1. Belt it
to add some shape to your favorite maxi? By pairing yours with a cute belt,
you’ll get to show off your adorable figure under all of that fabric. If your maxi is a little long for you, a
thick belt can also temporarily hem your dress: just pick up a little bit of
extra fabric and hide it under your belt so you can hang with your girls
without trippin’ all over yourself.

2. Crop it
great way to show off your awesome elevation is to pair a darker maxi skirt
with a bright or patterned top. Even if
you aren’t the tallest girl in the world, this look will make you seem taller, since the dark skirt lengthens your legs and
draws your eye up to your bright tank.

3. Tie it
you’re constantly bouncing from place to place with your girls and want to make
sure your dress doesn’t get in the way, tying it up is a fun, chic way to make
your skirt a little shorter. Whether
your walkin’ around on the beach or running around in a giant game of tag, all
you have to do is gather the material off to the side and tie a quick knot.

4. Print it
you want to add that extra pop to get you some attention, pick a printed
maxi. A fun floral or cool chevron will
draw attention to your dress and the girl in
it! Try and match the pattern to your height—shorter gals should try smaller
patterns, but taller chicas should stick to bolder prints.
5. Accessorize it
a girl needs in life is a large-and-in-charge statement necklace. Give everybody something to talk about when
they see you in a solid shade maxi with a standout collar. Fierce!

6. Hem it
matter how tall you are, you want to make sure your maxi fits you. You won’t love wearing it if you don’t like
how it looks. Even tall girls might need to adjust the length, so ask your mom
to hem it or take it to a tailor to get it shortened. The bottom should fall perfectly between your
ankle and the bottom of your foot.
