I just put it down to that.
If you're taller, flats or heels will work with a maxi skirt, although heels are usually preferred for evening wear.
Most heels will work well with maxi skirts but always check in the mirror before deciding. Beaded sandals are appropriate for a flowing, Bohemian maxi skirt look. Espadrilles also look very casual and beach-like. Wedge shoes look great with maxi skirts and give you added height to carry off the longer skirt. Rugged styles can look great with many maxi skirts. These look frumpy with long skirts. Pointy toes and knee-high boots don't work either. And clogs and sneakers tend to look too chunky or dowdy.
Use a maxi skirt with an elasticized waistband. The skirt's waistband will need to have some "give" for this to work. Bring the elasticized waistband up your chest. Rest it comfortably just above your breasts. Cinch with a wide belt just under your rib cage. Now your lovely maxi skirt is a short and stylish dress! Depends on the colors of the skirt. The color of one of the flowers should work. Black, white and gray go with most things as well.
