Make way for the triumphant return of a classic wardrobe staple. Fall fashion is about embracing polished and ladylike style, with skirts at the crux. From Saint Laurent’s sharp and fiery plaid prints to Brandon Maxwell’s beautifully languid silk maxis, designers are turning the spotlight back onto skirts this season. If you’ve been missing the elegance and grace that skirts bring to an outfit, it’s time to rejoice. And don’t worry, the options aren’t limited to just one style; from denim midis to prairie skirts, there’s something for everyone. The comeback is real.
The Denim Midi
Behold the ultimate denim midi, your polished go-to for those days when baggy jeans aren’t the vibe. It’s got all the bells and whistles — button closure, pockets, and some faded charm that looks as great with a sweater and tall boots as it does with sneakers and a hoodie.
The Handkerchief Hem
Marni’s asymmetric midi skirt brings the Y2K nostalgia while reminding you that fashion is an art form. With its high-low hem and patterns that may or may not induce dizziness, it’s the kind of skirt that says, “I’m here to turn heads, and maybe even make you question your sense of balance.”
The Prairie Skirt
Embrace your inner ’70s flower child with this sleek approach to the prairie skirt trend. Made from crisp organic cotton, it’s got all the tiered, A-line action you love, with a streamlined feel that doesn’t teeter too far into Laura Ingles Wilder territory (except how idyllic for frolicking through imaginary fields of wildflowers?).
The Menswear Mini
From heavyweight tweeds to iconic checks and pinstripes, materials traditionally reserved for menswear are it when it comes to fall skirts, especially in mini form (and even better with a matching blazer or vest). With the hint of ’90s nostalgia, this shortie is a versatile option worth adding to cart.
The Slouchy Maxi
The pencil skirt may have drab nine-to-five connotations, but as this puddling pinstripe number proves, it’s been updated for peak chic style. Wear yours with everything from a equally slouchy crewneck sweater to a trim blazer and patent boots.
The Pleated Skirt
Miu Miu’s pleated micro-mini walked so midi and maxis could run this fall, and this skirt in rich navy proves how the traditionally preppy vibe can skew edgy and fresh. With its asymmetrical high-low hem and hardware-adorned belt, it’s sleek and unexpected — a failsafe piece for autumnal day-to-night style.
The Plaid Skirt
Take a page from Saint Lauren’t playbook with this fiery red plaid skirt. It’s giving private school uniform in a delightfully refined way. Emulate runway styling by teaming yours with a boxy blazer, patent pumps, and high-shine silver jewels.
The Sheer Midi
Form-fitting, multicolored, and asymmetrical, this sheer skirt is a trifecta of intrigue. Bonus: It’s made from dead stock fabric, so you can tell people you’re into sustainability after you’ve captured their attention.
The Relaxed A-Line
Full skirts are back in a big way, and this smocked waistband silhouette is all about maximum comfort and style. It’s the ultimate A-line for A-plus style, with pockets that can hold everything from your secrets to your snacks.
The Sweeping Slip
Drama seekers, this one’s for you. From its floor-pooling length to its rich plum hue, this skirt demands attention. Channel Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy by styling it with a cashmere crewneck, minimalist accessories, and timeless jewelry.
