This floor-sweeping trend is making a comeback: midaxi skirts.

Cozy by day and elegant at night, the midaxi (combination of midi and maxi) skirt is making a case for itself as a new closet essential – and it definitely delivers on versatility. From denim to silky satin, this modest skirt has many iterations. Here, we turn to your favourite style setters on how to elevate and modernize the look.

For daytime outfit inspirations, look to Swedish supermodel and designer Elsa Hosk for a 90’s grunge spin –  styling it up with an oversized bomber jacket, a vintage Hermes Kelly, mesh turtleneck top and low-heeled pumps. Pernille Teisbaek keeps it casual, classic and cool, completing the look with a pocket polo shirt, Prada hobo shoulder bag and a Gia Borghini faux shearling double strap sandals. Influencer Mimi Arr champions business casual in a coordinating blazer and split maxi skirt teamed with Adidas Samba OG sneakers.

For your after-work plans, take this trend up a notch and get styling cues from model Phoebe Torrance and wear it with a cropped long-sleeve top, velvet boots and a pearl necklace – or elevate a simple white T-shirt and maxi skirt combo with an oversized blazer, knee-high boots and a Bottega Venetta Sardine bag like Aureum Collective’s co-founder Cass Dimicco. Alternatively, for a more sophisticated take, look to Sophia Roe and pair it with a parachute sleeveless top and a slick bun.
