Maxi Skirts ??

Have seen a few maxi skirts in Spring/Summer collections - mostly jersey. Know they've been around a bit this winter, and quite like them, but not sure whether enough to try them or not. I'm tall, so I guess could wear one. My fear at my advanced age would probably be not that I'd look muttony, as with very short skirts, but as if I was still wearing them from last time round, ie frumpy! But perhaps that's more of a danger with midis??

Anyway, what do you s and b lot think of them? And, if you do like them, is there anything particular you'd wear them with, or avoid?

I got a lovely denim maxi from next. One of the very few things I've liked from them. They have rolled it forward to Spring.

It is this one. I ditched the belt though

I wear it in winter with boots and when the warmer weather comes in flat pumps.

thanks for these - that Next denim skirt looks good, and at a good price. Just bumping to see if any additional ideas.
