White is the best color blouse which will match with almost any color of the maxi skirt paired with it. Choose a nice fitted long sleeved or short sleeved blouse and pair it with a floral pencil skirt. Throw on a pearl cluster coat in black which will keep you warm when it gets cold in the evening at the same time to add more style to the outfit. Complement the attire with a nice medium leather shoulder bag which matches with the trend.

You can tie a green thin leather belt around your waist to show off your waistline. This will add style to the attire making it look more appearing than any other outfit with long skirts.
Try to maintain or keep the color for the outfit the same. In this I mean keep your accessories such as handbag or tote, bracelets and earrings green or teal. Finish with High heel teal or green peep-toes shoes to flatter and complement the whole attire.
You can dress like this in the evening when vising your friends or when going out for a coffee or a drink along the cafe at the riverbanks.
Wear Long or Maxi Skirts With T-Shirts
If you are looking for a top which is easy to style for a perfect casual outfit in maxi or long skirts, tees (t-shirts) will be the best option for you. Even if you don’t know much about color mixing, you can wear your t-shirt with a long skirt and look fashionable. All you need to do is to opt for neutral color t-shirts and dull color long skirts.
For instance, choose a nice fitted t-shirt in white or grey. The t-shirt can be short sleeved or long sleeved depending on your preference.

Wear leopard printed pumps to match with and complement the thin leather belt around your waistline. Accessorize with dark sunnies, cute short necklace and earrings which will add style to the getup. A grey or cream tote will finish off the trend and get you ready to go and rock fancy and romantic attire in your long skirt with a tee.
Wear Long or Maxi Skirts With Shirts
Well I would recommend shirts for women of high class. Shirts paired with maxi or long skirts look trendy on sophisticated ladies. When you opt to wear shirts with long skirts, opt for black, maroon, purple, brown or any other shouting colors. Remember, it’s very easy to clash the trend with shouting colors so if you aren’t good at color mixing and matching, don’t opt for this outfit.
For instance, choose a nice brown or maroon long skirt and pair it with a flower printed chiffon shirt. You must tuck-in the shirt and belt the skirt with a thin leather belt to look more fashionable and neat. A brown medium fabric bag will be a good complement to the skirt.
Accessorize with nice earrings and armlets to make the attire look more feminine. Finish off the trend with Brownish or pinkish platform sandals and you will be good to go. You can dress like this when going to work on Thursday or any other day of the week other than Monday.

Wear Long or Maxi Skirts With Peplum Tops
Peplum tops are one of my favorite tops which I wear occasional with skirts. Quite frankly, I rarely wear them with a maxi or long skirt instead I wear the most with short or knee length skirts. Irrespective of the length of the skirt you wear with peplum tops, be rest assured of a head turning outfit when you step out of your house.
Peplum tops in black, white or floral prints will be the best choice to pair with this kind of outfit. Let’s say you have a green or teal long skirt, which color of peplum top looks great when paired with it? Sophisticated and classy ladies will go for black or white peplum tops coz these two colors are neutral colors which will match with almost anything paired with it.

Depending on the style you want to create, you can tuck-in the top and belt the skirt with a black thin leather belt around waist to show off your waistline.
