The fashion world’s obsession with denim is unwavering, but there’s been a swift return of long denim skirts, with midi and maxi styles seen all over the SS23 runways and our Instagram feeds.
Altuzarra, Givenchy and Masha Popova had denim maxi skirts in their new season collections, and with the arrival of spring, they’re now absolutely everywhere.
First introduced in the ‘70s as an alternative to jeans, the denim skirt has been an on-off staple ever since. Most recently, more polished styles in longer lengths with front slit details are the look du jour.

Like your favourite pair of jeans, they’re so versatile. Go for true noughties nostalgia and wear a long denim skirt with ballet flats, a classic tee, and a leather jacket or for timeless styling add a crisp white shirt and leather boots or slingback heels.
If you really want to emulate the street style set, add a twist to the Canadian tux and wear your denim skirt with a matching denim jacket.
