Maxi skirts and dresses have been quite a trend for women nowadays. If you would ask me why would i wear a maxi, i will just simply say that it gives you an instant classy chic look. That you can expect other people give you attention while wearing it. Even if you are short,tall,chubby,thin or medium built, i am sure that maxis can definitely make your look more classy. Not too trying hard. Not trashy. Not a pain in the eyes. Just make sure to pair it up with the right tops. Not too loose. And never wear them with turtle necks (unless you are as gorgeous as Georgina Wilson) And for me, it is better to wear open toe footwears to balance its length.
