Searches Are Already Soaring For This Noughties Style Staple

Expect to see a lot more of it too.

Noughties fashion has been coming back for quite some time now, but there’s one trend I wasn’t expecting to see so soon: maxi skirts.

The former style staple was favoured by stars including Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Naomi Campbell back in the day, but they’re gradually coming back.

Zoe Kravitz has been a fan of them for some time. The star wore a Saint Laurent black maxi in 2019, and a number of long skirts from The Row again last year.

Meanwhile Dua Lipa, J-Lo and Zendaya have been favouring the style over the past couple of years too, whether at red carpet events or as casual ensembles.

Then the style started popping up on the runway. For AW22, Saint Laurent, Dior and Chanel all sent iterations of the long skirt down the catwalk, making it one of the biggest trends predicted for next season.

As a result, searches have started increasing for the item. More specifically, people are Googling black maxi skirts has risen by 110%, while searches for maxi skirts on Pinterest has grown by 50% according to WeThrift.

Why not get ahead of the curve now? I’ve found 11 beautiful maxi skirts from Ganni, COS, Reiss, Faithfull The Brand and more that you can buy before the summer’s over.

A great transitional piece, these look great with crop tops in summer and oversized jumpers in winter. Steal Kravitz’ style with biker boots, another big trend for AW22.
