1. Maxi Skirt + Graphic T-Shirt
It's no secret that we love graphic t-shirts, but that's for good reason. They go with everything! Maxi skirts included.
2. Mix and Match Your Prints
Ok, we're diving right in to the advanced stuff! Solids are great, but no reason to be afraid of a little print mixing. Black and white stripes are a great place to start. Just make sure you pair a thinner stripe with a big bold print. You want to create balance with one smaller print and one larger print.
3. Pay Attention to Material and Fit
This is an important one. A skirt that's too clingy or made from fabric that's too thin and sheer is not going to be flattering. On anyone. I know the hesitation in not wanting to look like you're being swallowed by fabric. But just like with leggings, you really don't want everyone to see everything.
4. Mix Up Your Fabrics and Textures
Fall and spring. Seasons we love, but man, they can be tricky for dressing. Wearing a lightweight sweater with a feminine and flowy skirt creates contrast and visual interest for your look. The two textures and fabric weights also balance each other out, so you still look seasonally appropriate.
5. Maxi Skirt + Chambray
Chambray. It really is a closet essential. You just can't go wrong with this combination.
6. Go Bold
Maxi skirts can be real statement makers and the perfect item for special events (think weddings, dinners, holiday parties, etc.). So go big or go home, right? Try a bright color, sequins, or tulle and keep the rest of the look super simple.
7. Maxi Skirt + Belt
Define that waist! Many worry that wearing a maxi skirt will make them look bigger with all that volume. A belt helps draw the eye to the narrowest part of your smoking hourglass figure.
8. Define Your Waist
Let's actually expand on this point. Belts are a great option, but there are plenty of others as well. Knotting or tying your shirt, tucking your shirt in, wearing a crop top, all are great ways of balancing the volume of a maxi skirt.
9. Maxi Skirt + Tank Top
Like I said earlier. Maxi skirts are the perfect solution for those hot summer days. Keep it casual and cool by pairing your flowy skirt with a casual, lose tank top or basic t-shirt.
10. Not All Maxi Skirts Are Created Equal
It's true. They come in different shapes, lengths and materials. Some have pockets, some have slits. Some have accordian pleats, some are a more fitted A-line. While that may seem overwhelming at first, it actually just means there's something out there for everyone. And that's actually pretty awesome.
With so many ways to wear and style maxi skirts, we're confident you'll love them just as much as we do.
