Over the Miniskirt? Say Hello to These Chic Denim Maxis
There's no denying that miniskirts and even micro miniskirts have been everywhere this season. But for those of you who prefer a longer hemline, we have some good news: the denim maxi skirt is in. With cuts below the knee and even sometimes grazing the floor, it's a flattering, elongating option for just about everyone.
Not sure where to start? Ahead, you'll find the maxi skirts we've been coveting. Made from structured denim, they offer an elevated, perhaps even more sophisticated take on the trend and give a nice nod to '90s fashion icons. Whether you want to go for a Western spin with cowboy boots or tuck in a chunky sweater with booties, these skirts will serve you well this season and the next. (And probably keep your legs a bit warmer, too.)
ASOS Design Denim Cargo Midi Skirt
Cargo fashion of the '90s meets the midi skirt in this black denim number ($49). We love the knee-high slit for comfort and style and the flattering high-rise waist. Wear it as shown with a cute crop top and chunky heels, or bring it into your winter wardrobe with a cozy cardigan and boots.
Loewe Asymmetric Ruffled Denim Skirt
For a twist on the classic maxi skirt, we have this cool-girl asymmetric skirt ($594, originally $990) that features a high ruffled hem. Thanks to that ruffle, it's got a little extra attitude and movement. Tuck in a tee for off-duty-model vibes, and pop on a denim jacket to go full Canadian tuxedo.
ASOS Design Curve Denim '90s Maxi Skirt
Whether you live in a warmer climate or love a winter white, pick up this versatile white maxi ($46) for days at the office, weekends of running errands, and everything in between. Of course, take it on vacation with you, too. The lengthy front slit ensures the pencil-shaped skirt isn't too form fitting, and the high-rise waist creates a nice long line from hem to hem.
Altuzarra Robinson Denim Midi-Skirt
This isn't your classic denim maxi. No, with a string belt, below-the-waist belt loops, and a back slit, it's a grownup, fashion-forward take ($795) on skirts you'll see elsewhere. It's an eye-catching piece that would look best unadorned: try a tucked-in white tee or a simple blouse. Add a pair of mules or boots to complete the look.
Mara Hoffman Nakita Skirt
While most maxis we see have a straight, pencil fit, this one from Mara Hoffman ($395) features a flattering A-line silhouette with a front slit. Made from organic cotton, it's soft but structured. It would look just as chic with a black bodysuit as it would a thick turtleneck sweater. With so much versatility, it'll see you through winter — and then some.
Khaite Levine Denim Midi-Skirt
We love the feminine touches of this unique denim maxi ($480), from the mermaid silhouette that starts fitted then juts out into an A-line to the pleats. It's an eye-catching shape but still just as versatile as our other picks. Give it some attitude with a pair of combat boots and a graphic tee, or keep things simple with a cashmere crewneck half tucked.
Rosetta Getty Heavy Denim Button-Front Midi-Skirt
Bold features like heavy brass buttons and front patch pockets give this denim maxi ($850) extra style and substance. We love the soft but structured denim and the elongating silhouette. Got a pair of loafers, some tights if it's chilly, and a cardigan? Then you're ready for a stylish day ahead.
Magda Butrym Long Denim Skirt in Indigo
If you want to start with something classic — a gateway maxi, if you will — look no further than this simple but beautiful indigo maxi skirt ($545). Made from stiff denim with a straight silhouette, it's the skirt you wish you had in the 2000s. So make up for lost time, pop on a blouse and a leather jacket, and take on the season in style.
