How to cut trim to meet skirt boards

How should I cut the trim where it buts up to the skirt boards of the stairs. Do I cut a small cope in the back of the trim so that it overlaps the skirt board trim? I have included a pic.

If it were me, I'd cope it into the skirt board head on.

The 45 return looks good.... Just to "busy" for that application.

I cut it 3 times..... and it's still too short.

Dont go ninja'ing anybody that dont need no ninja'ing...

You could just cut a 45 bevel on the edge, and place it to the trim.

personnally, i don't like when colors overlap. it draws attention to it, as coping the trim into the skirt would result in. i would attempt to place a (stained/varnished) block at the skirt edge and butt the trim to it.
