Then, combine the maxi skirt with a classic white button-up shirt for a stylish and comfortable look that can be worn anywhere, from exploring the city to enjoying a fun lunch with friends. The denim maxi skirt adds a touch of casual chic vibes to the classic button-up, making it a great choice for a variety of casual outings.
