Being petite and wearing a maxi can be tricky. Its easy to look shapeless when you are only 5'2. But I think I've figured out how to pull it off.
1. Tuck it in. Always
2. Wear it high on your waist. (chambray outfit post) I used to try to wear it low and it just made me look shapeless. Wearing it higher makes you look taller and accentuates the smallest part of your waist.
3. Knot it. I like doing this when I'm having a fat day and don't want to tuck anything in. (maxi skirt outfit)
4. Belt it. (maxi skirt outfit)
Petite girls do it right.
