While most people might wait for the spring or summer to pull out their favorite long skirts, I get the most wear out of mine in the colder months simply because of one styling cue—pairing them with boots. Once I started wearing the outfit combo, I couldn't convince myself to wear my maxis and midis with anything else. Even if I opt for fabrics like satin or silk, a pair of leggings and knee-highs can go a long way, I promise.
And while brands release a variety of skirts for the summer consisting of florals and bright colorways, it's the fall and winter styles that end up catching my eye. From ribbed and leather to pleats and velvet, the variety of the latter just ends up suiting my style a little bit more. Longer lengthen skirts also showed plenty on the 2021 runways with wrap skirts and knit pieces already taking center stage on the fashion scene.
Ahead, you'll find 30 of the best long skirts I found that I'll gladly want to wear with a pair of boots right now in a range of fabrics, colors, and prints. There's something for everyone, trust me.
