The Long Skirt – Feminine Elegance for Fashion-Conscious Women

Long skirts are among the most feminine garments available to women: they gracefully hug the figure, can be wonderfully light, and adapt to a woman's body. Until the beginning of the 20th century, long skirts were primarily worn for propriety, gradually shortening over time. After an impressive resurgence with vibrant prints in the 1970s, the maxi skirt is now incredibly versatile: depending on its design and style, it suits festive occasions, can be worn casually on the beach, for theater or cinema outings, or even in the office, as a summer staple or for warmth in winter. Experience the design diversity of this must-have online at MADELEINE Mode and find the perfect "maxi" in your size.

Choosing the Right Long Skirt for Your Body Type
A long skirt is suitable for every figure and body size: Depending on the cut, you can perfectly emphasize your figure with it. Depending on its length, long skirts direct attention to the legs or the slender ankles of the lady. Whichever of your attributes you wish to accentuate, long skirts make it possible. Emphasize a narrow waist with a form-fitting top paired with a billowy maxi skirt. Long pleated skirts and flared skirts also complement women with narrow hips.
Skirts that hug the body accentuate the classic hourglass figure. Long skirts made of flowing fabrics suit both slim and curvier figures, gently caressing the hips and legs. They help camouflage areas you wish to divert attention from while enhancing feminine curves. Wrap skirts, slightly flared A-line skirts, and skirts with graceful volume are also great choices.
Petite women should lean towards midi skirts of medium length, no longer than calf-length, as floor-length skirts might appear too girlish. Bell-shaped skirts that fan out suit taller women best, adding to their femininity. Pairing a top over the skirt that isn't too long or cinching it with a waist belt prevents the female form from disappearing.

Maxi is In: Stylishly Combine Your Maxi Skirt
For brightly printed skirts, it's best to pair them with a solid-colored top in a more understated shade. Select a monochrome piece in a color found in the pattern of the other item. Conversely, a solid-colored long skirt can be combined with colorful tops or tops with lace details.
For the office, pair a form-fitting long skirt with a simple blouse and a tailored blazer. On cooler days, a maxi skirt combines beautifully with a fitted leather or denim jacket that emphasizes the narrowest part of the torso. Adding a knit sweater completes the look for a cozy leisure outfit.

Choosing the Right Shoes for Your Maxi Skirt

When it comes to choosing shoes, many options are available: Ballerinas or flat sandals can be combined with maxi skirts just as well as classic pumps or high sandals. Petite women, similar to mini skirts, benefit from high heels with maxi skirts, avoiding the risk of ankle-length dresses visually shortening the figure.
For lighter models, avoid heavy-looking knee-high boots and completely closed flat shoes as they can make your legs appear shorter. Wedge-heeled shoes create a graceful summer outfit, especially when paired with long skirts made of light, flowing fabrics.

The Black Skirt – Fashion Classic for Every Occasion

A black floor-length skirt is equally a classic for business and festive occasions but can also be combined for an elegant or casual leisure outfit. The choice of color for the top when wearing a long black skirt is entirely up to you: You can pair it with bold colors like red and petrol as well as delicate pastel shades, white, gray, or interesting patterns, depending on the occasion.
Fine knit sweaters, elegant tops, or tailored blazers go well with the skirt, just like classic white blouses. With the right top and accessories, you can turn a long black skirt into a casual outfit for a city stroll, an extravagant combination for the theater, a summer staple, or a timeless classic for festive occasions. Choose your black skirt in luxurious cashmere, genuine leather, or smooth silk to exude a touch of extravagance.

Skirted Pants: Culottes as a Distinctive "Summer Skirt"

If you also favor trouser-like alternatives alongside wide long skirts, a long skirted pant is an excellent choice for you. Culottes, as skirted pants are also called, strongly resemble skirts in silhouette but offer the comfort of wide-legged pants. They loosely drape around the legs, staying in place even in stronger winds. Wearing a unique culotte automatically lends an elegant and distinctive look. Skirted pants can be combined as versatilely as a maxi skirt. High-heeled shoes complement this style particularly well.
