Pinterest to the rescue!
A simple search brought about some great inspiration for curvy women wearing maxi skirts. Here are some of my favorites:
It appears that the key to rocking the maxi skirt is emphasizing the upper waist. Whether that be by belting your middle or tying a shirt in a knot around your waist, the key to not looking like one amorphous being is to create definition. I love the pairing of something structured and form-fitting up top with the looser, breezy skirt. The skirts are also being worn at the top of the waist (over the belly button) and not under it like you might wear a normal skirt.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you try a maxi skirt?
