You probably already have a pile of long skirts in your closet, which are never worn because you don’t know how to take them from plain boho to sexy! And that’s why I’m writing this.

Long skirts suit nearly every body type, style and personality. If paired right, they can create a signature look or a chic statement style. They can be worn as party wear outfits, casuals and even to office! Let’s take a look at how to wear maxi skirts with different types of tops:

Pair up with #1: Crop Tops

Crop tops paired with long skirts can be worn either for parties (Sarah Hyland below) or casually. For a party outfit, pick an elegant flared maxi skirt in a solid color, and pair it with either a matching or a contrasting fitted top. For casual outfits, pick something, maybe pastels and pair it with a loose top (like Kendall Jenner below).

Match with #2: Strapless Tops

Strapless or tube tops look hot and sizzling paired with maxi skirts. Add a slit and a red lipstick to turn the heat up even more! Great for anything from your friend’s bacholerette party to a special dinner with your boyfriend.

How To Wear Maxi Skirts #3: Go Monochromatic

If you wanna be on the safer side, try a tone-on-tone outfit with your maxi skirt. I love the Rihanna’s look where she pairs a black monochromatic off shoulder top.

Pair up with #4:Tees

Try a tee with your long skirt for a really casual street-style look. It can be a loose or a fitted tee. It’s great for when you want to wear asymmetric or slit maxi skirts casually, because tees balance their sexy-factor.

Blend with #5: Jackets

Wear a cool t-shirt or a tank top and give a new look to it by wearing a simple textured vest or a denim jacket. I love Blake Lively‘s Gossip Girl look here.

Maxi Skirts for Office #6: Pair with Shirts

If you want to charge up your work wardrobe and make it more glam, or you want to pick something formal yet unique for a work party, select a neutral-colored straight-cut maxi skirt and pair it with a formal white shirt.

Pair up With #7: Tank Tops

Give a casual look to your skirt by pairing it with a tank top a la Jennifer Lawrence here, who matches a white flared maxi skirt with a grey tank top and overized sunglasses.

Wear with #8: Bodysuits

If you need a styling piece that makes you look curvy even when wearing a long skirt, invest in a bodysuit. As versatile as they come, bodysuits go with jeans, shorts and just as well with maxi skirts.

Wear with #9: Turtleneck Tops

Turtlenecks create a unique signature statement and make everything a bit more formal. So if you want to pair a plain old skirt with something for a party, go for turtlenecks. The color block outfit of Victoria Beckham here is a great inspiration.
