Cynthia: They’re baaaaaaack!
Marcy: What’s back?
Cynthia: Knee-length spring skirts. I thought we’d be wrestling with mid-thigh skirts forever. My knees were getting so embarrassed.
Marcy (shuddering at the thought of Cynthia’s knees): You think your knees were embarrassed, how about your cat?
Cynthia: Well, you and my knees can rejoice because knee-length skirts is where it’s at. The beige chevron striped skirt I am wearing here is from ModCloth.
Cynthia: It’s a cotton/linen blend. It sits at the waist and has pockets. It has a tendency to wrinkle (you know, linen) but not so much that I am put off by it. It’s super comfy, goes with everything and… it’s on sale for $34.99! Yeah, baby!
Cynthia performs a groovy skirt/sale disco dance while yelling “woot woot.” Much to Marcy’s disgust.
Cynthia (still grooving): Knee-length a-line skirts are always twirl-worthy and have a cool feminine 70’s vibe.
Marcy: If you start singing Andy Gibb songs I’m leaving.
Cynthia stops suddenly. She takes a deep breath. She looks at Marcy with a sappy smile.
She scoops up Marcy.
Cynthia (singing an Andy Gibb song): “I just want to be your everything…”
Marcy leaps off of Cynthia in a hissy fit and hides in the closet. She plans to stay there until Cynthia’s disco fever has ended.
Cynthia (calling after her): Fine, Marcy. I don’t need to disco dance when there are knee-length spring skirts to buy!
Okay, Awesome Readers, join me after the jump break for some shameless shopping for the best knee-length skirts this spring!

Six more super spectacular spring skirts!
|Pilcro Distressed Denim Midi Skirt at Anthropologie|
I tried this one on in the store. It runs a bit big and is quite heavy but it perfectly captures that “easy breezy Southern California in the ’70’s vibe” that is so popular right now. I am still thinking about this one.
|Shadow Stripe Midi Skirt at Anthropologie|
I really like how this Leifsdottir skirt is light and romantic but also sexy. The shorter underskirt is very much on trend right now.
|Halogen Eyelet Pleat Front Skirt|
OMG! An electric pink eyelet skirt. OMG!
|Halogen Pleat Midi Skirt (also in denim)|
Mint is still in style this year! I like how the pleats start a little lower on the hip. Very flattering. Kate Spade New York ‘Garden Leaves’ Skirt
|Kate Spade ‘garden leaves’ print flare skirt|
Someday I will be able to afford Kate Spade. Someday. In the meantime, I will just sit here and sigh longingly.
|JCrew Collection Lace Circle Skirt|
So pretty. And so practical (it’s machine washable!). You could really spring -ify this with a white or pink or yellow top.
And now, I will stop staring at skirts or we will be here all day. Really, there are so many lovely ones out there. I’m so excited – I thought this trend would never come back. Woot woot!
Let me know if you are on board with this trend or will stick with the shorter lengths!
