A Wardrobe Essential
It’s a bit of a misconception that maxi skirts are only for the tall and leggy amongst us.
Styled well, this wardrobe staple shows just how versatile it can be. For every body type. For every season. For every occasion. It kinda just works.
We’ve chosen a few of our favourite Maxi Skirt style ideas to help you rock a top to toe look.
Wear it with a sweater or tee
Monochrome, print or block colour, match your maxi skirt with a plain tee or thin knit sweater. It lets the skirt and its silhouette do the talking. Opt for simple colour blocks or monochrome, for the sleek chic kinda vibe. Or pair a white tee with a print maxi skirt to show your fun and flirty side.
Flats Or Wedges?
Actually, both. It all depends on the look you’re going for. Pair it with crisp white trainers or pumps to embrace the casual chic vibe. Or top and tail it with a fedora and summer wedges for an elegant, beach club ready look. Oh and wedges are great for those of us who area little, shall we say, vertically challenged!
If there’s any piece that goes hand in hand with the maxi skirt, it’s a crop top.
From loose Cropped Tee’s, paired with a maxi straight cut with sexy side split. An A-line with strappy ruched crop. Ora flirty tie bandeau to complement a high waisted voluminous cut. A crop really is the perfect pairing to wear with a maxi.
Ruffles and prints can also create dramatic silhouettes and show stopping combos.
Think ruffle capped sleeves or a ruffled edged, strappy crop. Or head to toe floral or animal print with a sliver of sun-kissed skin to break things up.
Flirtatious, fun and uber feminine, that pairing has got to be one of our all-time faves.
A maxi skirt is long and often looks best when paired with something short, up-top. A crop-top is the perfect match for a maxi skirt but if you want a little more coverage. [Don’t worry, we got you.] Or you need that extra layer. Damn aircon! Or, well, just because.
Then layer up with either a denim jacket or leather jacket. The waist length cut of these jackets means they still leave your maxi skirt to do the talking.
Style It Up.
Maxi skirts might not seem like an item that needs an accessory. However, adding a belt cinches in your waist andoffers definition, particularly if you’ve opted for a monochrome or block colour look or a loose fitting top. It can also add a stylish finish to your outfit, changing a casual look to more evening chic.
And whilst we’re on the subject of‘finishing touches’, accessorise your maxi skirt look with some chunky hoop or tassel earrings. Grab a casual clutch for a relaxed, sunnies and cocktails, kind of vibe. Or tote it up to finish off that sporty chic look.
A fashion trend that we’re pretty sure is here to stay, the maxi skirt for women is one of our favourite wardrobe essentials. We reckon it’s probably one of the most versatile pieces you can have hanging around. Effortlessly Stylish. Flirty and Fun. Chic to Beach. It kinda covers all the babe bases.
