Mini maxis

Is it just me, or are skirts getting shorter?  Even with long maxis and midis trending, it still seems like things are just simply made shorter.  I was trying on a maxi skirt the other day (at least, I think it was meant to be a maxi) and it came a little lower than my calves.  Trying on regular skirts is no better.  Though they're not labelled as mini skirts, I find that most skirts border on that 'too short to be acceptable' line.  Remember that good ol' index finger rule? I find it hard to comply with that now.  It seems as though the index rule has changed to the pinky rule. 


I've been looking for a skirt similar to the one above- bright, A-lined, and adorable for a casual or semi-professional encounter.  But would you please take a look at the space between the hemline and her fingers.  Though the look itself is very put-together, the length of that skirt makes it difficult for everyday practicality. I didn't mind as much when the only outdoor activity I had was getting in and out of a car, but now as a student that needs to bus and walk everywhere, it makes the search for skirts trickier.  Short lengths and thin summery materials are no match for even the slightest of winds.

  2. Shorts have definitely lost some fabric length! Have to be really careful getting in and out of cars!

  3. I know exactly what you mean!! Its tricky, because as cute as mini's are, they're not quite perfect for day-to-day wear... Although, I LOVE the look above, so if there's any way you could make it work, I say GO FOR IT!! Maybe pair it with patterned tights?

  4. What a pretty color. I love that skirt. I see what you mean. Mini skirts are just not practical for busy girls. For an important date/meeting though, I think this length would work. Try it.

  5. I completely agree, why make skirts so short, its not attractive seeing someone pulling heir skirt down all the time to stop them showing their underwear! and it really is a nightmare in the wind!

  7. I love the color of that skirt! Yes, I know what you mean about minis, and if you are tall like me, definitely hard to pull off.

  8. It is a lovely skirt but I think I would be terrified of sitting down and flashing someone. That color is amazing though. Hermes orange haha.

  9. I totally agree! I went to see Bridesmaids yesterday and every skirt/dress they had Kristen Wieg wearing seemed dangerously short to me.
