How to Style a Black Maxi Skirt

how to style a black maxi skirtI think I’ve said it before, but I’m not afraid to say it again. I love dressing for the weekend. I have a little more time in the mornings to get started and take some creative liberties with my outfit, hair and makeup. I also like brainstorming what looks to shoot for the blog. It really helps me explore all outfit options in my closet- especially when I’m on a budget. Today, I’m styling this black maxi skirt for a casual weekend look.

I’ve worn this weekend vibes tee twice already on the blog (here and here). Hope you don’t mind. 😉 It’s seriously a favorite of mine on the weekends. It’s so soft and comfortable. I honestly think it was meant for a pajama top (sure looks like it on the model every time I link to it) but it’s too cute to keep under the covers. I thought I’d mix it up this time by wearing it tied. Does that count? Haha!

Side note, my husband (for whatever reason) doesn’t like the term maxi so I have to call it a long skirt. Anyone else’s husband have weird quirks when it comes to fashion? He’s a goof, but he takes my pictures, so I comply.

I sometimes have difficulty styling my maxi skirt so that it doesn’t look frumpy. Do you have this problem too? I find it goes best with a fitted top, sandals or wedges, and a jacket in cooler weather.

I’m so excited to bust out the espadrilles and my pom-pom clutch from last spring/summer. I’ve linked similar styles below, and my clutch comes in multiple colors.
