13 Ways To Style Denim Maxi Skirt

Denim skirts are officially back in full swing; it’s time to get one ( if you haven’t already) and join the trend. If you already have one but aren’t sure how to style a denim maxi skirt so you can flaunt it, this post is for you. 

The maxi denim skirts are our current faves, so we will show you 13 different ways you can style them to make a fashion statement for every occasion.

Are Denim Maxi Skirts in Style This Year?

Yes! They are the craze right now. The best part about denim maxi skirts is that you can wear them all year round if you know how to style them for the different seasons. You just have to switch up the tops and the shoes according to the season, and you are good to go.

How To Choose A Denim Maxi Skirt 

Bet you’ve seen the many styles and shapes of denim maxi and midi skirts available. One thing to remember is that one style or shape doesn’t fit all, so it’s important to know what will suit you most based on your body type.

Denim, by its nature, is heavy, so you can easily look frumpy if you don’t get it right with the style and length. Truth be told, some women will look great with a full-on maxi, while others will look more flattered with a midi instead.

Here are some tips to consider when choosing a denim midi or maxi skirt:

Consider your body type

If you are a petite woman, we suggest a midi skirt. A maxi will make you look overwhelmed in your small body frame. On the other hand, if you are a curvy woman, you can go for a maxi or midi as long as it’s figure-hugging and made of a lighter, thinner denim fabric. 

If you are tall, we suggest a maxi denim skirt to really flaunt the trend, but if you prefer to flaunt your long legs instead, get yourself a midi. 

Determine the style

As you may be aware by now, denim skirts come in various styles. A maxi denim can be straight, A-line, or slim fit. Before picking one, decide which of these styles will flatter you the most.

Denim fabric quality

The quality of a denim skirt is determined by the quality of the denim fabric used to make it. We suggest you go for a high-quality denim. It is generally more comfortable, plus you will get more wear from it as it’s very durable.

Consider the design

You can go for the classic denim blue, white, or grey jeans or even opt for the washed-out or distressed effect. It all comes down to what appearance you are looking for, but a classic denim blue is the timeless design.

Consider the size and fit

Choose a denim skirt that fits your body well. A small fitting will leave you cursing all day, while a big size will leave you looking frumpy and aged.

Consider matching items in your wardrobe

While a denim skirt is versatile, you still have to make sure you have various items to pair it with. These can be tank tops, button-up shirts, basic tees, sweaters, or jackets. 

What Tops Go with Denim Maxi Skirts?

Now that you know what style and length to go for, let’s help you with how to style. Fortunately, denim maxi skirts are versatile; they pair well with pretty much any top and blouse you can think of.

Here are some styling inspos to get you started.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Graphic Tee

For a casual yet chic style, you can pair your maxi denim skirt with a graphic tee and throw on a chunky piece of jewelry and sandals heels for a more elevated look. This look is very easy to pull, and it’s the kind of look you can rock to casual business meetings or brunch with workmates.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Cropped Tee

If you want to infuse some urban edge into your outfit, pair your denim maxi skirt with a cropped tee. It’s one of the basic ways to style any denim. 

Complete the look with pointed sandal heels and a few statement accessories like a pair of your favorite designer sunglasses, and you have a perfect outfit for a day out in the city or a casual evening with friends.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a White button up

A white button shirt is a staple in every wardrobe, so this is rather a very basic look as well yet very stylish and elegant. Tuck in your crisp, white button-down shirt into your denim maxi or even midi skirt, add a sleek brown leather belt to define your waist, and choose a matching brown leather boot, and you have a perfect look for a dinner date or a semi-formal event.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Spaghetti Strap Top

This look is perfect for a daytime shopping spree or a relaxed lunch date with friends on a hot summer day. You can switch the pink spaghetti top with a neutral shade like ivory or blush for a versatile and timeless look, or get a longer spaghetti top and tuck it into the waistband of your denim maxi skirt to highlight your figure.

Complete the outfit with a pair of strappy gold sandals heels for a refined and polished appearance and you have a blend of comfort and style.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Turtleneck Bodysuit and a Long Coat

For a winter or fall look, you can combine your denim maxi skirt with a nude long coat for a polished and timeless style or any long coat in complementary colors, such as camel, gray, or navy. 

Opt for a cozy turtleneck in a matching shade for the upper half to create a harmonious color palette. Tuck in the turtleneck top to accentuate your waist and let the coat flow gracefully over the denim skirt to create an elegant and elongated effect, then complete the look with a pair of knee-high boots. 

Remember, the trick to nailing this elegant look is to choose a well-fitted, straight denim skirt.

White Denim Maxi Skirt With a Black Bomber Jacket

Got a crisp white denim maxi skirt? Pair it with a  sleek black bomber jacket. The black bomber jacket adds an edgy and urban touch to the white denim skirt. 

Opt for a high-waisted skirt for a more flattering silhouette, and choose a bomber jacket with a slightly cropped length for a cool vibe. This is a perfect look for a night out, a casual dinner, or a weekend event. 

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Cropped Button-up Shirt

If you want an effortlessly cool and fashion-forward look, pair your denim maxi skirt with a cropped white tee and a cropped button-up shirt. The cropped look accentuates the high-rise nature of the denim maxi skirt, creating a more flattering and defined silhouette. You can even roll up the sleeves of the shirt for a more casual vibe and choose a cropped button-up shirt with a fun pattern or bold colors to add a touch of personality.

Complete this outfit with comfortable espadrilles, sneakers, or ankle boots, of course, depending on the occasion, then add a few simple accessories like a delicate necklace or a wristwatch to enhance the overall charm of the outfit.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Bandeau Top

Another great way to get a summer look with a denim skirt is to pair it with a bandeau top. Preferably a top in a vibrant color or a playful pattern to add a pop of personality to your ensemble. We like this look with a layer of a lightweight kimono, as it gives the outfit a touch of bohemian flair.

This outfit is perfect for a beach day, a summer festival, or any casual outdoor gathering where you want to exude effortless summery style.

Denim Maxi Skirt With an Oversized Blazer 

Pair your maxi denim skirt with an oversized blazer if you want to rock a formal casual kinda look. Opt for a structured blazer in a neutral tone like black, gray, or camel to create a polished and versatile look, and choose a well-fitted top, like a tucked-in blouse or a simple fitted tee, to balance the volume of the oversized blazer. 

For this look, you can play around with accessories like a sleek handbag or minimalist jewelry to enhance the overall elegance of the outfit.

Denim Maxi Skirt and a Knit Sweater

When we say a denim maxi can be paired with literally everything in your wardrobe, we mean exactly that. See how well it pairs with the chunky knit sweater. It’s giving a warm, cozy, comfortable, and stylish.

Even better, tuck the front of the sweater into the waistband of the skirt to define your silhouette, accessorize with a black belt to add a touch of detail, and then complete the look with knee-high black boots. This is the kind of look to rock on a casual day out in the fall or to a laid-back dinner with friends in winter.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Fitting Black Bodysuit

We love this look for its simple yet elegant vibe. The fitted bodysuit with a plunging neckline really gives it a touch of flair while allowing the denim skirt to take center stage. We prefer this simple denim, but you can choose a skirt with a modern twist, such as button details or a subtle slit, to add interest to the outfit. And for an extra dose of edge, add a black statement belt and complete the look with black strappy heels and a pair of your favorite sunglasses.

Denim Maxi Skirt With a Sweatshirt

Don’t you love how the denim skirt pairs extremely well with the cozy sweatshirt? It’s giving a warm, laid-back, and effortlessly cool look. You can opt for either a classic crewneck or an oversized sweatshirt, but we like the latter the most.

There are no rules when it comes to the color of the sweatshirt, you can go for a neutral tone, a pop of color, or a graphic print to add a playful touch. It all depends on what you prefer.

Also, you can tuck the front of the sweatshirt into the waistband, let the sweatshirt hang loosely for an easygoing vibe, roll up the sleeves, or opt for a cropped sweatshirt for added style.

*Tip – Add a baseball cap or a beanie for a sporty or urban edge.

You can rock this look to a weekend outing, a relaxed day with friends, or even a casual movie night.
