Stunning.  My girl, Zephila* is stunning in this red maxi.  It helps that she's gorgeous, but maxis really are the most universally flattering clothing piece around.  Mini skirts were all the rage for centuries, but unless you have great legs, they really weren't practical.  Maxis offer more coverage, which makes them not only more comfortable, but also makes your look more appropriate for almost any occasion. 

I love everything about Zephila's maxi dress, but what makes it so flattering on her body is the shape and her fabulous shoes.  The top and skirt of the dress are soft and flowing, and the waist is cinched in to show definition.  It's an incredibly feminine silhouette that looks good on everyone. 

Shoes can be tricky with maxis.  In my opinion, select your shoes based on the length.  You do not want your maxi dragging on the ground.  It won't hang flatteringly on your hips and you'll be tripping over it all day.  Grazing the ground is a better look.  Or, if you're wearing some amazing heels and want to show then off, let your maxi hit the top of your foot (like Zephila's). 

If you don't own a maxi dress or skirt, I highly suggest trying one.  You can find them in all price ranges and you'll find it's an appropriate piece to wear to almost any occasion.
