Style maxi skirts differently!

Welcome back, dolls! Let’s take an adventure down the road of maxi skirts. However, before we can really start our adventure, let’s take a look at how this carefree article of clothing came into existence. The maxi skirt first hit the scene around 1968 thanks to Oscar de la Renta at the Elizabeth Arden Fashion Show in New York. This iconic design was then published in The New York Times, and really the maxi skirt has been in style ever since.

However, once the 70’s hit, maxi skirts faded a bit in the public eye, but they made a massive resurgence in the late 90s. This latest incarnation focuses on the bohemian feel of the 60s with a better shape for all bodies.

Maxi shirts are a great addition for any season because you can add layers to them, wear various types of shoes with them, and they come in so many prints and colors. The key here is finding the material and print that works for you. Also, there are a lot of give-in maxi skirts, so you’ll usually find them in sizes like medium or even one size fits all. If you’re feeling little bloated, maxi skirts are forgiving and are great to have on hand.

Some skirts offer high waist options, and their length means you can even wear them as a dress! If a dress isn’t an option, but the length is a bit too much, then tie it off at the bottom. Let’s look at some fun ways to style your maxi skirt, plus some maxi skirts that will rock your socks off!

So let’s back up to a softer, more traditional maxi skirt with a twist. We all know that these past years, everyone had something for cargo pants. This has extended and created cargo maxi skirts that are perfect for summer or spring to get an edgy look while using a skirt. Now, this can be paired with an all-black top and a cardigan if you want that free-spirited vibe. Additionally, some long necklaces would look great layered with this outfit. One of the best things about maxi skirts is the versatile nature of the prints and usage.

Maxi Skirt With Pockets


Next up we have a maxi skirt that may just be the answer to your fashion prayers. Let us present to you the maxi skirt with pockets! Yes ladies, there are skirts that have deep pockets that can hold your trinkets, and that is definitely a bonus.

Remember, maxi skirts are not just for spring and summer. If you layer the maxi skirt correctly, you can have some awesome and weather-approved looks. Maxi skirts, like this one, also pair well with boots or even Doc Martens. The looks are endless and can be individualized to the wearer.
