1. Sheer Maxi Skirt
As a big fan of layering and combining colors, patterns, and styles, I love that the girly look of a flowy skirt and a simple white top, when matched with a big black leather bag and studded ankle boots, actually works to bring out the black in her outfit. We’ve seen many cut-off maxi skirts this season like the one above. If your cut-off maxi skirt is not made out of flowy material but is tight, try wearing them sideways like Ivania does below.

2. Jersey Maxi Skirt

Even a jersey maxi dress that you lounge around in at home could be worn in a classy way, if not casual. Pair it with a blazer. Because of the tight fit of most jersey maxi dresses, I would prefer a t-shirt to a dress shirt.
3. Working Women's Maxi Skirt
Pair your solid-colored maxi skirt with a dress shirt. This could work with a pair of wide leg pants as well. You could tuck out the shirt as shown in the picture, or tuck it in and belt it. It will just depend on the fit and waistline of the skirt.
I love the look above from 2011 Paris Fashion week. It works with your regular, throw-in-everything office bag, or a portfolio with a smaller purse on your shoulder. Keep the shoes classy. I would go for wedges or heels for the summer, and ankle boots like Peony’s for the spring and fall.
Yoko Ono’s dress for New York’s 2012 spring fashion week is one of the few styles that speak the personality. It is reserved yet fun, classic and young. She shows the perfect amount of skin, wears plain sandals to accentuate the flowers, and the flower hat makes everything flow. I thought this look would be a great inspiration for maxi dress lovers. I can easily imagine myself wearing my favorite scarf with bold prints over a black maxi dress. Thanks for reading!
