Rachel Green Would Definitely Wear This '90s Trend in 2020

Jennifer Aniston's character Rachel Green of Friends was often spotted wearing the biggest fashion pieces of the moment, which included many of the major ‘90s trends we still remember today. Recently, I was watching an episode when it occurred to me that her maxi tube skirt was very on-trend for 2020. In fact, I’ve been seeing the long, slinky skirt all over Instagram recently and have started to see the piece landing in the new arrivals sections at my favorite retailers. 

Poised to make a huge comeback this fall, tube skirts are without doubt a Rachel Green-approved trend to keep your eye on in the coming months. Not only is it a great comfortable yet stylish anti-loungewear option to swap in for sweatpants, but it’s very versatile. Paired with a matching tube top, you can instantly recreate one of the most iconic looks from the ‘90s. However, you can also style one with an off-the-shoulder cropped cardigan or a one-shoulder tank to make it feel very 2020. Ahead, see inspiration for how to wear the trend and then shop my edit of the best tube skirts on the market.

For a 2020 take on a tube skirt outfit, pair one with a one-shoulder tank top. I predict the top silhouette is one we'll see take off this year, so you can't go wrong with this look.

The perfect transitional look

For a transitional look, add a simple tank top, oversize blazer, and slides. Once we hit cooler temperatures for fall, you can add a pair of knee-high boots.

For a 2020 take on the tube skirt, look to the lace-up versions that have ties at the waist. We've already seen this silhouette gain huge traction this year, but I think it'll only be picking up steam. Adding a cropped cardigan is an on-point way to wear the look right now.
