The midi skirt has dominated warm-weather wardrobes for the past few seasons, leaving longer lengths in the rearview—most notably in the early aughts, when pop icons would pair them with sky-high wedges and platform sandals.
Thankfully, stars are reinventing the maxi this summer, trading up for a less constrained look. Gwyneth Paltrow paired her belted, asymmetrical maxi with a comfy pair of Birkenstocks, a white muscle tee, and bright white shades that oozed chill vibes.
The takeaway? When shopping for a maxi skirt this summer, focus more on how the skirt moves (aka twirl factor) and less on elongating your silhouette.
