Maxi Skirts: The Every-Season Staple
Women’s maxi skirts are a comfortable and super versatile piece of clothing that should have a place in every wardrobe. Appropriate for any time of the year, the difference between these women’s skirts as opposed to other skirts is in the length. While a mini skirt ends above the knee and a midi skirt falls somewhere between the knee and the ankle, maxi skirts are long skirts that are full-length and fall down to the ankle.

How Do You Style Maxi Skirts?
From floaty and feminine to boho and edgy, maxi skirts offer endless styling options for any occasion. Pair casual maxi skirts with animal prints or floral prints with singlets, t-shirts or even long sleeve tops for a laid-back weekend look. Spice it up with chunky accessories like beaded bracelets and open-toed shoes for that boho flair.
In warm weather, go for a maxi skirt, a cute bag and matching hair accessories. Black maxi skirts are great for nights out, just add heels and a small purse. In colder months, layer your maxi with sweats or knitwear, a leather jacket, and some chunky boots to stay warm and stylish.

What Tops Should You Wear with Maxi Skirts?
Maxi skirts and tops can be mixed and matched to take you from casual to smart casual to formal and everything in between. With more fabric involved in a maxi skirt than other skirts, it’s a great idea to stick to close-fitting tops to balance out your silhouette. Here are just some of the tops that work well with maxi skirts:
Are Maxi Skirts Business Casual?
Like jeans, a maxi skirt can be turned into business casual attire when paired with the right pieces and accessories. Skip the casual tees and opt for a more professional top, such as a crisp shirt or blouse in solid colours. A maxi skirt instantly looks more formal when teamed with heels, a handbag and some refined jewellery, such as studs or a delicate bracelet.
Black is a great colour for workplaces and also adds a touch of elegance to a formal evening ensemble. You can give your outfit more structure by slipping on a tailored blazer to balance out the loose shape of the maxi skirt.
When Should You Wear Maxi Skirts?
The true beauty in the maxi skirt lies in the fact that you can wear it all year round! Maxi skirts for summer are typically made of lightweight and breathable fabrics, such as cotton or linen. Swap the shorts or dress for a breezy maxi skirt with high splits to show off your tan and a pair of woven slides.
Maxi skirts for winter can be made warmer by layering over leggings tucked into boots. Throw on a long coat or cardigan over a maxi skirt with knee high boots or pair a pleated maxi skirt with a soft knit jumper and block heels for a style that’s ready for the office or the café.
