This One Skirt Trend Will Still Have a Moment in 2023, and I'm Here for It

In the past year, miniskirts have been steadily increasing in popularity. While there's much to love about the short-skirt trend, many fashion folks have been opting for maxi skirts recently. Due to the length, maxi skirt outfits are incredibly versatile and can be styled for everything from casual everyday wear to work-appropriate looks. For those looking to add full-length maxi skirts to their clothing roster, I've taken the liberty of browsing through the robust websites of top online retailers to hunt down the best maxi skirts available to purchase now.

After sifting through endless online offerings, I've uncovered a number of maxi skirts that'd cater to just about any sartorial aesthetic out there. From cargo maxi skirts with functional pockets to beautiful, tiered cottagecore options, shop a variety of stylish maxis today.



This faux-leather skirt oozes cool. 

A green dress for those days when you're feeling lucky. 

The cotton gauze material is super breathable and perfect for the summer. 

"Just got this, tried it on, and [I] can't wait to wear it. It's so, so soft and summery. The slit is not too high, and it's not see-through. It's loose enough to be comfortable, but it's not voluminous. I wear a 10 in J. Crew trousers, and the medium is perfect." — J.Crew Reviewer

An ethereal look.

"I've been eyeing this slip for the longest! I decided to treat myself and buy it, [and] I was not disappointed. I've worn this in multiple ways. If you're a layering fairy like me, you'll love this skirt. As always with FP, I want one in every color." — FP Reviewer


A tiered denim beauty.

"Beautiful design and fits very well. I love how it flows" — FP Reviewer

This gingham number is ideal for warmer days.

"Very cute and comfy skirt [that] fits true to size. Appears yellow in the picture, but is more of a beige gingham." — Old Navy Reviewer

This gingham print is perfect for spring.

"Lightweight, easy to wear. Timeless design and is fun to mix up with any season. Layer underneath for fall or with a T-shirt." — FP Reviewer


Fair warning: You may love how this feels. 

"I found this in the Free People store and decided to give it a try. I'm a true size 8 (5'8, 155 lbs), but they were out. I tried a 10, and it fit slouchy and lower on the hips like the model. The slit is high, but you can't see it unless you sit (definitely cross your legs in this one)." — FP Reviewer 

Such a vibrant pop of color.

"I've been looking for a basic maxi skirt, and for some reason, they're so hard to find! I wasn't looking for a silk material as I have several, so this was exactly what I'd been looking for! The fabric feels nice and cool and is so flattering! [The] waistband stretches nicely, so I can wear it high or low-waisted!" — Urban Outfitters Reviewer

The best-selling Anthropologie Somerset dress has a maxi-skirt equivalent. 

"Substantial fabric but not heavy. The color is really nice (dark green floral), and the fit is perfect. I typically wear a size M or L, depending on what it is, and this skirt in Medium is an ideal fit. The waist is comfortable and not too poofy. The length for me is as pictured (I'm 5'7"). I think I'll wear this one often!" — Anthropologie Reviewer

The perfect summer-weight white skirt. 

"I cannot rave enough about this skirt! It is so elegant and well-made! It's a nice mid-weight linen fabric, and it's fully lined. I tried on the Small and the Medium and ended up going with the medium because I wanted to wear it a little lower on my waist. It is a maxi skirt, so if you are wanting more of a midi-length, I would order a Petite size. The color is stunning. You will feel like a million bucks in this! I paired mine with a red mock neck top and a skinny black belt." — Anthropologie Reviewer 

The slit adds just the right touch of detail. 

"A great piece to add to your wardrobe! Pairs well with summer tanks, and I get compliments every time I wear it. It's a high waist and runs a little small in the waist, so you may want to size up for versatility. Frayed bottom adds a cool factor." — Anthropologie Reviewer

The pleats are so good. 

"This skirt was a pleasant surprise. The fabric is lovely, and the skirt falls beautifully. Bonus, it has pockets! You can dress it up or down. Order it. You won't be disappointed!" — Anthropologie Reviewer

Linen is always a good idea in the summer. 

If you're a fan of insanely comfy clothing, this soft Plissé material will satisfy you. 

The gathering in the front of the skirt is a nice touch. 

"This skirt is so comfortable and easy to wear out anywhere. It has a liner, so it's not see-through. The fabric is lightweight and airy for hot summer days. I'm obsessed." — Nordstrom Reviewer

This outfit screams "chic vacay with your besties."

The buttons down the front are so cute. 

The ultimate comfy workwear piece.
