The Style File: Maxi Skirts

For Enroute...I totally understand your dilema regarding the maxi skirt. For the first time in my life I have a tummy, and I've always had hips from h$LL. Here's my solution. Keep the skirt dark and straight and have a shorter top/jacket to pair with it. It seems to keep the line taller and longer. A little padding in the jacket also helps to balance out "hippy-ness" I wore an outfit quite similar to this one last night and received many compliments from strangers - men and women alike...My jacket is closest to the one in the inset on the right, but I think the peplum style will work too as long as it's still a shorter length jacket. Hope you find this helpful :-)
