I honestly HATE TRYING TO FIND the perfect MAXI SKIRT… I mean seriously… they drape, they are gathered, they are suppppperrr long, make short people look ridiculous and on a slightly UNproportioned tall body can come to look like a complete DISASTER !!!!
How many maxi skirts do people have in their wardrobes ? seriously… what – like one ?… none ?
My point exactly !
I have a curvy figure, a much fuller bottom half and a rather toned, washboard upper half, so just imagine how WRONG I look !
However, I always keep the thought of finding the perfect maxi skirt somewhere in the back of my mind !
2 weeks before I found my miracle maxi skirt. oh no it wasn’t one of those love at first sight moments… it was more like "a broken record” moment – different skirt, same feeling. I was trying on all these long, gathered chiffon skirts that just sat too heavily on my bottom half making my thighs and hips look even larger than they already were. Don’t even get me started on the clingy, jersey like ones either !
THESE were an ABSOLUTE NO NO!
Not too worry though – there is a happy ending to this story.
Short after, I came across a Tribal printed maxi and thought, GREAT it’s going to be another one of THOSE things.
Totally wasn’t ! Totally LOVED IT !
The fabric is a very light weight stretch mesh – it doesn’t cling to your body, it doesn’t make you look larger than you are, it fits perfectly around the waist, and even has a small skirt slip underneath it for you. It’s exposed waistband allows you to tuck tops in and out as well as creating belted looks.
Usually when I have printed pieces I like to tone them down with plain block colours.
As you can see I’m wearing my favourite plain black thermal shirt and just an antique gold aztec style necklace to compliment the look.

Happy Maxi-Skirting !
