I’m just going to say it: Skirts don’t get enough attention. Trousers and jeans are talked about constantly, as are dresses and even shorts. But skirts? No. They’re left to reside at the bottom of the sartorial food chain, worn frequently but never spotlighted.
But as someone who goes to no wardrobe item more than her skirts—long ones, short ones, denim ones, and leather ones—I feel it’s imperative that we discuss the oft-unmentioned silhouette and start giving it the kind of recognition it deserves. To begin, let’s look at the six skirt trends that will shape our wardrobes in 2022, straight off the S/S 22 runways. From micro minis at Prada and Miu Miu to see-through styles at Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Fendi, this year’s skirt selection is worthy of a top spot on the fashion pyramid. And once you’ve shopped them all, I have a good feeling that you’ll agree.
