7 Gorgeous Long Skirts from Free People ...

Sometimes, less is more. But in the case of maxi skirts, more is more! I love long skirts, especially with tall boots, and this season, but are hot! One of my favorite labels, Free People, has lots of gorgeous new skirts at their site, most of them maxis, and I couldn’t be happier. Here are 7 beautiful long skirts from Free People.

1 FP-1 Mini Denim Print Maxi Skirt

FP-1 Mini Denim Print Maxi Skirt Price: $148.00 at freepeople.com
What happens to the thousands of pairs of Levi’s Jeans that we women discard each year? Well, some of them are repurposed into these gorgeous chiffon maxi skirts! All of them are different, since the Levi’s are recycled, but all of them are beautiful, with layer after layer of chiffon on the bottom and a pair of zip-front Levi’s on the top. Wouldn’t this look adorable with black lace-up boots?

2 Directions in Lace Maxi Slip

This lush lace maxi slip is unlined, sheer, ideal for layering with leggings or tights and a cropped denim jacket. It comes in two colors (tea or black) and features a ruffled hem. It tends to run a little large, and is very, very long, just so you’re aware…

3 CP Shades Plaid Maxi Skirt

CP Shades makes the best clothes, and this skirt is no exception. It’s a pretty tonal plaid, made of hand-dyed 100% cotton with an elastic waistband. How perfect for wearing in winter, with a pair of thick leggings, scrunchy socks or legwarmers, and a pair of chunky, funky boots!

4 Ruffled Layers Maxi Skirt

This frothy, pretty skirt is the ultimate in versatility — pull it up, belt it, and wear it as a tube dress, or pull it down to your hips and wear it as a maxi skirt. Either way, it’s gorgeous, with tiers of satin, lace, and chiffon. It’s available in three rich neutral colors — ivory, grey, and black with brown.

5 FP-1 Desert Florals Maxi Skirt

Usher in spring, or celebrate an Indian summer, with this bright floral-print maxi skirt. It’s semi-sheer, sexy, and longer in the back than in front. Pair with strappy sandals in summer, or with leggings and boots for winter.

6 Cascade Canyon Maxi Skirt

Cascade Canyon Maxi Skirt Price: $78.00 at freepeople.com
We all have our favorite jeans, our comfiest sweater… how about a favorite, comfortable skirt? Layer this with a long cardi or short vest, leggings or tights… the possibilities are endless! It features raw seams and is slightly longer in back than in front.

7 Nicholas K Check Maxi Skirt

This may be the longest, most beautiful skirt I’ve seen in years! It’s ultra-long, far longer in back than front, and features an olive green crinkle plaid, back zip, and elastic waist. It also has shallow side pockets, perfect for a lip balm or change purse. Lovely!
