The Long Trend

Time to put those Jersey Shore minis to bed! Say hello to long maxi looks! Dress up or dress down with a playful, elongating maxi skirt or dress this Spring! Here are a few quick tips to amp up your maxi look:

  1. Play up your look with accessories! Add cuffs, bangles, big earrings, a waist belt and long beaded necklaces to add some sparkle and glitz.
  2. Go long! And even longer! During the day, go for a shorter length where the bottom of your dress hits the top of your shoes. In the evening, your hem should hit the floor for a more dramatic and upscale look.
  3. A cure for the shorties: long lengths make you look taller! A long maxi with tall wedges can add a 2-3 inch growth spurt in seconds.
  4. Let the fullness in your skirt decide what's on top. If you got a whole lot of volume goin' on on the bottom, opt for tucking in your blouse and adding a waist belt. If your skirt or dress is on the tight side, add some drama and wear a flowy tank or long knitted sweater.
