Shopping Help: Maxi Skirts

Clearly I’ve had maxi-length stuff on the brain this past week.  But, whatcha gonna do about it…I’m pregnant and maxi stuff is a favorable alternative to jeans!

I’ve been asked a few times where I get my maxi skirts (Target and Old Navy mostly, and I’ve seen some affordable and colorful ones from Windsor…) but more than anything I’ve been asked about maxi dresses/skirts for petite and tall women.  I feel SO unfamiliar with either of those sizing groups, though both Target and Old Navy carry some things in petites and ON carries tall sizes.

If you know of other stores for petite or tall maxi skirts/dresses please comment below!  Thanks on behalf of the petites/talls looking for help!

*If the option has an asterisk next to it, then there’s a petite or tall version too.


*Option 1 (Target)  |  Petite Version HereGreat basic jersey cotton maxi skirt.  Sooooo comfy!  Comes in blue, maroon, and black.  

Option 2 (JCPenney) – This is a cool twist (no pun intended!) on a solid, soft knit maxi skirt.  Gives it some interest without needing a pattern or print.

Option 3 (Target) – I love when maxi skirts have elastic waists, and this one’s got one!  Also comes in a grey, navy, and a sort of muted green/teal thing.  <– That’s the technical term, in case you’re wondering.

*Option 4 (Target)  |  Petite Version HereAnother elastic waist option with a fuller, flouncier skirt.  Really pretty and feminine, if you’re looking for something with a little more draping than option 1.  Comes in light grey and black.

A little pattern goes a long way.  Just throw a plain tee or tank on with one of these, add a simple pendant necklace, and you’re good to go!  

*Option 5 (Old Navy)  |  Petite and Tall – I own and love this one!  It’s thicker than other maxi skirts I’ve tried and has an elastic waistband.  Also comes in black, grey, red, and cobalt, plus a cute coral-y red paisley print.

Option 6 (Windsor) – Comes in mint/white, black/white, and other variations too!  

Option 7 (Target) – A fun variation of a normal striped maxi–chevron!  Makes it a little more interesting while still being far from over the top.  If I didn’t already have a navy striped maxi skirt I’d totally consider this one.  I’m imagining it with bright solids like coral, yellow, or kelly green.  How fun!

Option 8 (BonTon) – Small chevron stripes!  Also comes in black/white.  I like this one as a lighter neutral striped skirt.  You could pair this with bright solids like coral too!

I’ve already got solid and striped maxi skirts, so next on the radar is PRINTS!  I love each of these skirts, so it’s going to be hard to choose which prints to go for!  

Option 9 (Dillard’s) – I love the colors!  You can pick any color from the print and match it with a t-shirt in that color.  This is an effortless way to look chic–the print is so present that you let the print do all the work for you!

Option 10 (Charlotte Russe) – I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something about this floral pattern that I adore.  It’s also jersey knit, so it’s that soft and comfy material but with a great print.

Option 11 (Target) – Really pretty floral pattern made even prettier with the flounciness of the skirt!  How cute would this be with a tank and a sun hat?  Also comes in a cool “spotty animal” print.

Option 12 (Dillard’s) – Fun tribal print in a neutral color palette!  

What kind of maxi skirt would you add to your wardrobe next?
