We all know how big Y2K fashion is right now. Cargo pants are huge, but if you’re more into dresses, why not try a cargo skirt?
Cargo skirts are making a surprising resurgence this summer as a stylish and versatile fashion item. I wasn’t convinced about the trend – that is, until I got inspired by its appearance at Fashion Week.

I’m a lover of baggy clothes. There’s nothing worse than feeling restricted by what you’re wearing, but there’s no chance of that happening with a cargo skirt.
As the Y2K fashion trend continues to gain momentum, the demand for utility-inspired designs is on the rise this season. Get ready to see an abundance of rugged denim, XXL pockets, buckles, and an all-encompassing utilitarian theme.
Brands like Miu Miu embraced the cargo look for SS23, with models in acid wash denim skirts with large cargo pockets, Indiana Jones-style jackets, belt bags, vests, and shorts making their way down the runway.
From mini to midi and maxi lengths, A-line to body-hugging fits, I promise there is a cargo skirt that will fit your personal style.
Whether you’re leaning into the Y2K trend or just curious about the chic utilitarian look, cargo skirts are the way to go.
Here’s our edit of the best cargo skirts you can buy right now.
