Plus Size Maxi Skirt Worn as a Shirt #OOTD

Yesterday I shared how I wear a LuLaRoe Maxi Skirt as a dress.  Today I want to share how I wear that same plus size maxi skirt as a shirt.  This is definitely a non-traditional way to wear a maxi skirt, but I love the way it looks!

Do you wish your wardrobe was more versatile? Today I'm showing you how to wear a plus size maxi skirt as a top! No one the fabulous top you're wearing is actually a skirt!

How to Wear a Plus Size Maxi Skirt As a Top

It’s super easy to wear as a shirt.  Simply pull the skirt all the way up your body and slip one arm under the waistband.  The waist of the skirt should be on your neck and under your arm.  Once it’s laying across your body, you’ll need a belt it to keep it in place.  If you’re worried about showing more skin than you want, you can wear a strapless cami under it or just wear a regular cami under it and tuck the strap in. Voila! You have an awesome top!  Also, this is the perfect outfit for showing off a pair of statement earrings!  I love the way these Nebula earrings look!

I LOVE Plus Size Fashion and helping real women put together outfits that make them look like a million bucks without spending a million bucks! Since I regularly hear from women who tell me how challenging it can be to find Plus Size Outfits, I decided to put together a variety of outfits!

Why LuLaRoe?

The first time I tried on LuLaRoe, I fell in love!  Seriously!  The leggings were buttery soft and the clothing fit sooo well. I was also amazed at how affordable it was!  And I love that the clothes are designed for women of all shapes and sizes! They make clothing from XXS to 3XL!  Want to learn more about LuLaRoe?

Why Noonday?

Wonder why I recommend Noonday Collection all the time?  Noonday Collection is a business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities around the world!

As a Noonday Ambassador, I get to combine 4 of my passions: empowering women to become the best version of themselves, making an impact in communities without the economic advantages we have in the US, orphan care and of course, fashion!  If you’re interested in learning more about Noonday Collection, send me an email!

    I love how you paired that with jeans. It looks absolutely fabulous. I would immediately only think of pairing it with leggings, lol… hence the reason I have no fashion sense! HA! Thanks for sharing, you look great!

    I love it! How neat that you can make it a shirt too. I love when you can make different outfits out of one piece of clothing.

  3. Rachael Yerkes says

    Way to think outside the box. I am not anywhere close to this creative, especially with clothes! Way to rock that maxi!

    That’s so creative! I actually thought about doing this with a skirt I have. It’s not plus-sized, but it would still work. I love the over the one shoulder idea.
