This Will Be the Most Popular Skirt Trend of 2020

Call us impatient, but here at Who What Wear we can’t wait to get ahead of some of the biggest trends spring 2020 has to offer (colorful leather, Bermuda shorts, and polka dots to name a few). But today we’re focusing on skirts—one of the chicest items to mix and match that you can wear year-round. So what’s the biggest skirt trend to look forward to in 2020? While pleated and leather skirts will still be in the limelight, the unexpected denim skirt is back and cooler than ever.

From Celine to Stella McCartney and Givenchy, the S/S 20 runways delighted us with vintage-inspired iterations, keeping with the season’s up-cycled vibe. If the denim skirt looks like it could have been pulled straight out of a thrift store—then you’ve nailed the trend! While there were all different lengths of denim skirts on the runways, midi lengths definitely reigned supreme.

The best part is that they’re so versatile and easy-to-wear—just like your favorite pair of jeans. Wear them belted at the waist with sweaters and blouses tucked into them. While it’s still cold out pair them with knee-high boots and once the temps start to rise, throw them on with sandals. Scroll below to see the trend on the runway and shop the coolest denim skirts on the internet right now so you can get ahead of the trend before everyone else.
