Last summer, every influencer on Instagram seemed to be wearing the same skirt: a silky, calf-length, leopard-print midi from the French brand Réalisation Par. Over the winter, the trend went dormant, but now that it’s spring, every third woman in Soho is wearing leopard from the waist down.
Like the chambray off-the-shoulder Zara dress that spawned its own Tumblr, or the gray fleece finance-bro vest that inspired an Instagram account, the skirt is so ubiquitous that there’s now a social media account dedicated to documenting it. But unlike those trends, this one is actually … kind of cute? The skirt is fun. It’s flattering. Like all the best “French-girl” trends, it’s very easy to wear. Usually, when you see something everywhere, you want it less, but the skirt is hard to hate.
