Denim dreams: The ‘90s denim skirt revival is holding sway – here’s how to wear it
If you’re in the market for a work-life-approved item, the denim skirt is your friend – here’s your street style debrief on how it’s best worn
First teased on the spring-summer ‘23 runways of Givenchy, Burberry, Altazurra, and Ulla Johnson, the denim skirt has received the grown up treatment from last summer’s micro mini skirt, and is refreshed for the season with maxi cuts, deconstructed detailing, and patchwork panelling.
Its best feature is its dress-up or dress-down appeal, with fashion week guests dashing to shows in the function-first skirt paired with chunky boots or sportswear trainers, while others opted to level up the denim with the addition of kitten heels or pops of metallic. So if you’re in the market for a work-life-approved item, the denim skirt is your friend – here’s your
street style debrief on how to wear it.
