A maxi skirt is a staple in any woman's wardrobe. They come in a wide range of colours, lengths, styles and can be worn to a number of occasions from work to weekends and formal events.

So easy and versatile, these breezy pieces aren't just for sun-drenched summer days. They can be worn year-round and dressed up with accessories, jewellery and high heels!

It can be hard to figure out what to wear with a maxi skirt at times. Maybe you think it's too cold in winter to wear one. We are here to help you style your maxi skirt for all seasons.

What Kind of Tops Go With Maxi Skirts?
