4 Skirt Trends We're Desperate to Wear Now That Spring Is Finally Here

Spring has finally arrived this week, and boy, we couldn't be happier. We can finally pack away our Michelin Man puffer coats, swap our chunky boots for Velcro-strap sandals and reacquaint ourselves with the magical, eye bag–covering joy of big sunglasses. This year, we have also found ourselves falling back in love with skirts, a wardrobe category that has played second fiddle to the dress in recent years.

Designers and high-street brands alike have turned their attention to the humble skirt in all its facets for spring 2022, which has manifested in a wide range of styles and silhouettes coming to the fore. Column skirts, slips, circle skirts, midis, minis, leather, denim… You name it; a brand will have created it. Well, we decided to give you a bit of a rundown of the four key skirt trends that we are personally backing for 2022. Plus, we shopped them out to give you a head start.

1. The Column Skirt

Bring some '90s spirit into your spring wardrobe with a column skirt. Just complete the full throwback look with a colour-match shirt.

2. The Mini




While it never technically went away, the miniskirt seems to be having a particular moment in the spotlight this season. Our favourite styles come A-line in a thick wool or bouclé fabric.

3. The '90s Slip

The slip is undoubtedly the perfect day-to-night skirt trend and, luckily, is available in a range of fabrics and shades the right now. We love Victoria Beckham's floor-skimming number, which has a fun noughties twist.

4. The Denim Skirt




A denim skirt is just what we want to wear in spring when we're not quite psychologically ready for a mini. Whether you go for bleached denim, true blue or cream, this is sure to be a versatile piece for many seasons to come.
