Whether you're aiming for a casual daytime look or a comfy travel ensemble, mastering the art of styling a denim maxi skirt can elevate your fashion game. Keep reading as we explore some savvy maxi denim skirt thoughts and styling tips from the perspective of our very own denim skirt lover and model, Abbie!

  1. Maximizing Versatility:

 To stay on-trend yet maximize your wardrobe, consider experimenting with a classic light or dark denim with minimal distressing so you can maximize its wear.  You can do that with dressing it up with a blouse and boots OR keep it casual with a tee and sneakers. One of Abbie’s favorite washes is the Piper A-Line Long Denim Skirts  for spring with its incredible comfort that is perfect for anyone wanting that timeless look! You will especially love the light fringe on the hem and leather patch detail, with no slit in the back!


  1. Day-to-Day ways to wear Maxi Denim

For day-to-day wear, nothing beats the comfort and durability of cotton denim. Its natural breathability and timeless appeal make it a reliable choice for everyday outfits. Whether it's a casual stroll to the library or a quick errand run, cotton denim provides the perfect balance of style and comfort. Abbie did note that when she knows she will be moving more and needing maximum flexibility, she opts for a blended stretch denim like the Dakota Maxi Skirt! This innovative fabric combines the classic look of denim with added stretch for ease of movement, making it ideal for busy days spent running around town, traveling, or tackling daily tasks. With blended stretch denim, Abbie says she can confidently embrace the hustle and bustle of daily life without sacrificing comfort or style, because the quality skirts she gets at Inherit don’t lose their shape while wearing them!


  1. Styling Hacks for Seasonal Transitions:

When it comes to maximizing the versatility of denim skirts, the key lies in embracing creativity while staying true to your personal style and of course the season, says Abbie. One of her favorite styling tricks when there is a chill in the air is to pair a denim maxi skirt with no-cling leggings for a warmer and cozy look, and busting the myth that skirts are too cold in the winter months!  Transitioning your denim skirt from winter to spring can be a breeze with a few simple styling hacks. During colder months, layer your denim maxi skirt with cozy knit sweaters and knee-high boots for a stylish and warm fit. As temperatures start to rise, swap out heavy layers for lightweight blouses or our essential tees  paired with sandals or sneakers for a fresh and effortless spring look.

  1. Preferred Silhouettes and Lengths:

When it comes to denim skirt silhouettes and lengths, personal preference plays a huge role. Personally, when Abbie wears long denim skirts, she gravitates towards straighter, 40”-41” skirts  for their easy length and timeless appeal.  Now 40”-41” skirts are tough to find when you are 5’10”’, however most maxi lengths offer versatility when you find the right one. The Holly for instance happens to be a 40” cotton, a-line maxi skirt - so even though it’s not a straight fit that she prefers, it works well for Abbie as it is a timeless cotton style! 


  1. Easy-to pair Colored Denim Skirts:

Colored denim skirts offer a delightful twist to your everyday wardrobe, injecting a pop of personality and fun into your outfits. When it comes to styling these versatile pieces, Abbie shares that simplicity is key. Pairing colored denim skirts with simple tops, tees, and layers allows the hue of the skirt to take center stage while creating effortlessly chic looks. For a casual daytime ensemble, opt for a crisp white tee or a striped top paired with your favorite navy denim skirt. Layering with a denim jacket or a lightweight cardigan adds dimension to the outfit while keeping it cozy on cooler days. Alternatively, embrace the laid-back feel of a graphic tee paired with your comfy black denim maxi skirt for a playful yet stylish look. By keeping the top half of your outfit understated, you can let the bolder color of your denim skirt shine through, creating effortlessly chic and versatile outfits for any occasion.


Styling a denim maxi skirt opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you to express your unique sense of style while staying effortlessly modest. Abbie thinks by incorporating these styling tips and tricks into your wardrobe, you can unleash the full potential of your denim skirt game and create captivating looks for any occasion or season. So, embrace the JOY of the modest denim maxi skirt and let your outfits shine!
