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.
How Rachel Green wore a tube skirt
Snapped on the set of Friends in 1996, here, Rachel Green wears the tube skirt trend. Paired with a matching long sleeve top, this look is the epitome of cool, minimal '90s style.
How to style a tube skirt in 2020
To achieve a '90s-inspired look, pair a tube skirt with a matching tube top and flip flops. There is honestly no outfit that nails style from the decade better than this one.
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.
Ribbed knits are another trend that will be huge for fall 2020, so this outfit hits on two closet essentials for the upcoming season.
