I love a good maxi skirt. They’re as comfortable as pajamas and so much cooler in the summer than skinny jeans. But for some reason they’ve always felt a bit more on the casual side to me. For the longest time I relegated them to weekend wear but there’s no reason to limit myself when I love them so much. I decided I just needed to think of more ways to wear my maxi skirt to work. Here’s a few I came up with:
Blazer + T-shirt
One of my favorite combinations for any outfit is a blazer and a basic T-shirt. There’s just something simple and put together that makes this combo a no-fail in my book
I love the pop of color this silky blouse adds to the black and white maxi skirt. And the button-down front of this blouse helps add a work-appropriate feel.
I think the neutral color of this cropped sweater helps tone down the brightness of the pink maxi skirt. I also think it would look particularly cute with a collared shirt underneath as the temps cool down.
Peplum Top + Cardigan
Whenever I’m in doubt of whether I look “dressed up” enough for work I always throw on a cardigan. That extra layer just helps me feel a little more put together. And this peplum-style top accent my natural waist giving me a bit of shape.
I’ve been having some fun trying to mix and match items to wear with my maxi skirts. If I had my way my closet would be full of maxi skirts in all styles and colors. But for now, I’ll work with what I’ve got.
What’s your favorite way to wear a maxi skirt?
