I know many would advise against smaller girls wearing maxi or midi shapes, as often they can make us look even shorter than in reality. However, I think a well fitted maxi dress or skirt elongates my figure, a higher waist (or well placed belt) making my legs appear longer, which is always a great feeling on a fat day.
This autumn/winter I am filling my wardrobe with maxi cuts in dark shades, a slightly more sophisticated alternative to my usual jeans/leggings and t-shirt combos. Topshop, Primark and River Island are currently stocking a vast array of 'mullet' style skirts, fitted below the knee pencil skirts, flowing maxi skirts and jersey maxi and midi dresses. Worn with tights and this season's must-have black studded ankle boots these pieces will help us with the winter blues.
