If you thought all trends were created equal, think again. Some are ultra-wearable, and others look like they were made only to be posted on Instagram. Some are accessible at a range of prices, and others can often feel out of reach. Some trends come around and last for seasons upon seasons, while others fizzle out before you even considered buying in. And of course, some flatter my petite 5’2″ frame, and others are off the table!
If that last sentence resonated with you, stick with me for a minute. The maxi-skirt trend not only suits us petite folks but also checks all the above boxes and more. Whether you splurge on a designer style or snag an H&M or Zara iteration, you’ll wear your purchase for months to come and be so glad you bought in. Looking for proof? Below, you’ll see how to style the maxi skirt for all types of occasions, from casual to dressy, and get a chance to shop my favorites along the way. Just keep scrolling to get started.
