How to wear a casual maxi skirt

Q. I just bought a cute sheer-ish maxi skirt for summer but just can’t seem to figure out how to wear it. Can you give me some ideas?

A. Breezy maxi skirts have a sort of beachy, boho vibe and look best when worn with slouchy tees and tanks and sandals. You can try tucking your top in fully, wearing it long and loose, or tucking it in partially for a laid-back look. You can also try wearing a crop top or knotted shirt, but this looks best for younger women (read: under 25). Here are a few looks for inspiration:
