How to Style a Black Skirt

I’m going to be showing you ten different ways that you can style a black midi-skirt. Midi skirts are flattering and great for everyday wear. The one I’ve gone for is more of a straight pencil cut, but you could also go for an A-line skirt if you’d prefer. A versatile piece, you can style them for so many different occasions. Let’s jump on in:

Cute skirt outfits


For a formal look, pair your black skirt with a white blouse, finished off with a blazer and a belt around the waist. Add some style by having your cuffs poking out of the blazer. Finish it off with some minimalist earrings and mules.

Easy skirt outfits

Loose and laid back

For something laid back and relaxed, go for a baggy draped sleeve top with a loose jacket over the top. Slip on a pair of mules for a comfortable and easy outfit.

Basic skirt outfits

Statement belt

A statement belt is a game-changing piece. Draw eyes to your waistline with a chained gold belt. Keep the rest of the outfit simple with a color tee and a pair of DMs.

Midi skirt outfits

All black

Go for something easy with a black lightweight sweater. If you want to make it a little more interesting, go for a different shade or contrasting texture to the skirt. A belt around your waist will break up the monochrome look and add some structure.

Versatile skirt outfits

Ruffle blouse

Dress a black skirt up with a cream ruffle front blouse. Add a pair of Doc Martens to create a smart-casual look.

Skirt outfit ideas


A white blouse with statement sleeves is guaranteed to make an impact. Add some asymmetrical interest with a shoulder strap on one side.

Easy chic

Create an effortlessly chic outfit by pairing your black skirt with a silk blouse - a material that elevates whatever you wear it with. Throw a blazer over the top together with a skinny belt for some waist definition.

Casual workwear

Office meets casual in this outfit. Blur the boundaries by pairing a shirt and a blazer with a pair of sandals.


Add a touch of elegance with a lace top. Play with transparency by going for one that is opaque on the body and sheer on the arms. The addition of a favorite broach is a great way to add your unique signature to your look.

Secret dress

Got a mini dress that you absolutely love? Slip it on under a midi skirt, and you can enjoy it as a top as well. A great way to get maximum mileage out of your clothes, and no one will be able to tell that it’s really a dress.

As you can see, whether you want to go for something more formal or more casual, there is an outfit for you. Black midi skirts are very easy to dress up or dress down. So, if you haven’t tried wearing a black midi skirt before, now is the time!
