The Maxi: Why This Trend is a Must Try for Women over 40

Six to Sunday

There’s something undeniably elegant and flattering about the long lines of a maxi dress or skirt.

This season, the maxi length is taking center stage, which suits us perfectly since the long style is easily executed for any shape and size.

Selecting from a variety of styles from full skirt to more body skimming, straight looks, we bring you our three favorite ways to style the maxi.

  1. Extend the life of your favorite slip dress (or a slimmer maxi skirt) by adding a blazer (middle minimizing, we got you!) and booties.
  2. To visually balance a fuller maxi skirt, select a monochrome color palette and incorporate a waistline and sleeves rolled up the arms.
  3. A summer-weight skirt can be make transitional by pairing it with complimentary fabrics and shapes in the top. Don’t forget to create a waist with a half tuck, wide belt, or cropped biker jacket.
