Hey Peeps! Whenever I take a poll I, the opinions are evenly split. And I do not hate it. I totally understand we all are not the same and have different style statements. I was trying to figure out a closet staple which every girl can have; shy or bold and the first option that came to mind was a long skirt.
I have 10 reasons why I feel every girl should own at least one long skirt.
It adds height to your frame
Generally, any long skirt, pant or trousers give an illusion of longer legs. If you are short and you don’t want to show you are wearing heels, you could always hide it easily. My height is 5’7″ and I strongly feel I look much taller than my regular self in this maxi skirt. Which girl would want to miss that?
A long skirt is for every body type
Recently a friend asked me to write a blog post on outfits that could be worn by all body types. So, this is one solution for her. I will be surely coming up with a different blog post showing the flattering outfits for a curvy body type. Till then you should surely try a long skirt.
Are your legs waxed? Why worry?
Agh… We all have faced it right? There are times when I have cancelled my plans just because I was not sure about wearing a denim in a party and my legs were not waxed. Thanks to fashion industry who have come up with a dynamic range of hot and sexy long skirts too. I know how to pull a svelte loof even when my body is not ready.
You can repeat them with numerous tops
I did a small survey on what do girls own more, top or bottom wears. The answer is quite expected was that women buy top wear more. Is it because we feel bottom wears are more versatile? Or you are afraid of trying lots of new trends in the market thinking once worn it can’t be reused?
When we buy something unique it gets more traction and we fear to repeat them thinking everyone will remember that. A maxi dress can be styled in numerous ways and can give a complete exclusive look every time.
I have a personal request to all you ladies out there reading my blog post, do not hold yourself from trying out different looks assuming that you wouldn’t carry it. Eventually, I have noticed that we do not want to be seen in same outfits at public places. Why have we attached it to our status symbol always? Be creative and recycle your outfits as many time as possible.
A long skirt can be worn in any season
Regardless of seasons, I love wearing the flowing bottom wear throughout the year. In summer I find it more comfortable than jeans, trousers or denim bottoms. Flowy outfits are my fashion buddy for the sweltering Indian summer.
In winters, if I do not want to go out in regular jeans and bottoms and I want to look girly, long skirts are my first choice. I can always wear a legging or thermal wear and no one would know.
A versatile long skirt can be worn on many occasions
You can repeat you maxi skirt with many top wear and carry it in any occasion, be it a formal, casual, western or even an ethnic setting. You just need to mix and match your long skirt with a top which is apt for that occasion.
Not comfortable in showing your skin?
There are lots of girls who are hesitant to show their skin yet want to look stylish. Of course, it’s nowhere mentioned that showing off your skin makes you more stylish.
I do not mind both, showing skin or being covered. At times, I am honestly not comfortable showing skin as well. The reason could be my legs are not waxed. Long skirts help me look beautiful and stylish while still covering a temporary flaw.
Flaunt your top wear without overexposing
I am someone who believes in exposing one body part at a time. Overexposing sometimes looks vulgar. For example, bikini looks good only in swimming pool or a beach vacation. If you want to wear a sexy top, a long skirt can easily complement your top and balance out the overall look.
Can be styled with a basic tee/top
A flowy skirt is always beautiful in itself. A basic top or tee focuses the highlight on your skirt only and your long skirt grabs all the attention.
You look uncommon
Standing out from the crowd makes me feel strong and confident. I have seen people wearing what everyone else is wearing for any particular occasion. For me, wearing something uncommon is always exciting and what’s the fun if I can not style my outfit differently.
Do let me know how much you love my styling in the comment section below.
Until the next time, stay fabulous!
