Lately I’ve been all about comfort. When I’m not dressed up for work, I want to be comfortable, but I needed to master a look that while comfortable, didn’t look sloppy. The answer: The Splendid Maxi Skirt in black. Buy it here.
Reasonably priced at $88, this skirt is super soft and well made. Now came the challenge of styling an outfit that didn’t make me look like a tree-hugging, birkenstock wearing hippy. I paired my black maxi skirt with a denim button-down layered under a more form fitting grey and navy blue striped sweater. If layering makes you nervous, match the color of your skirt to the same color top. Black on black is a sure thing. White on white for summer always works too.
Need more inspiration? Here are some more of my favorite maxi skirt styles.
TIP: Make sure your shirt or sweater (top layer) falls above the wide part of your hips. Your top should be the length that allows you to lift your arms above your head without your stomach showing but no longer or else you will look frumpy and Amish.
