Wait—don't pack away your favorite summertime maxi skirt just yet, because as it turns out, it's the perfect base of your new favorite fall outfit. Sure, a mini or midi skirt works just as well in the cooler months (it's all about layering with these warm-weather staples), but a maxi skirt offers just a bit more leg coverage for when the temperatures drop. Best of all, the full-length garment can be worn with every type of shoe (think white booties, sneakers, mules, or platforms), top, and jacket imaginable. It's the versatile staple your autumn wardrobe has been missing. Don't believe us? The proof is in the cool maxi skirt outfits we've rounded up below.
Have a lightweight silk maxi you've worn nonstop this summer and are just not ready to part ways with for the next six months? Pair it with an oversize wool knit and ankle boots to make it work throughout the cold-weather months. Of course, you can always slip into tights, as well, for additional coverage and warmth (and the good thing about the long garment is that hosiery stays fairly hidden underneath).
