A. It’s hard to get away with wearing a maxi length to work in the summer as it can tend to look like you’ve underdressed or are on your way to the beach. However, wintertime is a great excuse for covering up and embracing maxi length skirts and dresses for the office. I don’t mean full length ball gowns but ankle skimming day wear.
The key to this look is to wear them with boots- ankle, knee high, high heel or flat- whatever your personal preference as they will all suit.. Yes, you might have to pick the skirt up as you walk up stairs and they can be especially dangerous on an escalator (I still haven’t recovered from my maxi skirt being literally ripped from my body at the top of the escalators at the Clothes Show Live when I was 15.) However, these small risks are outweighed by the feeling a maxi length gives you. There is something so satisfying about a good swish and it is also a life saver for those (like me) who struggle with finding the right fit of trouser but don’t always want to show our legs. I live in a J.Crew tartan long A-Line skirt this time of year which I wear it with a poloneck or white shirt, long coat and boots and its cosy enough to keep me warm but also great for meetings.
