Tall ladies like Ali Larter have a height advantage when it comes to wearing long maxis. In other words, the world is your oyster, so embrace this trend. While you may want to avoid vertical stripes, which will accentuate your lengthy frame, feel free to experiment with fun prints, sexy cuts, or retro caftan styles. Just note that voluminous fabric can add the illusion of weight, so tread carefully to create a sleek silhouette. Instead of heels, pair your maxi with flat sandals, such as an embellished thong or studded gladiator.
