Indiesew Skirt Week | How to Style a Maxi Skirt for Fall

Truth be told, Fall Skirt Week was 100% Aimee’s idea. Aimee is one of those people who can come up with an idea and knows exactly how to execute it. She can style a garment more ways than I thought imaginable. For that, and a million other reasons, I’m so grateful she’s on our team.

But despite my lack of style creativity, I still wanted to participate in our Fall Skirt Week with a style post. I mean, I need styling help when it comes to skirts. In my head, skirts seem super versatile. They’re a separate that can be paired with a multitude of tops, jackets, and accessories. In theory, one skirt can be worn a million different ways. But, for some reason, I just don't wear them.

I wanted to challenge myself to style a maxi skirt, the Syrah Skirt to be exact, for cooler temps. I spent some time on Pinterest looking for inspiration and then got to work pulling items in my closet. It took me just ten minutes of trying on different tops to realize that, holy moly; I love a knit maxi skirt. So thank you Aimee, and Skirt Week. I’m on my way to being a skirt convert.

If you’re still on the fence about maxi skirts, or have trouble styling them outside of summer months, this post is for you. I’m offering up two easy ways to wear your knit maxi skirt so that you still look put-together, but secretly feel like you’re wearing pajamas.

In fall, I’m all about layering. Here I’m wearing the Ella Top with a jean jacket over the top. Throw on a scarf and this outfit is ideal for a chilly fall day. I would wear this to meetings or out to a movie night with my guy.

I’ve also found that maxi skirts also look great with simple knit tees, half tucked into the waistband. Here I’m wearing the new-and-improved Lane Raglan with my Syrah Skirt. This outfit is perfect for working around the house and lunch out with friends.

The Syrah Skirt features a wide waistband and is luxuriously lined. This makes for a hefty skirt that covers lumps and bumps, while also tucks things in around the belly. This skirt would look fantastic sewn in one of our rayon spandex jersey fabrics.

Don't forget that the Syrah (and all skirt patterns) are 15% off until this Friday! Use coupon code FALL4SKIRTS at checkout to receive the discount. 

Stay tuned, folks, as we have lots more skirt inspiration coming your way this week! Aimee will be showing off a brand new sewing pattern. Plus, we’ve got a great blog tour to bring you even more inspiration!

Happy sewing!
