Wearing a skirt as a top takes a little tweaking to wear the right way.

You’ve got to pick the right style to start with; I chose a wrap style so I could play with the layers and create texture in my outfit. I always looking for a skirt with a stretchy waist band, not for any special reason, just because they’re the most comfortable ( okay that’s a pretty special reason )

From there, it’s up to you! Mix and match your favorite pieces to get the style you want, you’ll never look at skirts the same again!

  • This is such a great idea!! I have done the maxi-skirt-worn-as-a-dress thing before, but my maxi skirt didn’t have a slit in it, so it looked exactly like a dress. I LOVE how yours has a slit in it, so you can see the shorts underneath! Great idea to maximize the pieces in your closet! Also your clutch is perfect for like every single summer event ever. Memorial, 4th of July, Labor Day, etc!
