MightyOakVintageCo’s Long Open Pencil Skirt
Place to buy: Etsy
Materials: 97% Polyester 3% Spandex
Size (inches): (Waist, Hips, Length) – 27.00 x 37.00 x 39.00
We start our list with a one-of-a-kind item dating back to the 80s that is both elegant and classy.
This long pencil skirt is practically new and it is made with a combination of polyester and spandex, thus, the design looks clean and feels a bit stretchy.
More importantly, the skirt gives an unusual impression thanks to its double side slits, high waist, and floor-level extension. This type of skirt is rarely seen these days.
But that’s not the only perk, as you can expect the skirt to fit in a very flattering yet elegant way without sacrificing comfort. It combines perfectly with other polyester-made tops and with metallic colours. You will definitely stand out on formal occasions.
Sadly the skirt is only stocked once, so if you like it and you see it available, get it before someone else does!
As with other unique items promoted at Vintage Shape, this skirt may be bought very quickly. To compensate for this, we encourage you to take a look at the seller’s (MightyOakVintageCo) page.
They have a wide selection of similar unique apparel, ranging from tops and coats, all the way up to dresses and a few accessories. All high-quality vintage. The brand is loved by its customers!

Plaid Lace-up High Low Midi Skirt
Price: $36.99 ($22.99 on offer)
Place to buy: RoseGal
Materials: Polyester and Cotton
Sizes (inches): (Waist, Length) – Small: 28.00 x 29.70, Medium: 29.90 x 30.10, Large: 31.90 x 30.50, X-Large: 33.90 x 30.90, XX-Large: 35.80 x 31.30
Asymmetrical skirts are some of the most underrated, yet diverse skirts you can find. They have been around for quite some time, but still, the general public doesn’t seem to pay much attention to them. Big Mistake! This plaid high-low midi skirt is a great example of it.
In combination with the very appealing knee-level and front-back asymmetry, the skirt is printed with a traditional red and black plaid pattern and comes with a set of sexy straps to secure the waist, making it a visually attractive skirt.
Also, the difference in lengths between the front and back creates an illusion, making your butt and the rest of your rear part of your body look bigger than they are.
As for the fabrics, with polyester and cotton being the chosen material, durability and softness are assured.
The skirt is also available in sizes from small up to 2XL but sadly only in one colour. Still, the skirt is perfect for a casual outing on a summer or fall day; if you like going out rocking a skirt, you must try this one, as it comes at a bargain price plus a great discount!
Flap Button Wool-Blend Mini Skirt
Place to buy: Chicwish
Materials: 65% Polyester, 35% Wool
Sizes (inches): (Hip, Waist, Length) – X-Small: 34.50 x 24.50 x 16.50, Small: 36.50 x 26.00 x 17.00, Medium: 38.00 x 27.50 x 17.50
Wool is one of the most traditional fabrics and it is not commonly associated with mini skirts. A skirt having such an unusual combination is definetely worth mentioning.
This Flap mini skirt wraps around your body in a simple way. The big button to secure (it also comes with a concealed zipper on the back) is both useful and a great decoration. A small pocket on the side is also a nice addition.
Its interior is very comfortable as it comes lined, so the wool is not in permanent contact with your skin. It is available in 3 sizes (XS, S, M).
Overall, it is both a sexy and minimalistic skirt with a great vintage look that flows well with other wool apparel.
Make sure to check out the suggestions provided by Chicwish, as the skirt comes in a wide variety of colours but each of them has its own page.
Flower Print Flounced Wrap Maxi Skirt
Price: $34.30 ($21.99 on offer)
Place to buy: RoseGal
Materials: 100% Polyester
Sizes (inches): (Waist, Length) – Medium: 39.40 x 36.60, Large: 41.30 x 37.00, X-Large: 43.30 x 37.40, XX-Large: 45.30 x 37.80, 3X-Large: 47.20 x 38.20
A Maxi skirt with floral print is as vintage as you can get. It is the pinnacle of traditional femininity; a look that should be more common in our society.
The skirt is not only offered at a great price, but it is also designed beautifully. It features an ankle-level A-line silhouette printed with a very artistic floral design. It is a wrap skirt, meaning that it wraps around your waist and ties with a knot.
The skirt is super comfortable and is ideal for a sunny day out.
As for the fitting, available sizes range from M up to 3XL, with these varying the most in the waistline measure; a great thing as most body types will fit adequately in one of these divisions.
If you are into maxi skirts you will love the different outfits that you can create around this skirt!
Tandisk’s Pleated Bell Skirt
Price: $8.99 – US$ 19.99
Place to buy: Amazon
Sizes (inches): (Waist, Length) – Small: 26.00 x 24.50, Medium: 28.00 x 25.00, Large: 31.00 x 25.50, X-Large: 34.00 x 26.00, XX-Large: 37.00 x 26.50
We finish our list with not only one, but a series of the most popular/affordable skirts available at Amazon. Featuring a series of pleated bell-shaped and A-line skirts in numerous colours and patterns, Tandisk provides their customers with soft and breathable cotton skirts with an elastic band to secure the waist and a pair of small pockets.
A wide variety of sizes starting at S and going all the way up to XXL are at your disposal.
Looking at the price you may be inclined to think these are low-quality skirts, however, a lot of people are surprised by the quality of the product. The fabric is matt (non-transparent) and slightly heavy yet it feels soft and comfortable. It is also resistant and keeps its shape.
Common complaint buyers have is the very small size of the pockets that prevent you to store your phone of similar stuff. Also, if you are into top quality skirts, it is natural to complain about the quality, but as we said, by no means the skirts are bad quality.
Having said this, If you are in need of a skirt and you are on a budget, these skirts will do the trick for you!
