Take it to the max in these trending denim skirts & 12 ways to style them
Denim maxi skirts are pushing out the mini this Spring and Summer. Although it’s still OK to wear mini‘s and midis. This year the denim maxi skirt trend is leaning towards more fitted, streamline styles and hems that hit the floor. This silhouette is flattering on all body types and heights which I’m thankful for. As the more voluminous styles drown my 5’2″ frame. Whether you go for a classic style or something more on trend, these are the styles trending right now.

Are denim maxi dresses in style for 2023
Yes, maxi’s are even more in style for 2023 than denim mini skirts. All washes of long denim skirts are in from the lightest blue and distressed denim to the deepest indigo. However, if you’re going for a floor skimming style you might want to go for a darker wash to avoid permanently stained and grubby hems.
Dark Blue Denim Maxi Skirt
One of the best women’s denim maxi skirts for classic style and quality and this price point. Just add a crisp white crop top or t-shirt for a fresh, effortless look that’s flattering on everyone. I personally like this look with the navy Dior Dway slides for a coordinated and sophisticated look that doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard.
Mini or maxi? The best of both worlds
Can’t decide between a mini or a maxi? This best seller checks off both and is a great way for flaunting your legs. It also tends to be more flattering on us petite girls as it works better with our proportions and doesn’t cut us off at the ankles.
If you don’t want a waddle skirt and like to have more freedom of movement this looser fit style is ideal. It’s a new release but the solid wash and classic cut means it’s a style that you can wear year after year.
Black denim maxi skirt
What’s more versatile than a blue maxi? A black denim maxi skirt. Style it the same way as all of the denim maxi skirt outfit ideas below but it goes with more colors than blue. It’s also a great color choice for Fall and Winter.

These are the styles I’m eyeing this season. From the styles seen on the runways and fashion set to luxe for less alternatives. It doesn’t have to be blue, red denim maxi skirts were also seen on the fashionistas attending Spring 2023 fashion shows.
If you’re looking for one of the most popular brands for this trend it’s Khaite and Ganni. For something different, go for a patchwork maxi, asymmetrical waist or hemline, or different color style.
If you’re petite, consider trying a longer length midi which will probably work out as a maxi without the need for hemming! For a designer denim maxi skirt, Burberry’s floor skimming trumpet maxi is a total head turner and statement piece. For super long hems you might want to keep a stain remover stick handy!

Layer up with a hoody, sweatshirt or roll neck sweater as we head in Fall/Winter and knee high boots or lug sole boots.

Add long opera gloves for a touch of drama. This looks great with slicked back hair and edgy touches that keep the casual balanced with the glam gloves.

With a halterneck top and wedges for a casual and effortless outfit for the Spring or Summer that’s right on trend. Halternecks also tend to be both flattering and sexy for creating a soft and feminine look.
11. Classic style
A simple white button down shirt tucked in or knotted at the front will always look timeless and sophisticated. Just watch your footwear and go for current trends like mules, spool heels, loafers, strappy heels or platforms, to keep this look fresh not dated.
12. Make it your own
A white tank and white pumps or sneakers with your maxi is a classic style that you can keep simple or is easy to change up with different belts, shoes and accessories.
Styled with cropped and Y2K-esque tops in summer, and cropped jackets and knee-high boots for winter, the most favoured maxi style is undoubtedly the split hem, allowing for flashes of skin between the heavy, floor scraping fabric.
