How to Style a Black Skirt: 1 Simple Midi Skirt, 10 Stylish Outfits

I’m going to be showing you how to style a black skirt in 10 different ways. 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 to have in your closet, styling black skirts is easy and you can style them for so many different occasions. Let’s jump on in:

Cute skirt outfits

1. Formal

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.
