Vantage maxi skirts
Generally, with long skirts, choose tops that are fitted or cropped and not too full. I can envision you in a white ruffled blouse or a sleeveless sequined top with a cardigan sweater, accessorizing with loads of pearl necklaces and a quilted leather clutch—a saucy look that Coco Chanel herself could have sported.
You're right that your daytime skirt shouldn't be ball-gown length; it should clear the floor, stopping around your ankles or perhaps well below mid-calf—a look that taller women can pull off more easily. Shorter women will look leaner and taller with ankle-grazing hems. The shoes could be ballerina flats, high-wedge espadrilles or Mary Jane patent-leather low-heeled shoes.
