Question: Is It Permissible to Wear Maxi Skirts?

Answer: Assalamualaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray this finds you well.

For as long as your maxi skirt and cardigan are loose (not figure-hugging) and covers your awrah, then it is permissible to wear. Basically, wear clothes which you can pray in.

Clothes become impermissible to wear when it is figure-hugging and/or exposes your awrah. Wearing tight socks is fine.

May Allah grant you success in dressing in a way which pleases Him.
