We all know about the mini skirt. It has had songs written about it, and it’s never far from our collective fashion consciousness. Hundreds of movies and TV episodes in the last couple of decades featured someone wearing a mini skirt to sexy effect. While the mini skirt is great, we shouldn’t forget about its sister, the maxi, also called the long skirt. While it’s not seen as brash as the mini, the long skirt can be sexy and flexible enough to go with many outfits. Here are 9 long skirt outfits that will always be trendy.
Vertical stripes are a staple when it comes to long skirts. They have a way of elongating the figure, which makes them a perfect pattern for a skirt that lights your curves and hides your legs. You can choose any color and wear a plain white t-shirt or tank top for a pleasing contrast. If the weather is chilly, throw on a light or leather jacket. This look goes well with boots, but you can also pull off shoes. It makes the perfect outfit for a fall day or a day when it might fluctuate between cool and warm.
Maxi Skirt With Off-Shoulder Top
When you go to a formal or semi-formal event, you want to look sexy yet elegant. The mini skirt can’t always pull that off, and the weather might not be appropriate. Luckily you have the option of a maxi to come through for those events, You could start with a solid color, like burgundy or yellow. Then, pair it with a lace top for a look that is both sexy and classy. You can also show some bosom if you’d like. For some added pop or to draw eyes, a skirt with a slit will give you a chance to give a hint of your legs underneath.
Casual and Breezy
You can absolutely get away with a maxi during the summer, especially when you want to protect your skin from the sun. A casual outfit involves a long light skirt that allows the breeze to penetrate. That way, it can keep you cool while you’re out on the town. Pair it with a graphic or patterned t-shirt and some sneakers, and you’re ready for a casual day with friends. If the sun is up, then consider a baseball cap. This outfit will also look great with sandals.
If you want a more elegant look, then a pleated pastel could be just the ticket. Pastels have undertones of pink, peach, yellow, light blue, and mint green, for example. The skirt looks great when paired with a patterned tee and sandals for a bit of a bohemian look, add some chunk jewelry and a fedora for the complete package. You can also pair it with a blouse and more subtle jewellry for a garden party or a semi-formal event.
To pull off a sexy vibe, you can’t go wrong with a pleated black sheer skirt. Wear black booty shorts underneath so that they’re visible, and you’ll give off a hint that you’re revealing something without actually revealing it. You can also wear an inner mini skirt, giving the same impression. The sheer fabric is only appropriate in hot weather. Show off your mid-drift with a tank top with a hint of lace and cleavage. You’ll certainly turn heads walking down the street without feeling like you’re showing too much. This outfit is perfect for someone with a petite frame.
When spring comes along, you want flowers. Flowers on the ground, and flower patterns on your skirt. Much like a sundress, a flowy, flowery skirt complements the weather and gives off a fun and flirty vibe. It is best paired with a white tank and jean jacket in case the weather seems cool. If you’re confident in the weather, then wear any solid top without the jean jacket for a pleasing contrast. Feel free to show a hint of midriff for a hint of sexiness.
Long skirt outfits aren’t just for having fun. We have to go into the office sometimes, and the maxi has plenty of looks that are more than appropriate. To be bold, wear a zebra print skirt paired with a collared shirt. The shirt can be plain white or black, but if you’re feeling wild, choose a bold color like yellow. To finish off the look, wear a brown trenchcoat on your shoulders. This outfit can be accessorized with strappy shoes and chunky jewelry. You will be loud and command attention with the outfit.
The 90s are coming back in a big way, including the love of denim. Denim skirts were a staple of teenage fashion back then, and now those kids are adults and wearing similar styles. For the grownup version, pair it with a colorful patterned top. Back in the 90s, it would have been worn with a belly shirt and sandals, which are both appropriate now. If you want some comfort, wear sneakers for a truly relaxed look. However, strappy sandals will work as well.
Sometimes we want to look like take-no-prisoners boss babes. Well, here’s an outfit that will do just that. Choose a flowy, beige, or neutral skirt with a black halter top. You will at once look feminine but still sporty and tough. You can wear flats if you feel your feminine side, or go with the sporty look and strap on some clean white sneakers. This outfit is versatile and can be worn on the way to the gym or on the way to the office.
As you can see, there is so much you can do with a long skirt. Not only that, but these looks are timeless, so they will always stay in style.
