Over time, after a few seasons of short or mini-skirts parading around in previous years, we realized that the length of skirts are changing especially during this 2013 when bohemian vibe invaded almost every 2013 fashion weeks. Inspired by various hippie touches from the 60s to 70s, either with prints or solid colors, billowy or straight cut, various clothes are gaining more length and long skirts are back again to be one of must-wears every woman should have.

Being an incredibly practical and comfortable fashion staple, long skirts, or mostly called maxi-skirts, are super chic and flattering, perfect for almost any occasion depending on its designs, details and styles, both for day-to-day wearing if paired with basic and neutral pieces, and for night outfit if matched with more sophisticated and elegant accessories and blouses. In other words, these pieces are a kind of embodiment of beauty, femininity, style and practicality.

However, like many other fashion pieces, wearing maxi-skirts can also be tough depending on how it’s done. Knowing that long skirt is great for women with taller figure cannot be denied. But the fact is actually all woman with all body shapes can fashion the pieces, as long as they know how to make appropriate combinations. More importantly, skirts of this style mark the tummy area as well many women suffer from additional hump when wearing these skirts.
