While we’re not getting rid of our mini or midi skirts anytime soon, we are welcoming a refreshing, new skirt length into our wardrobes this fall. Maxi skirts are back for fall, but we’re not talking about the stretchy jersey skirts or boho skirts we often associate with summer beach vacations. No, the modern maxi skirt is sophisticated, grown-up, and altogether polished. These maxi skirts are desk-to-dinner approved and add a romantic touch to your professional attire.
The trend was seen all over the fall runways—from sumptuous pleated iterations seen at Chloé and Chanel to knitted skirts at Nanushka and gorgeous satin-silk high-slit maxis at Brandon Maxwell. The chicest and easiest way to style yours this fall is with an oversize sweater or turtleneck and your pick of shoes—from brogues to stomping boots to shearling boots to pumps, practically everything looks so good peeping through the bottom of your hem. Scroll below to see the best on the runways, on Instagram, and on the market right now.
