While unpacking my warm weather clothes I came across one of my favorite pandemic purchases: a gingham maxi skirt. A long flowy skirt is trending for spring – and there are a few varieties of tiered maxi skirts in stores right now. Here are three ways to style a gingham maxi skirt.
Did you know gingham was most popular in U.S. during the 1940s? The pattern entered the fashion scene during World War II, and still remains a go-to summer style. The preppy summertime fabric can be worn so many different ways – especially when it’s in a maxi skirt form. I’m alternating between three different top options for my gingham maxi skirt. Enjoy these looks – a silk tank with sweater over the shoulders, a crisp white button-up knotted at the naval, and a t-shirt and denim jacket
Three Ways to Style a Gingham Skirt
Silk Tank + Summer Sweater
T-shirt and Denim Jacket
There are countless different tank tops you could pair with a maxi skirt for the summer. I opted for an old navy button up silk cami, but here are some similar styles: scalloped cami top, silk navy camisole (less expensive silk tank top), navy scalloped tank top.
In the summer time I usually keep a lightweight sweater close by since New England nights can be chilly. I have a few summer sweaters from years passed, but here is one similar beach sweater and another beach sweater in tan.
This solid maxi skirt would look cute with a navy tank top too!
Layering a t-shirt and jean jacket is a great way to wear a maxi skirt in the summer time. I just bought my first jean jacket (yes I know I’m late to the party) and it’s lightweight and comfortable.
Where to Buy a Summer Maxi Skirt
Since J.Crew Factory no longer carries my gingham skirt, I found quite a few similar styles online (see below). Whether the skirt is midi or maxi, navy or colorful, you can pair it with any of the suggested tops above!
