Many of us BA50’s have fond memories of wearing flowy midi and maxi skirts when we were a bit younger. I personally loved wearing them to concerts and street festivals in my 20’s. Fast forward to 2021, and these comfy, easy-to-style skirts feel relevant and fashion-forward and look stylish on women of all ages.
Pair one with a pair of strappy sandals and your favorite tee or button down, maybe tied at the waist, for an effortless look that can go from the farmer’s market to cocktails with friends. Roll one up in your suitcase for a weekend getaway and don’t worry about having to iron it at your destination. Some styles come with a matching top that exposes a bit of your waist, ideal if you are confident in that area. As you can see, the styling possibilities are endless! Below are my top 10 midi and maxi skirts that just might make you feel (for a few minutes!) like you are back in your 20’s again. How fun is that?
