The Best Ways to Style a Maxi Skirt

Maxi skirts are extremely versatile articles of clothing that are suitable for nearly any occasion, from a backyard barbeque to a formal wedding. Plus, they can be worn in any season, as the extra fabric provides warmth during the winter while also being breathable during the summer months. But that’s enough about their practicality—we haven’t even talked about how incredible they look yet! Maxi skirts flatter every figure and can make you look like a statuesque goddess, a boho-chic queen, a polished fashion maven, or all three, depending on how they’re styled. Now that we’ve sold you on how absolutely amazing maxi skirts are, it’s time to get down to business. To learn about the best ways to style a maxi skirt, continue reading.


For a more casual maxi skirt ensemble, dress down the skirt by pairing it with a classic graphic tee. Knot the t-shirt in the front to add definition to your waistline and prevent your silhouette from turning into a straight line, due to all the fabric. If there isn’t enough fabric in the shirt to knot it, simply tuck the extra fabric into the skirt’s waist.

As for shoes, opt for a casual pair of strappy sandals or, if it’s colder out, a pair of nice sneakers will do the trick. Top off your look with a pair of aviator sunglasses and minimal jewelry to complete your casual-chic vibe.

Posh and polished

For a style that is a little more formal yet still wearable, pair a solid-colored maxi skirt with a button-down blouse. We suggest opting for a classic French tuck (slightly tucking the front portion of your shirt into the skirt) to balance your proportions. For shoes, go for a pair of open-toed heels or wedges; either will elongate your legs even more. To add a pop of color, choose a bright handbag or clutch.

Edgy and eclectic

To add depth and intrigue to your maxi skirt ensemble, go for a more eclectic look that mixes different fabric types and textures. For example, pairing a flirty lace maxi skirt with a leather jacket creates an attractive balance of femininity and edginess that will turn heads. A nice pair of black ankle booties will look great peeking out from under your maxi skirt. As for accessories, we suggest a long pendant necklace and stud earrings.
