Two Ways to Wear Denim Maxi Skirt in Summer: Printed and Plain Tanks

Last time I did a ways to wear post on this skirt it was winter. I've been wearing it a lot lately so thought it was time to do a 2 ways to wear post for summer, with some basic tanks.

Despite the chambray being a bit of a pain to iron I'm really glad I got this skirt. I'd been thinking about a denim maxi for a while before I got this one. I still have a lot of outfit ideas for it. It's so simple to wear.

What I wore:

Necklace: Ruby Olive Softies Charlotte teething necklace
TankAtmos & Here Oregon stripe tank
SkirtNoisy May long denim maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagBalenciaga giant hardware Day bag in 2009 tempete

Why I wore it:

It had been a while since I last wore this striped tank and it met a few of the days style challenges on Instagram. I wasn't sure how the trapeze style tank would work with the voluminous maxi skirt but half-tucked in it works.

I tend to do a half-tuck with most of my tops, it's a style trick I use when looking for different ways to wear things as well as when I need to stop things overwhelming my petite frame. I really liked this outfit, ideal for running a few errands. I liked it last time I wore this chambray skirt with stripes too.

Why I wore it:

Although it's the 11th time I've worn this chambray maxi skirt, it's the first time I've tucked a top in to show off the elastic waistband. Maxi skirts with elastic waists are the most comfortable item of clothing I own, even though they look like you put more effort when compared to jeans. I wore them a lot in the post-partum days, after enjoying their stretchiness across pregnancy.

Hit just two style challenges on Instagram as I wore this to the annual Chinese New Year banquet with the in-laws and wanted to wear something red - this tank being the only red thing I can breastfeed in (and even then it's not ideal for feeding). I did briefly consider wearing shorts and my red kimono, but wanted to look a little more dressed up for dinner so a maxi skirt was perfect. The yellow bag and teething necklace aren't quite gold, but it was as close as I could get to a red and gold outfit while staying baby-friendly!

Last worn: red tank, chambray maxi skirt (above), gold Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mustard yellow Regan bag.

  1. I am a big fan of maxi skirts, but I never thought about wearing them in denim. Isn't that quite hot in the summer?

  2. Mica, I love that skirt. You will be able to pair it with so many different tops. I love the two tanks you styled it with. Both look great with the skirt. Very nice selection.

  3. Ahh I can't believe that skirt is denim! I LOVE Chambray everything so that skirt is right up my alley! Both looks are so cute (as usual)!

  4. I like this chambray skirt! I am a fan of the half-tuck myself. I use it a lot. I also like the skirt with the full tuck though too. I just wanted to say thank you for your thoughtful comments especially related to motherhood. You are always so encouraging and it really means a lot to me!

  5. SO CUTE! I love doing the half tuck too! It'll be our little petite style secret :)

  6. Oh, wow, I've not seen a chambray maxi in a long while and nothing like this. This looks so comfortable and great for your occasion and style challenges, given the current climate. <3 Wish you a lovely week, Mica.

  7. That's such a great skirt--it's SO versatile, which I love. Both outfits are fun, I love the stripes in the first one. You have such a great collection of teething necklaces too. I just got a couple and I'm really excited to use them--I didn't have any when Jona was a baby.

  8. You do a great job with the half tuck! I love the way you've worn this maxi. I wouldn't have thought of getting a denim maxi, but it looks so cute on you!

  9. I love stripes and bright colours so definitely like both these looks. I'd like to add some chambray to my wardrobe, I've wanted to for ages but need to find the right piece. Thanks so much for your comment on my last post. Really, really appreciate your help and also to know you understand!

  10. I love that you've styled the denim maxi with a fitted top tucked in and a looser one tucked out. It's pretty amazing that one small detail can really change the overall appearance of the ensemble! I can't wait until it is warm enough to start wearing outfits like these again =)

  11. I am loving denim maxi skirts at the moment! I bought an a-line one from the thrift store and I wear almost every weekend (only on weekends because I need more office-appropriate clothes for weekdays). :)

  13. I've never owned a chambray maxi before, but I love the look of yours and now, I think I may want to get one for the spring. Especially since they're what I'm looking forward to most come spring and early summer, when my bump will be the largest. Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!



  14. Love this chambray skirt! It looks so versatile and would be great for Spring and Summer! You always accessorize with the cutest bags!

  15. A denim maxi would be so versatile!

    Although I always love my stripes I love your second styling of this skirt best with the pop of red in the top!


  16. It looks nicely thin and breathable. I'll wear denim whenever I can. Love the stuff

  17. Very lovely! I love this color on you in the skirt and the maxi skirt elevates it the look as well. Lov ethe colors as well as the tank on you , you make me wish for summer! Love seeing the puppy too!

  18. I have always been a fan of half tucking tops! I am chesty, so tucking something all the way in gives me an odd shape. When I have tuck it gives the illusion that I am proportionate, which couldn't be farther from reality. (; I call it "smizing." Another blogger friend on here taught me the word and it's basically dressing yourself to give the illusion of a smaller frame. I do it all the time now! However Joshua doesn't really "get" it. lol
