For the Love of Maxi Skirts

Posted on: January 30, 2017

I think the reason I was so inspired about my recent Nina Proudman obsession , 

is because of her so many outfits with maxi dresses and skirts… 

So I decided to go through my own looks with maxi skirts to see where I’ve been 

as  I look forward to where I’d like to be going with my love of maxi skirts… 

Warning I made this longer than I anticipated…

I wore this outfit this Fall, but could easily change it up to add

boots for a more Nina Inspired winter outfit..

Here, it’s hard to see , but I took a basic graphic tee

and tied a pink sash around my waist to blouse it a bit..

I think a white maxi is so versatile for Summer and have barely

scratched the surface of ways to style it…

A tucked in crotchet detail top, has a bit of boho charm without being over the top.

Paired with wedges for summer here, but I could add a leather jacket

and boots to winterize this one.

a velvet floral top and obi belt made this plain skirt 

appropriate for a special date night .

A gingham top, knotted at the waist 

is a very casual weekend way I wore a maxi

This orange skirt isn’t quite long enough to qualify as a maxi skirt, but 

the idea of a striped tank and denim vest is a sound one for a maxi skirt look.

A striped straight maxi skirt with peplum t-shirt 

and classic jean jacket…

Switching my sandals to navy suede boots with 

make this a great Nina Proudman inspired version. 

If only I hadn’t gained weight, lol as I couldn’t fit this skirt right now…

This striped one with white jean jacket, might just be one of 

my all time favorite looks….

With a thrifted crotchet detail sweater.   

I think I’d like to take a nod from Nina Proudman 

and lighten this look up with a white top instead of the black. 

IMG_3951

This is a maxi dress with a sweater over top, and jean jacket, 

another favorite. 

This could easily be more Nina inspired by adding in boots and a scarf.

This black top was another outfit I wore for a date night.  

 I like this as is and wouldn’t change a thing, 

except to perhaps wear one of my sister’s necklaces. 

white maxi

This time I patterned mixed with polka dot sweater 

and floral wedges.  This showcases a very different side of me

that is not at all boho, lol

If I switched my with slip on sneakers for grey 

suede tall boots, it would be a great Nina inspired version.

Imagine how many different bright solid colored scarves could be 

added to make this a very versatile outfit formula.

Once again switching mu flats for boots and adding 

a scarf would add more boho chic flair I am craving…

IMG_1902

These colors just scream Fall to me…

I’d love to try this skirt with a pair of boots, sweater and scarf too.

  This version with a bomber jacket and flats… 

I’d like to try this one with my red leather jacket and boots for winter. 

IMG_0485

A cute ruffled neckline t-shirt and vest. 

I think a light kimono over the t-shirt in the shorter lengths 

that Nina Proudman wears a lot , would be a great way to switch 

this to a more boho inspired version. 

IMG_0396

I absolutely adored this when I wore it.  

I loved these short sleeve sweaters, but feel they are more 

conservative than I’d like these days…

I hope to try this with a kimono type sweater.   

goldentote

A  lace baseball shirt , is definitely a surprise to 

pair with a maxi skirt.  

Layering a few necklaces might make up the boho vibe of this look. 

IMG_3186

This one I actually paired with boots and a scarf, lol 

If I had paired this with a jean jacket, it would be more Nina Proudman style. 

I think my maxi lengths for flats don’t work to well with boots, 

so perhaps that is why I haven’t done this more often and a problem

I’d need to solve….

IMG_3162

Well this makes 20 outfits with maxi’s so I think

it’s time to stop, lol…

I think this open weave jacket is boho enough to keep for my

new direction of how I would like to wear maxi skirts. 

and a good thing too as I own it in hot pink and yellow as well.  

Dear Readers, If you made it this far reading this, 

Thanks for hanging in as I went down memory lane to see where I have been 

as I begin to switch my style as I look forward to Spring and Summer…

Love your maxi skirt outfits!

Thank you, it was a lot of fun to go back a few years and see them all…

I really appreciated this post, as it gave me so many ideas. I’m still never quite sure of how to style our maxis, but I love this inspiration, Tracey!!

Thank you, I actually became very aware that although I am a petite, my long legs really make finding a maxi that reaches the ground is not easy….

So many cute looks. I think my favs are the striped skirt with the white jean jacket and the one with the lace baseball shirt. You look great in hats, also!

Thank you , Lisa. Yes the lace baseball t-shirt came with the skirt when I tried out Golden Tote for the first time, so of course I had to try it together…

Normally I do not wear long skirts. After seeing the cute ways you have styled I may branch out.
Thank you for sharing these cute looks
I can’t pick just one favorite!!!

thank you , it really is a big impact to see all the ways I’ve styled them at once…

I love maxi calipers, too. I loved seeing how you styled yours.

Wow, what a great collection of maxi skirt outfits! I was going to mention my favorites, but my list got too long. ha You definitely know how to rock this style.

Lol, I am going to have so much fun trying to finesse a bit more boho tops to up my maxi skirt style…
