Maximize (See Jane Go Long)

Throughout the past few months, it’s seemed like all fashionable ladies have been letting out their hems and donning longer skirt lengths.  Ever since junior high, when long skirts first started making an appearance, I participated in the trend, but always felt awkward in floor-skimming lengths.  I’m on the taller side, so I felt the silhouette wasn’t doing any favors to my pre-teen figure (see: body of adolescent boy).  Well, the long skirts are back and I’m dying to try it again.  I ran into a bit of a caveat while shopping with my fiancé awhile back; I showed him the long skirt I was about to try on and he replied, “Are you Amish now?”  Note to self: when I do muster up the courage to wear a floor length skirt, don’t test it out on him.

Until then, I will admire these lovely ladies who make a long skirt look especially good (and I know the fiancé would definitely approve–just look at them!):

  1. My Hubs said the same thing, 'cept replace Amish with Grandma….I really want one – its even in my post from this am! Even if i did wear one i would die, its freezing here!!! (I do rock maxi dresses all summer long!)

  2. i'm tall too, but i feel like they somehow make me look short! i don't know how that's possible, but that's how i feel. love taylor from sterlingstyle–she's so sweet!

  3. I love this trend too! I have a long skirt and my husband made a comment like that about it at first too. But now he loves it! Haha. Boys just don't know.


  4. Ooh, you've featured some of my favorites here! I've yet to try the maxi… I wasn't sure I could pull off the maxi dress of last summer, but I think the skirts seem more doable, somehow! Will be hard to rock before late spring though, otherwise would be dragging through snow, then slush, then mud! Oh, Canadian climates.

  5. Nice outfits, the first one is my favorite.:D

    I think wearing one can be tricky but hey, it's all about taking risks sometimes!:D

  6. Being a similarly built and tall gal, it is quite a statement when I wear my maxi skirt (I have a long, fairly straight number in blk). The Bf has nothing terrible to say about it, but he does wonder why I am "dressed-up" every time I wear it! 😉 You totally need one!
