing long skirts a few times a week. It’s a nice feeling, like a pioneer on the prairie, only, on the streets of New York. These days, it’s great to keep the maxi dress as simple as possible, paired with a relaxed tank top or as a straight modal tank dress. That’s a nice way to keep things simple and stunningly chic.

I really love a great maxi dress or skirt. And I actually prefer the more relaxed, simple tank look. =)

Long skirts just don’t look good on me, but I love the way they look on others. Love the first girl’s look

What brands or styles would you recommend for someone who is 5’2″? I never can find maxis that fit, even in petite sizes. I don’t want to have it be dragging the ground when I wear flats!

I agree with you. I’ve also stayed away from the maxi shirt because of height. However I’ve worn them in the past because they are so cool and perfect for the summer.
