How to wear the item of the season: the maxi skirt

7 March 2023

As spring approaches, we start peeling off layers of clothes, adding brighter colours to our looks, and finding the new pieces that are going to become statements in our wardrobes. The first piece you should invest in is the maxi skirt.

Designers all agreed that this style needed a well-deserved comeback. And they did so, in many imaginative ways, from the simple and streamlined at Max Mara to the floor-sweeping neon at Saint Laurent. For a deep dive into the maxi skirt, read Anna Gooss take on the trend here.

But how to wear this trend in your day-to-day? Here are four ways how to style the maxi skirt this Spring.

1. Tank top + oversized shirt + trainers

Treat the skirt as you will your favourite jeans and wear with a simple tank top, oversized shirt and trainers.

2. Bright top + barely-there sandals

A black maxi skirt can be easily pair with your favourite bright hue and minimal sandals for a super chic evening outfit.

3. One colour head to toe

This will instantly visually elongate your figure and it's a great way of wearing that satin long skirt.

4. Biker jacket + heels

The only rule to succeed is that the biker jacket needs to be oversized and the skirt should be fitted and extra long.
