Looking to take your maxi skirt out on the town? Take the Cora Long Skirt in another style direction by dressing it down for everyday wear.

Bia Long Skirt

When learning how to style long skirts to suit your preference, go for multiple colors of the same style. The Bia Long Skirt offers plenty of outfit variety with its Verena and Periwinkle hues. Each offers a different aesthetic and can be used to create multiple outfits with this one timeless piece. 

Dress It Up for a Day in the Office

Even casual office dress codes require work attire that covers the shoulders and is suitable to wear for meetings with clients and colleagues. However, being “dressed up” to go to work doesn’t have to feel fussy or frumpy when you’re wearing a long skirt. 

The Verena Bia Long Skirt’s micro floral pattern has a fall feel that looks great when worn with the Lana Pullover cropped sweater, a neutral-colored belt, and matching boots or block heels. It delivers a professional and sophisticated look without feeling too buttoned-up, good for a day in the office. Have fun with fashion no matter what the day brings.

Dress It Down for an Outdoor Celebration

Don’t know which tops to wear with long skirts? Our collection has something for every kind of outfit. The Periwinkle version of the Bia Long Skirt is classically cool with its sky blue hue and a breezy feel to the wrap-style of the skirt. A smart choice is to pair it with the matching Periwinkle Elis Nara Top to make a look that’s ideal for a garden wedding, birthday party, or any other type of celebration. It’s laid-back enough for an outdoor environment but put together in a way that still feels like you’re dressed properly for the occasion.

Rose Skirt

As with the Bia Long Skirt, the Rose Skirt offers two different color options that completely changes the look. Each presents vivid, jewel-toned hues with asymmetrical pleating to the skirt, which adds dimension and an ethereal flow. Plus, the rayon-silk material blend feels good against the skin and adds a bit of sheen to the outfit.

Dress It Up for Date Night

A little black dress takes you far when it comes to planning for date night, but there’s something eye-catching about the vibrant pops of color the Mabel Rose Skirt offers. With vibrant shades of red and purple set atop a cobalt background, it’s like a painting in fashion form. Keep with the eye-catching color by wearing it with the Tulip Eris Nara Top. Then, wear gold sandals and jewelry to complete a look that’s ready to go for date night. 

Dress It Down for Relaxing at a Resort

If you like the swing of this long skirt style, but want a completely different vibe, the Azure Rose Skirt has resort wear written all over it. The gorgeous sea green color fits in with a tropical setting and looks effortlessly elegant to wear around the resort. 

The gorgeous flow is comfortable to wear in warmer climates and looks great when worn over a one-piece swimsuit and paired with flip flops. The Firenze Fringe Luana One Piece is an optimal option to pair with the skirt. It doubles as a bodysuit to wear to the pool, beach, or anywhere your next vacation takes you.

Tips for How to Wear Long Skirts

There are multiple ways to style a long skirt, but there are a few tips to keep in mind to make sure the wardrobe piece works for you. 

Create Balance

Feeling comfortable is a cinch when it comes to wearing a long skirt, but it’s easy to keep the outfit in balance, too. If you choose a long skirt that’s loose and flowy, then balance it with a fitted top so it doesn’t appear sloppy or oversized. It’ll help maintain a streamlined and flattering silhouette. 

Swap Out Shoes 

One of the easiest ways to transition from day to night or summer to fall is to swap out shoes. The same long skirt can still work if you wear pieces that speak to the season you’re in or the occasion you’re attending. Flip flops and sandals are quintessential spring and summer footwear, but once temperatures start cooling down, replace those options with closed-toe flats and pumps.

Find the Ideal Fit

Though long skirts typically have a flowy hemline, make sure not to get overwhelmed by the fabric. Ensure the skirt feels tailored to you. Even if the skirt is not necessarily form-fitting, the right fit keeps the look polished and pretty. It should feel comfortable enough to move around freely but with a personalized fit to create a flattering silhouette. When it comes to fashion, make the style work for you, not the other way around. 

Embrace Your Personal Style

As with anything in fashion, you have to find what feels right for your personal style. Though you may love how a certain skirt looks on someone else, you may not find it’s the right fit for you. Once you hone in on your go-to fit, experiment with different colors and patterns. With so much variety in a long skirt available, you can find what’s most flattering for you.

The beauty of a long skirt is there is a style fit for everyone. It can be dressed up or down by simply swapping out shoes, accessories, and other layering pieces. Look for colors, patterns, and designs that catch your eye and consider creative ways to create multiple outfits. A long skirt is a must-have piece for any wardrobe because of its versatility and lasting appeal.
