2022-2023 in the autumn and winter collections, which were presented in the fashion capitals of New York, London, Milan and Paris, skirts were given a lot of attention.
Below are 8 fall skirt trends that J.Fox-Suliaman says are worth paying attention to this season.
1. Length skirt
Last autumn and spring short skirts are stronger, this season long skirts will dominate. We saw wide skirts in all the collections. But it wasn’t just the length that made them remarkable – the emphasis on detail made this skirt trend stand out. We saw everything from Tod’s long leather skirt to Christian Siriano’s velvet at the collection launch.
The luxurious fabrics weren’t the main focus – the fit was what mattered. Minimal, fishtail-like long skirt seen in Ludovic de Saint Sernin’s collection and presented by Y/Project with a dropped waist and integrated belt. It is safe to say that it is long Skirts are back and better than ever.
2. Knee length skirt
I know that for many people, knee skirts can bring back very different memories, like a time when you were a teenager when you had to wear knee skirts. nonetheless, in 2022-2023 versions seen in the autumn and winter collections make a convincing case for the return of this silhouette.
Designers have taken this “conservative” style and made it a little risque. At Miu Miu, models walked the catwalk in low-cut pleated skirts and see-through panties, while Stella McCartney created a saffron satin skirt with a matching bra.
In addition to tailoring, the main focus was on the style that animates the dress. Emilia Wickstead paired a simple crop top with a perfectly tailored knee-length skirt. Maximilian, on the other hand, paired a chocolate suede skirt with over-the-knee boots, elbow-length gloves and a bra.
Those who said knee covers could not look cool never saw these collections coming, and the trend will only become more important from now on.
3. Loose skirts
Although these skirts were common in the 19th century, this style became more popular during times of austerity (such as the Civil War, the Great Depression, and the 1950s). It is logical that even now the designers have paid attention to such a silhouette, knowing what is happening in the world. nonetheless, these skirts are more modern compared to what they used to be.
Fashion house Bottega Veneta used leather fringes under the skirt to create the straight silhouette, designers Prada used pleats to achieve a similar effect. And Proenza Schouler, by contrast, used color blocking and bias cuts to create the illusion of volume.
While this trend may be ‘old’, each new iteration proves that it will never get boring (if done right).
4. Denim skirt
I know that fall is the season of jeans and many people like to wear them at this time of the year. Therefore, the idea of exchanging comfortable jeans for a skirt can not be justified. Fortunately, one trend managed to fill this gap – denim skirt.
This style has received a lot of attention from fashion fans, and you will understand why after seeing the 2022-2023 collection. autumn and winter collection. From short skirts at Versace to mid-lengths at Ami, there’s no shortage of ways to style this trend.
But what makes this style stand out are the details. For example, we saw a long faded denim skirt with a train from the Vaquera collection. This trend can dispel any previous doubts about jeans or skirts in general.
5. Leather skirt
It is no secret that this season it is necessary to choose not only denim, but also leather. It is surprising how this trend stays in the top beyond the first season. This is partly due to the creative way leather skirts are made.
This season we saw designers dig into the details and add little touches that take this already magical piece to a new heavenly place. Fendi embellished a mid-calf navy leather skirt with chiffon, while Chloé embellished the waist in a red skirt with rhinestones.
Buttons adorn the bottom of a camel leather skirt at Saks Potts, while thin laces hold together a cropped leather skirt at Nancy Dojaka. Every detail looked like a star in the universe – brilliantly bright and too stunning not to look at.
6. Knit skirt
Knitted clothes are not new, but designers manage to make it look like them every fall. This is definitely the case with the trend of knitted skirts we saw in 2022-2023. in autumn and winter collections.
In the Jil Sander collection, we saw gray wool skirts with silhouettes reminiscent of mermaids. Models walked the runway at Gabriela Hearst in flared salmon skirts that reached the ankles. And in the Ulla Johnson collection, you could find skirts with bright seams and deep slits.
Regina Pyo pairs an ultra-chic long pale yellow skirt with a matching cardigan. Each option seemed to reflect how our approach to clothing has changed over the past few years. We all want to feel comfortable, but elegant, and this trendy skirt delivers just that.
7. Short party skirt
Although longer skirts are popular this season, short skirts have not gone either. Instead, they were relegated to a more specific category, set party.
Unlike previous versions of this trend, this year’s focus is on shine. We saw short skirt adorned with uniquely shaped No.21 sequins, while vibrant saffron sequins cover LaQuan Smith’s skirt.
Brief Versace the skirt was decorated with a collar made of pink crystals, and the fashion house “Coperni” created an artificial cut effect using mirrors. The result is a skirt that can make anyone want to dance.
8. Skirt over pants
Even though I’m a die-hard fan of skirts and I believe they beat pants, I can understand if you’re still on the fence about choosing this item. So don’t do it. Put both instead. The idea seems old, but if the 2022-2023 fall and winter collections have taught us something, it’s just that if you want the skirt trend at work, the most important thing is to know how to wear it stylishly.
A little skirt started from the fashion house Jacquemus and Rokh were paired with narrow pants. DSquared2 and Maryam Nassir Zadeh are short Skirts were worn over black pants and paired with even more layers to create visual intrigue.
These examples show that you don’t have to choose between your favorite clothes. If you are brave enough, you can wear both.
