When picking maxi skirts off the racks, go for casual styles like A-line, full, button-front and such as accordion skirts, pencil skirts, and tulle skirts often look too dressy for your street looks. Though they can me styled in a casual way, it would be easier for you to start with casual styles working on your way up, especially if you’re not used to wearing maxi skirts in your casual looks. Black and gray casual maxi skirts tend to be the most versatile to pair your casual or dressy tops in your wardrobe. Also, maxi skirts made from neoprene, knitted jersey, and denim are perfect to creating your casual-chic style.

Casual-chic doesn’t mean you can’t wear your sophisticated tops with your maxi skirts. Just avoid the tops you’re wearing when attending to glamorous parties, weddings, and formal celebrations. A chiffon sleeveless button-down shirt can be a great option over a long sleeved one, and a silk crop top over a fitted silk blouse. Keep your looks breezy and cool to avoid looking too formal for a casual setting. Think of casual accessories you can wear with your outfit like a straw hat, a casual tote bag, and even a beaded necklace.

To dress down your too glamorous maxi skirts like tulle, sequin, and chiffon pair them with casual tops. Tank tops, knitted sweater, graphic tops, crop tops, and chambray shirt can be your option to top off your outfit. So you can leave off your motorcycle jackets and denim jackets if it’s too hot to wear. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, you may balance the glamorous look of your black tulle skirt by pairing it with a slouchy and casual tank top. If it feels too sexy for you, then trade your tank tops to knitted sweater or off shoulder tops that still look sexy without baring too much skin.

Opting for maxi skirts with creative prints can be a stylish way to look effortless on your street style. Just stick to versatile patterns like stripes, chevron, gingham, checks, and even tropical ones that effortlessly look cool over houndstooth, brocade, and animal prints. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, opt for gingham print maxi skirt and pair it with a cropped button-down shirt. Look breezy in your outfit by going for floral or tropical prints and pair it with your tank top perfect for casual walks in the town.

To look casual-chic in your street style, wear your maxi skirt in a trendy and informal style. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, a knitted sweater worn with casual maxi skirt topped with a chic beanie and scarf can take your casual-chic outfit from day to night. Wear your crisp button-down shirt casually like Margaret Zhang did, by wearing it half-tucked on your maxi skirt while leaving its buttons half-buttoned. Skip those dressy pumps and stiletto sandals, and resort to wedges, gladiators, espadrilles, sneakers, or even sandal booties to make them look more casual. Also, a leather tote, slouchy hobo bag, drawstring bucket bag, and an upscale backpack can be fashionable too.

Indeed, maxi skirts will not only take you to glamorous parties but also to your casual weekends looking feminine and casual-chic on your fashion style.
