32 Ways to Style Maxi Skirts

Hi Everyone,

How was your weekend? I just stayed cozily at home this weekend. One because my mum-in-law is visiting us and second because there was a downpour in Delhi. I decided to avoid the insane Delhi traffic jams. πŸ˜› From next weekend I’d probably go to office. I have been lazy for the past few weeks and have stayed at home. πŸ˜€


Once a friend of mine and I were shopping at Zara and she asked me ‘ what is one item in your closet that you love wearing the most?’ I said ‘maxi skirts or maxi dresses’. I absolutely love maxi dresses/ skirts. They are becoming my signature style in real life. So, today’s post is all about maxi skirts. There are a ton of ways you can wear them both in summers and winters. Hope you like the post. πŸ™‚

Have a great week ahead everyone. πŸ™‚


1. Love this pairing of simple sleeveless button down with beautiful sunset yellow maxi skirt.



2. To balance out the volume of the maxi skirt, pair it with a fitted top and add statement accessories ( sunglasses, neckpiece)



3. pair maxi skirt with a denim jacket.

4. this is a maxi dress but I loved the combination of royal blue dress, matching shoes and chartreuse green shrug.



5. An oversize open button down for a casual day out.



6. a high low sleeveless button down with a maxi skirt.



7. I am not sure if I’d want to pair my maxi skirt with a matching bra but I think Kareena pulled it off well. Could be one of the options if you are feeling too bold. πŸ˜‰



8. A side split maxi skirt cinched at the waist with golden belt. Layered necklaces totally add to the outfit.



9. Match the color of your accessories with a maxi skirt.



10. crochet top and tan belt.


11. pair it with a cropped leather jacket.



12. another one with a leather jacket.



13. pair your maxi skirt with a feminine grey cashmere.



14. maxi skirt with vest.



15. I wish this photograph was coloured. But I loved the slouchy laid back look of both the top and the maxi skirt.Β maxi-skirt-11


16. side split maxi skirt with a crop top and a loose oversize cardigan. Do ut only if you are very skinny.



17. keep accessories in same tone – in this case Β ‘tan’.



18. pair a flouncy maxi skirt with a fitted jacket.



18. pair with with a chambray shirt.



19. A very clever styling – matched spikes of shoe with the bag.



20. Winter styling of maxi skirts with long coats, blazers and trench coats.



21. pair your maxi skirts with cut out ankle boots in winters.



22. pair it with a long over size sweater.



23. Loved this style of pairing maxi skirt with shirt and a V neck jumper.


24.A scarf is always a good idea.



25. Play with the colors in same family.


26- 30 And these are some of the ways I have styled my maxi skirts. Have also worn maxi dresses in previous outfits. You may check them out through lookbook. πŸ™‚

    awesome post rati , cant get skirts out of my head now πŸ˜›
    and u look lovely in the green skirt at home, saw it after so many days πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Rati,

    Love your post as usual… I just have a very small query to it. All the pics and suggestions will look on people with balanced body proportions, but would have been great if you can write down with some pictures as to how can a Plus size person wear a maxi.

    • Rati says:

      We as far as maxi skirts go, I used to dress up pretty much the same way when I was not as fit as I am today. Blazers, and shrugs go especially well for plus size women. I’d say keep the upper part fitted since the maxi skirt is long and loose, you wouldn’t want to drown yourself in layers. Hope that helps. πŸ™‚

  3. Sahiba says:

    lovelyy poshht… i loved 8,9,11,23 and yours 26th.. the one with the fitted black and white skirt…loved them completely… but i am always scared trying maxi skirts.. i tried once recently and i think it made me look chubbier… πŸ˜› guess will try with a fitted top next time… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Sahiba says:

      oh my the ones you posted now are tooo cute specially the yellow one… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • Rati says:

        Thank you sahiba, look for A line maxi skirts. They are very flattering on curvy bodies. :)) the straight and pleated ones can make you look chubbier sometimes.

  4. Sindhu Hegde says:

    Wonderful Post I was just thinking about buying a skirt.I wanted a one suggestion from you.Am short(5.2),will the skirts make me look even more short?

    • Rati says:

      no not at all. You can also go for side split maxi skirts. You can pair them with wedges or low heels if you are too conscious about your height. and cinch the skirt on your waist, that would give shape your body. It’s all about balancing out your outfit :))

  5. rituparna says:

    awsm post rati di.. i bought a wrapper skirt (for da first tym), its somewhat mixture of orange n yellow.. plz suggest me what tops to pair with it and also da colour.. plzzzz

    • Rati says:

      you can pair it with white/off white as shown in the 1st pic above or you can pick up a color from your skirt and wear the top in the same color. Or you can color block it. And style, just experiment with any of the style shown above and see what works the best for your body type. πŸ™‚

    Hi Rati,

    Lovely compilation… πŸ™‚ I love maxi skirts totally..super comfortable and easy to carry πŸ™‚ I have a skirt similar to what you wore at home, the design n color is different though…and I m always wondering how to style them….I usually wear a plain top with it….do u think a short kurta would look good with an ethnic maxi skirt? and I see you love skirts from cottons.. πŸ™‚ where can I find cottons store in delhi-ncr?

  9. Fantastic post as usual. I can’t get enough of my maxi skirts for the season. The roundup looks so much fun and everything in one post. Jessica Alba, is my favorite and she is a stylish person who knows what she’s doing.
    I love the way you’ve styled your skirts too, very beautiful. I especially love the ethnic touches. lovely.
    Have a great day Rati.
