SKIRTS come in all different lengths, textures, cuts, fabrics, and styles, and right now the hottest length is the maxi.

For years we have transitioned from mini skirts to midi, but now it's time for the maxi skirts to be revived, and we are here for it.

We have seen a number of influencers opt for maxi skirts, some just skim the ankles, others fall like a puddle train almost, and we love them all.

Some of the popular styles we are seeing the fashion firm wear include maxi slip skirts, which we are totally on board with, as we can style the same way we have for midi slip skirts.

What we love about the maxi satin slip design is they drape off the body, elongate your legs, and look so chic whether you pair with a crop top and bomber, even a shacket, a t-shirt and trainers or boots and heels.

But we have also seen the return of the 90s maxi denim skirts, which we weren't quite expecting, but absolutely work.

I’m a fashion expert – where to buy the best on-trend skirts on high street

Denim maxi skirts come either as a straight floor length, some have a subtle slit in the front, or the side, so not to restrict you racing to the office.

There have been cord designs, as well as linen maxi creations, so you can take this trend from the winter into the spring and summer months.

From straight maxi skirts, figure hugging creations, A-line, straight fit, and looser combat style, there really is plenty to choose from to suit your style preference.

A maxi is not only simple to style, but versatile enough to take you from day to night, the office to after work drinks, shopping spree to date night, but an affordable trend to jump on.

High street brands have delivered in giving us stylish maxi skirts, we have shared some of our favourite designs you won't want to miss out on.


ASOS has an impressive collection of everything, including skirts, and in particular maxi, and midaxi skirts.

Whether you are looking for a sultry satin bias number, denim maxi skirt, tailored number, or a more loose fitting, then the cargo style are the perfect match.

  • ASOS DESIGN maxi cargo skirt with belt detail, £38 from ASOS – buy here


Topshop never fail to deliver, as it has created plenty of maxi, and midaxi, skirts, to suit every style, budget and shape.

While we are obsessed with Topshop's satin maxi skirts, which fall to the floor, we also love the tailored design as the front split gives room to move without looking too informal.

  • Topshop co-ord 90's midaxi tailored skirt, £50 from ASOS – buy here

River Island

When we think of skirts in general we instantly think of the popular satin bias skirts we have been wearing endlessly for years.

The trend hasn't gone anywhere, but the latest look is to extend the length of the skirt a little so it is ankle, or floor length.

What we love about the satin style is you can dress up or down, which makes it great value for money and super versatile.

  • Black RI Studio Satin Maxi Skirt, £35 from River Island – buy here


For those who want a simple maxi skirt, but not too simple, it is a fine line and a hard one to juggle, but Mango has made it happen.

Mango' s Gathered Waist Skirt is maxi length, straight fitting, which combined with the flowy fabric just glides down the body, while the elastic pleated waistband not only cinches you in, conceals the area some may be conscious of, while also adding extra detail.

  • Gathered waist skirt, £49.99 from Mango – buy here


M&S stocks a variety of brands, including one of our favourites, Nobody's Child.

Maxi skirts do not have to be clingy, combat, or denim, they can be bohemian with a floral print and A-line style too.

  • Nobody's Child Floral Button Front Midi A-Line Skirt, £45 from M&S – buy here

New Look

We had to double take New Look's Jersey High Waist Maxi Skirt wasn't a SKIMS alternative, because it really looks like it is.

This design is selling out fast, and we're not surprised as it is super flattering, affordable, versatile, and a very close designer dupe.

  • Black Jersey High Waist Maxi skirt, £22.99 from New Look – buy here

& Other Stories

If you want to get on board the maxi skirt trend, but want to make it work appropriate, we think & Other Stories has nailed it.

This creation is super flattering, and it's a more fixed fabric so not to crease, perfect for those commuting in to work for a big meeting they want to look presentable for.

  • 90s Style Midi Skirt, £95 from & Other Stories – buy here


Aligne is the go-to for trusted denim jeans, and now, maxi skirts too.

This creation ticks all the boxes in our opinion, as it is structured, fitted in the right places, but not too tight and restrictive.

Yet the knee-high split, and pocket detail makes this super fun, perfect to wear day or night, so you always feel "done".

  • Hershy Utility Maxi Cotton Skirt, £75 from Aligne – buy here


When we think of maxi skirts, we often think of the denim designs we used to wear in the nineties and noughties.

A denim design is the one to shop as it goes with any outfit, can be dressed up or down, and is minimalist effort with maximum effect.

  • Long Denim Comfortable Skirt, £29.99 from Stradivarius – buy here

Hyphen Store

We have long followed fashion influencer Emily Moloney, who launched her own label Hyphen Store, which has been loved by famous faces – including Rochelle Humes.

There are plenty of mini designs to shop, as well as maxi creations, which have recently creeping in.

We are torn between the Sheer Floral Maxi Skirt and the sheer lace maxi, but it transpires more maxi skirts will be launching soon.

  • Sheer Floral Maxi Skirt, £110 from Hyphen Store – buy here


If you are looking to dabble in the trend without spending a fortune, you know Shein can deliver.

The Dazy design is formal, yet effortless, can be dressed for everyday wear, to the office, or Sunday brunching.

  • DAZY High Waist Split Hem Skirt, £15.49 from Shein – buy here

Emory Park

Emory Park may not be on your radar, but it should be, especially as it is available to shop online at ASOS.

For those looking for a casual look, this cargo skirt is the answer.It offers a little more femininity than cargo trousers, but isn't too exposing or skimpy either – just the perfect mix.

  • Emory Park pinstripe cargo midaxi skirt in khaki, £40 from ASOS – buy here


We know £200 is not necessarily the most purse friendly price tag but we couldn't recommend maxi skirts without putting Reformation's Gia Linen Skirt in the mix.

This design is super lightweight and flattering, thanks to the linen fabric, which makes for the perfect staple in your summer, or holiday, wardrobe.

We love a belt, so we are thrilled to learn this design has belt loops, as well as front fastening for a comfortable fit, and to allow for accessorising.

  • Gia Linen Skirt, £200 from Reformation – buy here
