The maxi skirt is one of the new trends for now and heading into the new year.  To make this look work for most business women, be aware of your shape (Hourglass, Flute, Shaker, Martini or Magnum and see www.corporatechic.com.au if you’re unsure) and read on to find out which maxi style will suit you.

Olivia Palerma looks like a stylish business chic , with this tulip shape maxi skirt that would suit most shapes.  Teamed with a jacket and belt, this combo would be fabulous for Flutes as the belt emphasises the waist.  For Magnums, the long jacket covering the hips and shoulders helps to balance the look and to hide your hips.

Most petite women should avoid maxi skirts but this tulip shape and the following pencil style will work for you – just be prepared to take the length up.

Victoria Beckham looks every inch the stylish business woman in this maxi pencil skirt.

Now this is a look a petite person could adopt – the skirt is slim and so creates an illusion of height which can be maximised by adding high heels!

For Magnums, the white shirt makes the shoulders look broader and helps to balance your hips.

This knit maxi skirt would suit most figure types since it’s slim lined.  Magnums, you would layer it with a long line top covering the tops of your thighs.  Shakers, the top would be shorter and end at your hips.  Hourglasses could pick a top that emphasises the waist.  Flutes could try a belted jacket look.

For a neutral business alternative this outfit worn by Lauren Conrad looks amazing. Here is a similar one from Wish for $140.  Skirts like this work well for Shakers if you layer it with a long line top.   This is a great look for Martinis as it adds bulk to your hips and helps balance your shoulders. Note the lovely soft colour, a great alternative to black,  perfect if you are a warm skinned blondes.

These 2 maxi skirts from Witchery look fabulous for most shapes when layered with long line tops.  If you’re a Shaker and want to minimise the look of your stomach and hips, you could change the white top to a dark colour or a distracting pattern and layer with the skirt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However you stack it, a maxi can give you maximum satisfaction in a business setting when paired with a shirt ir top and jacket.  Try to avoid the huge floral versions though, as they look like they should belong at Kuta Beach in Bali as the sun sets.

Remember, no matter what your shape you can dress with style and Corporate Chic.

Enjoy.
