We’ve been so busy over the last year debating whether it is micro miniskirts or long maxi skirts that deserve our undivided attention that we missed what is perhaps the biggest skirt trend of them all—knee-length skirts. They were displayed on the runway at Prada, Jil Sander, Miu Miu, Chanel, and plenty more as well as on Instagram’s never-ending feed, worn by Bella Hadid and Jen Ceballos. The just-right skirt style is quickly but quietly making the rounds in fashion, but it won’t go unnoticed for much longer.
With summer nearly in full swing, it’s time to welcome skirt season, a time when pants are far too stifling and the breezy and billowy nature of skirts allows them to reign supreme. And while mini and maxi skirts have thus far dominated the 2022 zeitgeist, this silhouette (which has experienced multiple runs at the top of the fashion food chain throughout history) is coming for the top spot in our collections.
Ahead is all the proof you need to prioritize knee-length skirts over all others this summer.
