With the groundbreaking return of some of the biggest 90s fashion trends in 2023, the maxi denim skirt became the most widely spread spring staple piece of the year! We saw the fashion item all over Fashion Week, on and off the runway, and worn by the likes of some of the biggest it-girls, such as Bella Hadid and Irina Shayk. However, everything seems to look flawless when it comes to fashion and styling until it reaches the closet of a regular person. As a petite woman myself, the maxi denim skirt is a trend I was shying away from for a while because I couldn’t figure out a way to make it work for my small frame – until now!

How to Style a Denim Maxi Skirt for Petite Women?
Forget about the age-old myth that short women should stay away from long skirts. The trick is in the proportions. If you’re a petite woman, when buying a denim maxi skirt make sure that it’s at least 2 inches above your ankles. Because denim is quite a thick and heavy fabric, if the skirt reaches all the way down to the ground it will have the opposite effect and make you look wider and shorter. Slits and asymmetrical silhouettes are also great ways to complement your figure. Scroll down to see the best denim maxi skirts for petite women that will make you feel like a 90s fashion icon!

Front Slit High-Waisted Ankle-Length Denim Maxi Skirt
Dress up the denim skirt trend for a brunch date in the city with a pair of metallic pointy stilettos in a vibrant color and a complementing metallic handbag. Pair with a long black coat to add a pinch of effortless elegance and a nude top to balance out the rest of the outfit.
Office Chic Style with a Denim Maxi Skirt
Another great way to style a maxi denim skirt during the colder months is by pairing it with knee-high black boots. They will make your legs appear slimmer and longer when peeking through the front slit of the skirt. This helps create an overall elongating effect on your whole figure.
Asymmetrical Long Denim Skirt for Petite Frame
As I mentioned above, when buying a maxi denim skirt, unless there is a slit to open up the silhouette, it’s good to aim for a length that’s at least 2 inches above your ankles. This asymmetrical long denim skirt is a great example of how the disproportionate silhouette can add dimension and the slightly shorter end of the skirt will elongate your legs.
Calf-Length Denim Skirt for a Slender Petite Figure
In the spirit of the 90s, a stunning way to style this calf-length denim skirt is by pairing it with an oversized neon blazer statement piece!
Two Piece Canadian Tuxedo with a Maxi Skirt
Another beautiful example of how high heel black boots create the optical illusion of elongated legs, but in this case peeking through the front slit of a two-tone denim long skirt. The black belt in coherence with the boots, as well as the denim in the same color as the darker denim from the skirt, ties the whole outfit together perfectly!
