When it comes to winter dressing, a skirt probably isn't the first item that comes to mind when you're planning out your outfits (unless you're pairing it with a particularly cozy pair of tights). However, there is one style you probably haven't considered, but it's one of the only ones that's going to keep you from freezing. The style in question here is the maxi skirt, which normally is a trend that can be very hit or miss. Lately, though, the way celebs are styling the full-length piece is totally on point.
We figured out from them that the key to wearing this tricky silhouette is being sure to elevate the aesthetic of the rest of the outfit with some more sophisticated elements. Take a cue from actress Ruth Negga, who styled her textured skirt with a ruffled sleeve top, a pastel pink belt, and metallic pumps. Nicole Kidman, too, recently styled a maxi skirt for a red carpet event, hers was an elegant fluted hem iteration paired with a collared, glittery sweater and ankle-strap heels. After seeing outfits like these, we're pretty convinced we want to try this outfit formula ASAP.
