I've seen plenty about, New Look has several, but I'm a little stumped as to what to wear them with. What kind of top?
Also, is 5'2" too short to wear one at all? Size 10 but a little untoned after spending most of last year pregnant, so not hugely enamoured of the tops of my arms but not dead set against getting them out either (I think it's inevitable at this time of year).
Ha, I was just pondering the same and saw your thread! I have a black maxi skirt and not sure what to wear with it?? I'm 5"3 but the length doesnt seem to be a problem, just what to team it with. Any suggestions please?
I also wear them with vests and a cropped leather jacket. I also like high waisted maxi skirts with cropped tops (without much of a 'gap' if that makes sense?!) especially as my torso is short. I've tried wearing one with a vest and a lace body over the top and that looked ok too, like a best with lace sleeves.
I'm interested in the responses because I love the maxi skis in the shops just now but worry about styling them as they could look frumpy.
I bought a nice black one from river island and a dip-hem one from topshop. I've worn then with a long-sleeved crop top - my belly is a bit untoned but it only showed about an inch of skin so was actually quite flattering. I'm about the same size as you and I hate the tos of my arms too!
