I was standing in my closet the other day for about 30 minutes trying to style my new maxi skirt (#thingsIshouldhavethoughtaboutbeforebuying). But luckily I did buy it and didn’t give in, because there are cute ways to wear maxi skirts. Although it does take a little effort and a few tips, you’ll be sure to master the maxi in no time.
If you’re like most women, a simple tank top matches every maxi skirt you own, but there are easy ways to take your
boring outfit and make it stand out.
1. Tie up your shirt.
Maxi skirts will completely take away all the shape on the lower half of your body. A great way to give yourself a waist is to tie your button-down or t-shirt.
2. Belt it.
If you want to give the illusion of a longer leaner waist, wear a shirt over your skirt that stops below your hips and add a belt to the smallest part of your waist.
3. Add a layer.
Jean jackets, blazers and vests will all look great with a maxi skirt. You can go for cropped versions to accentuate your waist.
4. Be loose.
Whether it’s a sweater or a t-shirt, it’s ok to wear your clothes loose every once in a while. A great tip for making this work, is to play up the look with fun accessories.
