Let’s just keep going with our discussion about “flattering,” shall we? I hear so many women say they can’t wear long skirts or dresses because they’re too short, or they’ll just look at it and automatically say, “that’s cute, but it wouldn’t look good on me.” I’m guilty of that too, but usually, even if I think it won’t look good on me, I’ll try anyway, then make a final decision. But I know there are so many ladies out there who don’t even try long skirts or dresses, and that makes me sad because long dresses & skirts are my FAVORITE THINGS EVER. You know this if you’ve been reading Grechen’s Closet for very long, but just in case you haven’t, I’ll mention it again: I LOVE maxi dresses & skirts.
I’m going to do an “Essentials” post on Thursday with all of my favorite maxi skirts and dresses, and the shapes/styles I think everyone should try, but in the mean time, here are some I’ve found whilst perusing online that I love. What are some of your favorite maxi skirts/dresses? Do you wear them? or are you one of those ladies I talked about who’s afraid to try??
(for reference, I’m 5’4″ and I wear them all the time, mostly with flats)
