Just as pleats on shorter skirts don't work for all figure types, pleated maxi skirts may not suit your figure type. Don't despair, just try a different style of maxi skirt instead. Match the top to the skirt style. The fit of the skirt determines the style of top you'll choose.
If the style doesn't match, the overall look can be dowdy. Looser, flowing skirts tend to look best when the top fits well, as this tones down the overall enlarging effect of a billowing skirt. For skirts that fit tightly, looser tops make an ideal contrast. Cropped tops look great with maxi skirts, as the skirt keeps lengthening your body even though the top stops at your waist. A cropped top with heels can help elongate a shorter figure; indeed, if you have a shorter silhouette, make sure that the top stops at your natural waistline.
Sometimes adding a belt will improve the final look, especially a broader belt that cinches in under the ribs or around the waist. The slouchy top look tends to be carried off best on leaner, taller bodies. Layered tops work well for taller figures. Decide whether to tuck the top in or let it sit over the skirt. There is no hard and fast rule on this——you'll need to experiment in the mirror.
But here are some tips: Don't tuck in where doing so creates an unsightly bulge or somehow disturbs the flow of the skirt. Thin cashmere or similar style thin width sweaters can look elegant when tucked into the waistband of a maxi skirt. Layering can allow you to tuck in the t-shirt or shirt while leaving the other layers untucked, such as a cardigan, jacket or coat.
Leaving the outer layers unbuttoned can be a good look, as the top of the skirt will be easy to see. Obviously, if the skirt is tight around the waistband, tucking in may prove uncomfortable.
Instead, try layering or a cropped top. The texture of the top and skirt do not have to match but they must be complementary. There are two options here——monochrome all one color or matching colors.
Avoid using colors that clash, as with any clothing. Monochrome can look very slimming and elegant, as the same color all the way down your body creates a sense of elongation. However, be careful to match the shades well or it can look slightly off color.
A patterned skirt works best with a solid color top and vice versa. Definitely avoid mixing up spots, stripes, florals and diagonals. Wear the right shoes.
If you're petite, wear heels to give you the added height to cope with the skirt length and to elongate your silhouette. If you're taller, flats or heels will work with a maxi skirt, although heels are usually preferred for evening wear. Most heels will work well with maxi skirts but always check in the mirror before deciding. A light jacket in leather or denim is a way to give this fun and feminine look an unmistakable dose of edge.
