How to Wear Maxi Skirt

Go Casual On Top
A maxi skirt is already over-the-top, so tone down the drama with a cropped sweatshirt.

Be Creative With Your Tops 
Because maxi skirts are so long, you can get away with turning anything into a top, including tank dresses, other skirts, and one-piece body suits. Just don't forget to add a blazer or cardigan!

Balance Out The Volume With...More Volume! 
Who says you have to wear something tight on top if you've got a lotta skirt to work with?

Try Your Hand At Color-Blocking 
A bold, slim skirt paired with a fitted tee can look like a dream. Hues in the same color family are fail-proof combos, but those with a wild streak can try out these quirky color combos.

Tone Down Sheer With A Slip Dress 
Here's an interesting styling tip for anyone who wants to wear the season's sheer skirt without getting cited for indecent exposure: A slip dress is the perfect coverup!
