Aahhhh the maxi dress. The way moms can still kinda-sorta wear yoga pants but all the while look like they’re dressed up. They are, after all, crotchless yoga pants you know. Some very brilliant woman was like, “I want to be comfortable like I’m wearing yoga pants but not actually be wearing yoga pants.” And the maxi skirt was born.
They really are perfect and can be worn a ton of ways. Today I am going to show you how to wear a maxi skirt three different ways.
Casual everyday Look
Let’s start with the obvious maxi look — the everyday black maxi that goes with just about anything, old Beatles tank top and some casual kicks that you can’t see. A pair of Converse here would work just fine. You’re comfy, cute and still wearing a skirt. You could even throw on a ball cap and head to your kid’s game, it’s that versatile!
I just realized you can see my son in the reflection taking this picture. So funny! I wonder what he’s gonna think in a couple years about taking pictures of his mom’s outfits…. Anyway! This is a little more dressed up. The material of the skirt is still very comfortable but I paired it with a nicer top that scoops low in the back and a pair of strappy sandals. I love the thin yellow belt to tie it all together. And just like that you’re ready for a summer wedding.
As a Dress
This has to be one of my favorites. I actually wore this to church today. This maxi skirt is a little on the shorter side for me (I’m 6 ft tall), so instead of giving it the boot, I just pulled it all the way up, slapped a belt on and BAM I have a super cute dress! It is even somewhat of a high-low dress because of the way you pull it up. This can easily be paired with a cute jean jacket or light sweater. I like my booties with it because they match the belt, but you could also pair it with sandals as well.
So there you have it! Three ways to wear a maxi skirt. Like I mentioned, there are a ton of other options for sure, this is just to get you started.
