The must-have maxi skirts that you can dress up or down, all year round

Okay, so, aesthetically spring has taken full effect. We’ve been blessed with blue skies stretching on into the evenings, we’re seeing the buds of new life forming in nature — but it’s still pretty baltic when you’re not in the direct glare of sunlight. How does one accurately distil this feeling into an outfit while remaining weather appropriate?

Enter maxi skirts. Or perhaps more accurately, here maxi skirts remain, at the centre of your wardrobe and the forefront of your mind. The kind of clothing item that is never retired for a season because it’s just so damn versatile, and allows you to embrace a seasonal style shift with some simple styling swaps.

Team it with a plain white tee and a pair of slingback heels for date night, or throw on a chunky oversized knit and a pair of chunky boots or trainers and you’ve got yourself an outfit that can take you from the office to Sunday brunch and around the shops. It also makes it look like you put a lot of time into crafting this put-together look, when you’re really just opting for comfort above all else.

A capsule item from the ‘90s that still has us in a chokehold three decades later. Depending on the pattern of material, you can embody Phoebe Buffay’s bohemian energy, Gwyneth Paltrow’s effortless chicness, or the feminine grunginess straight out of The Craft.

We’ve heralded in the era of the full length denim skirt, we’re zeroing in on the longer hemlines and ankle grazers in just about every style and material we could think of. From low-rise baggy cargo fits to silky slips and the comfort of cotton, here are some of the best maxi skirts to add to your wardrobe.
