1) Do you wear them?
2) Are maxi skirts out of style? Especially if we're talking about fall/winter skirts, not summer ones.

For some reason every time I try it on, I look either older than I am, or out of style, like I'm dressing like a grandma.

I wear a black, sometimes navy, maxi skirt daily to work and love them. My favorite is the Sonoma maxi without a slit from Kohls, but they have discontinued them and currently only have a few sizes on clearance. I found they lasted the longest and retained their color the best. I will miss them

I wear them often, both skirts and dresses. Because our winters are fairly mild, the only difference between "spring/summer" and "fall/winter" skirts is the addition of tights, and boots v. sandals, assuming fairly neutral colors/patterns and knit material (I wouldn't necessarily wear a floaty, chiffon skirt in snowy weather, for instance, but most of mine are jersey knit).

Considering that most apparel merchandisers, at least here, are overflowing with them, I would say not out of style in this region. Grandma looks, here, are more likely to be elastic waistband slacks and sensible, Naturalizer shoes, anyway.

I don't wear them, because I'm short and long-waisted and they're not flattering. I usually wear my skirts knee length or a couple inches longer.

I love Maxi length skirts and dresses, but they tend to get caught in my chair casters at work, and occasionally step on them when climbing stairs.

I think long versions will always be around to some extent.

I think both maxi skirts and maxi dresses are great! You can pair them up with different clothing styles based on the season. I love to wear my boots with both

The key is buying ones that flatter your figure, maxi or not, you can still find them that fit you well and not look all boxy or too big.

No, I'd just hurt myself.

2) Are maxi skirts out of style? Especially if we're talking about fall/winter skirts, not summer ones.

I haven't seen many this year, but they're still around. You could always shorten it if you don't want a maxi next year.

I love my long skirts that go to around my ankles. But actual "maxi" skirts go to your feet (or sometimes to the floor). I just think those look bad, on myself and on other people. I think your feet and ankles should at least show.

I wear them around the house a lot. I also wear them to the pool over my swimsuit like a cover-up (and maxi dresses). But that's about it. I don't wear them out anywhere as in to work or out to eat or anything like that. They just seem sort of like sweatpants to me, so casual.
