15 Best Denim Skirts for Women: Stylish Jean Skirts

Fashion trends have a funny way of re-emerging when we least expect them to. (Case in point: low-rise jeans, sweater vests, and—shudders—Crocs.) Most recently, this is portrayed through the denim skirt craze of 2021. Once upon a time—aka, in the early ’00s—itty-bitty mini versions of the bottom were worn on the red carpet by the likes of Lindsey Lohan and Rihanna. Before that, elongated versions were popping up on models and musicians through the ’90s. As for today, the denim skirts on the market are alternatively steeped in elegance and sophistication—thanks to the new and improved iterations that luxury designers are ushering down the runway. 

If you’re having doubts about the return of the ’00s staple, turn your attention to the Fall/Winter 2021 catwalks for some reassurance. If anyone is able to bring back the nostalgic style, it’s Celine. For its fall presentation the designer showcased a relaxed, below-the-knee interpretation.Then there was Balenciaga, which co-signed the trend with its long front-slit denim skirt (layered over slouchy jeans, nonetheless). Bevza was there, too—styling wrap skirts with black knits and tall boots in a look that every girl in New York surely swooned over all at once.
