Rewind to a year ago and mini skirts were one of the most talked about fashion items of Spring/Summer 2022. Most notably, Miu Miu’s pleated micro mini skirts were red hot and seen on the hips of some of fashion’s biggest names like Hunter Schafer, Emily Ratajkowski and Dua Lipa, as well as dudes like Manu Rios and Conan Gray. But a new contender is aiming for the top spot occupied by the itty-bitty skirt this season. Enter the denim maxi skirt trend which is sweeping retail floors and street style.
A denim maxi skirt with a mermaid silhouette as seen at brands like Burberry and instantly gives the garment a dressed-up look.

Ahead, an edit of skirts for whatever the occassion.
