PSA: Denim maxi skirts are "in" again. Borderline risque mini skirts may have had their moment recently, thanks to the upturn of Y2K style, but lengthier iterations of the closet staple are also steadily seeping into our wardrobes. Need proof? Just look to the kitschy Spring/Summer 2023 runways of labels like Masha Popova and Balenciaga. The floor-grazing piece has definitely entered the conversation and has become an MVP for anyone who loves casual streetwear.
Local Influencers Wearing Denim Maxi Skirts
For some pointers on how to rock the relatively modest but still as cool piece, we've rounded up some style stars who've already sensed its resurgence. Pro tip we're gleaning from them: Team the skirt with your favorite pair of kicks. It'll certainly bring your 'fit to cool-girl territory!
1. Rhea Bue
Rhea Bue jumped right out of a 2000s chick flick with this edgy OOTD. She paired her denim maxi with a cropped graphic tee, a leather moto-jacket, and Nike Air Jordans. Going along with the blue of her skirt were her appropriately Y2K-themed shades.
2. Angelique Manto
Teaming the skirt with an oversized boxy blazer? Sign us up! Here, Angelique Manto chills out in the casual combo, finishing the 'fit off with a simple gray bralette, a pair of dad sneakers, and a cap. Oh, and a Balenciaga Le Cagole worn as a crossbody, too.
3. Imelda Evangelista
The skirt is a great option for warm days out, since it gives you coverage on your bottom half without a tight, sweat-inducing fit (depending on the style you go for, of course). Make like Imelda Evangelista and simply slip into it with a bright-colored tank top, sneakers, and your go-to tote.
Our girl Mimiyuuuh was one of the first personalities we spotted rocking this frock. As always, she went down the extra route and wore the skirt and sneakers combo with a flamboyant fuchsia tube top that had a large statement bow.
For a more laidback affair, Mimi cozied up in the skirt with an oversized baby blue hoodie, which matched with her high-top trainers. Capping things off was, well, a cap, and her Chanel Le Boy handbag.
5. Ida Anduyan
Zhush up your Canadian tuxedo OOTD by pairing together a frayed iteration of the maxi with a cropped jacket worn as a top. Ida Anduyan is certainly making a good case for the look!
