Ode to the Maxi Skirt: Sweatpants in Disguise

For those of you who have yet to discover the wonder of the maxi skirt, let me introduce you...

How do we love the maxi skirt? Let me count the ways:

  1. Didn't shave? NO PROBLEM! Because no one can see your legs!
  2. Feeling lazy? Maxi skirts are super easy to wear. You can pair them with anything: tanks, button downs, Ts, ANYTHING! 
  3. Feeling fat/bloated? The maxi skirt sits at your waist, making it look tiny, and hides everything else below the belt you might not be feeling so great about.
  4. Maxi skirts are UBER comfy. They are usually super soft AND have elastic waistbands! (Double win!)
  5. They work great in all seasons! They are long enough to cover your legs and keep you warm in the winter and breezy enough to wear all summer long. 
  6. Maxis look great with flats, sandals, boots, or heels!
  7. Maxi skirts can easily be dressed up or down to fit the occasion:
    • With a sparkly necklace = Glam Maxi
    • With a colorful scarf = Cute Maxi
    • With a cardigan or blazer = Profesh Maxi
    • With a jean jacket = Weekend Maxi
Basically, these are awesome skirts that have the same feel as sweatpants but look way chic-er! 
You should get on board.


  1. "Smalls" should fill us in on where short people can find maxi skirts that fit! I've wanted one for years, never found one that fits me!

  2. "let me count the ways" haha! love this....never been a big fan of maxis, but you have me convinced! :)

  3. Kate: unfortunately there isn't a maxi skirt store for "small" LOL. Just like with pants, you just have to try on every maxi that you find until you find one that is right for you. If you find one that you REALLY love and its too long, get it hemmed!
