I’m a Maxi-Skirt Fan—These Are the Only Tops I Think They Look Nice With

Skirts have gone to extremes this year. With the mini going micro (thanks to Miu Miu) and maxis making a return, the world is your oyster when it comes to which style to choose. But autumn is fast approaching, so the maxi seems more appealing right now. You may remember styling a denim iteration in the ’00s with a disk belt (how could we ever forget them?), and now, they’re back. Thankfully, disk belts haven’t returned, but denim maxi skirts have certainly been spotted recently. They seem to pair particularly well with silky tops. I’m also seeing the fashion set wearing bias-cut slip styles, often with a shirt tied at the waist. (See Monikh‘s look below.)

The hard part isn’t choosing which maxi skirt to wear—it’s which top to wear with it. The longer length can make baggier tops swamp a smaller frame, and some basics such as vests can look odd tucked in. As a fan of the maxi skirt for the second time around (I was the person wearing them with the low-slung belts), I can tell you they don’t look good with every top. So to make it easier for everyone to try out this new (old) trend, I’ve listed the four tops that look best with maxi skirts below.
