When you think of a maxi skirt you probably don’t think of it as a night out wardrobe piece but rather as something casual and easy-going.  However, there’s more on how to wear a maxi skirt than conventional wisdom suggests. I would like to share some tips that could maximize the wear of your maxi skirt so you have more versatility for you summer staple.


DAY: Casual!

Think casual pieces like tee’s and sandals (wedges or flats). To make the look current and more interesting  accessories your head with a floppy hat or fedora. A funky necklace or layered bangles would complete the look. You could also opt for a hand chain like I did in the graphic below which will show everyone that you are a true fashionista. This outfit is great for a BBQ, brunch as well as a shopping trip.

NIGHT: Dressy!

Think night time materials and jewelry pieces that are fancy. A silky cami with a statement necklace or earrings and sexy heels will transform your maxi skirt from a daytime summer staple to a stylish night on the town. Complete with a bright lipstick to take the look up a notch. I went for a simple clutch since I styled my look with a bold body chain, vibrant top and lips.
