I’ve had this black maxi for several years, but I haven’t worn it much. I think it must have migrated to the back of my closet! Does that ever happen to you? I pulled it out recently and decided to give it new life with these easy black maxi skirt outfits for summer. But first, let me tell you about the skirt.

 

About this maxi

Length is always an issue for me. This maxi skirt has a ruched fold-over waist, so tall girls like me can just unfold it and get 6″ more length. Average height or petite gals can fold over the waist as much as needed. It has a pull-on style with a little bit of stretch, so it’s very comfortable. This one is sold out, but I found similar skirts here and here.

I own other pieces from this brand, Bobeau. I find their styles to be fashionable, comfortable, flattering, and versatile. Their prices are equivalent to what you’d find at Loft or Ann Taylor, and they have regular and plus sizes.

 

Outfit #1: Black Maxi Vacation Style

This black maxi skirt is ideal for travel because it’s very comfortable, and its versatility allows for dressing up or down. My split-back faded leopard tank, coral belt, woven purse, and lightweight hoop earrings are all from Anthropologie.

Outfit #2: Maxi with Graphic Tee and Sneakers

I traded in the jeans for my comfortable black maxi skirt and added a few shiny accessories to create this casual and fun daytime look. I’ll be wearing this one for shopping, breakfast or lunch out, a summer concert, or most of all for playing with my little grand buddy.

Outfit #3: Dressed up Maxi with Polka Dots

I love a classic polka dot top, and the ruffle shoulder detail on this one sold me. I added platform sandals (similar) and used the same coral belt to finish this outfit for a chic summer evening look.

I’ve linked a few other shirts I love that would look great with this maxi. The one-shoulder tops are especially cute, but I know not everyone feels comfortable with their upper arms. The off-the-shoulder one and large-polka dot linen top are beautiful options if you like more upper arm coverage.

If you’re building (or adding to) a capsule wardrobe, a black maxi is worth considering if you don’t own one yet. You can wear it year round, including summer, it will never be out of fashion, and you can style it multiple ways!
