Hi loves! I hope you are all off to a great start to your week. There is a misconception that petite women cannot wear midi skirts. I am here to prove to you that this is not the case! When styled properly, a midi skirt is a great piece for petite women to enjoy. Here a few tips to help you style a maxi skirt with ease:

  1. Always tuck in your shirt. The midi skirt that I am wearing is old out but I wanted to point out that it was not a petite midi skirt. It is a regular sized midi skirt that I am wearing high-waisted. So don’t be afraid to pick out a regular sized midi skirt. Just be sure it is no one than 2 inches past your knee.
  2. Heels are a must. Midi skirts simply look far too long without them.
  3. Avoid  long pieces. The trick to wearing a midi skirt as a petite woman is to balance out your look. For example, you are going to want to avoid a long cardigan or jacket when wearing a midi skirt. Instead, opt for a jacket or cardigan that is cropped.

Below I have added a list of maxi skirts varying in different price ranges. Don’t be afraid to try a midi skirt ladies. It just might become your new favorite piece. I know it is for me!
