Maxi skirts are one of those garments we tend to be a bit scared off. Maybe because we feel it doesn’t suit us, or because we are not that used to wearing those types of skirts. But whatever reason has had you afraid of wearing this item in the past has to be thrown out as soon as you can. Especially since maxi skirts are an item, we all should have in our closets since they can be really versatile, using them for formal looks, casual-chic ones or a combination of both. If you still aren’t sure how to rock the maxi skirt trend, check out a few ideas we bring you!
1. Basic Black
Having a black color piece of cloth is always key, doesn’t matter what we are talking about. A black maxi skirt can be matched with any type of top you decide too. Plus, it helps you create outfits that can be worn in any season all year round. Match a black maxi skirt with high heels and a long sleeve top for a dinner night or add sneakers and a crop top for a more relaxed fit. The options with black maxi skirts are endless!
2. Denim Fever
Denim is a forever favorite textile when it comes to clothing. And why not having a denim maxi skirt added to our wardrobe? If you throw on a denim maxi skirt with a floral or flannel top you can have an outfit worthy of a Texas queen. You can also match these types of items with sneakers or sandals to have a more relaxed fit. If denim on denim is your trend, match a denim maxi skirt with a denim jacket a basic color top to turn heads when you walk. You can also find denim maxi skirts in different color shades like black, white or the usual blue to add to your choice list.
3. Shinning With Sequins
This type of maxi skirts is definitely one you need to have for special occasions. A sequin maxi skirt matched with a plain formal top can save you when you get invited to a last-minute event and don’t really have time to shop. Get them in neutral colors like wine red, navy blue or a classic black. You could also wear it to a day event, like a wedding, with a flowy top and sandals to get a stylish look.
4. Ballerina Vibes
Tulle maxi skirts are without doubt a whimsical item that can add a touch of magic to your daily outfits. If you want to go on a different direction with your regular looks, try getting a tulle maxi skirt that can be matched with sneakers and a front-knot printed tee for a more street style look or with high heels if you want a more elegant style. Mixing tulle skirts with leather jackets are also an awesome way to rock them and get that flirty girl vibe!
5. Day At The Prairie

And you can get lots of variety on the floral prints too! From daisies to roses in different color shades that can go from a single shade of flower to lots of colors on the same print will definitely brighten up your options. You can also match floral maxi skirts with plain color puffer jackets and boots when winter comes.
6. Pleats For The Win
A pleated design is never under the radar of fashion lovers. Pleated maxi skirts can be found in any color shade that can be transformed into elegant monochrome outfits or with printed ideas that turn into a really attractive optical effect. Pleated maxi skirts can also be found with different pleat volumes that can help you look more sophisticated and modern at the same time.

7. No Blank Spaces
Transparency maxi skirts usually made out of chiffon are a great addition to your wardrobe items. They can be used at almost any occasion, from going to the beach with your favorite bathing suit under it to rocking a high fashion street style outfit matching them with thighs, high heels, and an oversized jacket. Most of the time this type of maxi skirts come with a double layer of fabric in your private’s area, so you don’t have to worry it’s too transparent. But if it doesn’t make sure to match it with something underneath if you don’t want to show you underwear to the world.
8. Knitted To The Roots
Another style of maxi skirts we don’t tend to think of is crochet ones. This type of item usually comes in a natural white color but can be dyed to match more your personal style. They appear light with the touch of a boho-chic vibe and can be used on lots of daily activities. You can match them with colorful tops, add a belt and boots to finish the total look. You could also do an all-white look, with a crochet maxi skirt, a plain white top and even a white belt with silver buckles.
Wrap designs are super flattering for any body type and wrap maxi skirts are not the exception. You can find them in lots of styles, some include straps to tie them in a nice bow, others include buckles, and some are just wrapped and held in place with an invisible button. Wrapped maxi skirts can also be found with mixed lengths, slits, printed or in a plain color. They are a great addition to your closet because they look effortlessly chic.
10. Never Out Of Style
Stripes are those types of prints you can see in everything and they never go out of style. Having a simple striped maxi skirt can become one of your favorite items in your closet. You can match this type of garments with plain tops and denim jackets for a casual look you can wear for a date at the party.
