What Do You Think of Maxiskirts?

Sifting For Sartorial Gold wants to know: What do you think of maxiskirts?

Very long skirts, or maxi skirts, are a trend I can see both sides of. They can totally be seen as frumpy. They could also be one of those things that look so cool and effortless. I guess this goes back to the huge maxi dress trend a couple years ago. Honestly, I think I had one then. Now, I definitely don't. I don't know how wearable or flattering these skirts are. I would expect pretty unflattering since some styles cling to the hips and they definitely don't add curves to boyish frames. However, many people used the maxi dress for an alternative t-shirt and jeans — they are very comfortable and easy. Read the rest here.

Love it! I wear long skirts all time. I am 5' 2" and I make it work by only wearing shirts that reach my hips. I have a long torso so the skirt actually helps my legs look longer in a way. I remember this was in style in the mid-90s! So glad it's coming back!

The solid slimmer styles look alright.

I think they're fun. And with heels I think anyone can look tall and lean in a maxi skirt.

I've never seen this look good. Not feeling it.

Fun to wear, but difficult to pull off.

I like them on me... of course I am 5'9" with long legs. I agree that they would swallow a smaller person.

I would drown in them, so that makes them frumpy in my opinion. But then again I'm only 5'4, but if your tall enough work it! =)
