Skirt Showdown: Maxi vs. Mini

Skirt Showdown

The maxi skirt is the trend that just won’t go away. Don’t get me wrong – I love the billowing silhouette of a flowy skirt, but sometimes it can drown petite Snobs like myself, especially when paired with flat sandals. I’m a mini kind of girl (they elongate your legs and make you look taller!). Which side are you on – the maxis or the minis? Vote in the poll below!

Ellery Two Split Skirt: This brings the maxi skirt to new levels of hideous. I was just talking about how Riri slit her skirt up too far – same issue here. If you want to show some leg, just wear a mini! On Shopbop for $975.

Tibi Pleated Silk Crepe de Chine Maxi Skirt: Peach pink silk and pleating make for a seriously sophisticated maxi. On NET-A-PORTER for $395.

Giambattista Valli floral-Print Silk Chiffon Maxi Skirt: Paisley has been around since the 200s – it was definitely time for an update! Giambattista’s modernizes the print with watercolor florals. On NET-A-PORTER for $2,795.

KAUFMANFRANCO Silk-Satin Pleated Maxi Skirt: A lot of maxis fall into boho territory. It’s refreshing to see a more elegant, structured take on the style. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,495.

Roberto Cavalli Printed Crepe de Chine Maxi Skirt: This is how you split a dress – so subtly that you don’t even notice it at first. Paired with the innocent porcelain-inspired pattern, Cavalli’s maxi is perfectly ladylike. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,955.
