the denim skirt is having a new moment.
The ’90s and early-aughts throwback trend is making the rounds this summer, in varying lengths and styles — as seen here on Bella Hadid, Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner.
Denim skirts were popular in the ’70s, when boho types retooled their jeans into a breezier version, but it wasn’t until the ’90s that denim skirts became “the look,” thanks to the grunge movement and movies like “Clueless.”
Anyone who grew up in the early aughts can attest to the onslaught of the Abercrombie & Fitch denim-miniskirt craze. You could visit any dimly lit A&F store in any mall, and you were guaranteed to see a clutch of young girls in matching A&F tees, chokers and, of course, distressed denim miniskirts.
The trend peaked and fell, as trends do, but it’s finally making its way back around. Denim lovers, to the mall!
