3 Ways to Wear a Maxi Skirt

3 Ways to Wear a Maxi Skirt


I don’t know about you, but I feel like this season you can’t go anywhere without bumping into a maxi skirt or ten in stores, and as a recent convert, I thought I’d pop up a quick post about how versatile these little cuties can be. Over past seasons I had dismissed the maxi skirt as something which should be reserved for the warmer spring and summer months, but with the onset of jumper season, there’s no reason why you can’t transition this look right on through to winter.

Here’s how to wear a maxi skirt 3 ways – click the icons to shop on your computer or use the links below if you are reading this via a mobile.

For the weekend the maxi skirt works a treat with an oversized knit, a leather jacket and good old gazelles – this look can take you anywhere from shopping with your gal pals through to Sunday brunch. For the office switch out the knit and jacket for a more office-appropriate shirt and blazer, while come cocktail hour add a simple blouse and tux jacket and you will have an on-trend look nailed.

Maxi skirts… where to shop.

So we’ve established there are a ton of maxi skirts out there hitting a pile of key trends along the way. Look for floral prints (both ditsy and oversize) in autumnal hues, metallic look fabrics as well as pleated skirts in anything from tulle to velvet which are perfect for the party season ahead. Also on the sizing front, if you are a shorty like me, take a peek at some of the midi skirts out there which end up being a maxi on a petite frame.
