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.
