Just as we had begun to embrace short skirts in all their cropped micro-glory, colder temperatures began to take over and (as expected) have severely limited our ability to continue wearing the leg-baring styles. Fortunately, for those of us tired of constant jean wearing (hello!), there is another style that has already proven to be winter’s answer to one of the year’s most coveted staples: the maxi skirt.
If you think about it, maxi skirts really are Perfect cold weather alternative. They give everything the same 90s charm like their cropped counterparts, just in a thicker (and frankly, much warmer!) design. Long maxi skirts also offer so much styling versatility – giving you the freedom to pair them with anything from sneakers and loafers to knee high boots and more.
After months of stocking miniskirts in pretty much every variation you could imagine – from country-chic denim minis (inspired by Kendall Jennerof course) to teeny-bitty patent styles that just oozed Barbiecore vibes — we’re more than ready to embrace some cozier and more conservative ensembles through the maxi skirt trend. If you’re also hoping to ditch your pants entirely this winter, we’ve rounded up the best maxi skirts for women to shop this season—with styles ranging from boho maxi skirts (a year-round favorite!) and high . -waisted maxi skirts for faux leather styles, skirts with pockets and even denim maxi skirts.
