21 Pleated Mini Skirts I Want to Shop Thanks to the Viral Miu Miu One

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve likely seen the Miu Miu skirt I’m talking about at least once. Although, if you’re a person who considers themselves to be very online (like myself), you’ve mentally cataloged every last cameo this skirt has made—and even followed the account dedicated to chronicling its rise @miumiuset. Since the moment the skirts glided down Miu Miu’s spring/summer runway in Paris last October, they’ve appeared on celebs like Zendaya, Nicole Kidman, and Hailey Bieber, popped up on a number of magazine covers, and of course, littered the street style scene (and Instagram) during fashion week.

The micro mini skirt is marking its grand return this season, and Miu Miu take might be the most noteworthy yet. They paired the low-rise pleated miniskirts with preppy staples like loafers and cable knit but with a decidedly risqué spin. If you went to high school or middle school in the early aughts, then the teenier-than-thou silhouettes might bring back some strong emotions. While I was initially shocked at their return, I’ve since come around to the idea after seeing how fashion people are styling them.

Ahead, shop the pleated mini skirts I’m eyeing now that the viral Miu Miu lives rent-free in my head.

One of the original runway looks from the spring/summer 2022 collection. Some of the key details include the cutoff raw hem and ultra low rise fit.

The brand introduced several iterations on its now-iconic mini skirt, but the khaki-hued and belted version has proven to be the most influential.

The beige color really makes it.

This styling with a long trench feels so wearable.

Show off the waistband of your lingerie if you really want to re-create the runway look.

Mini, but not too mini.

This has the underlayer detail and everything.

This one will have you channeling Olivia Rodrigo and Kourtney Kardashian.

Into these pinstripes.

Simple and wallet-friendly.

Don’t sleep on the leather verisons.

This hits on the trend without feeling overly costume-y.

Love this with the cable-knit sweater.

Peep that double-layer detail.

A bit of plaid ups the academic vibe.

This would look so good with a structured blazer.

Back-to-school but make it spring.

Miu Miu may have popularized the style, but brands like Dion Lee have been putting their own spin on pleated minis for a minute now.

This whole outfit, please and thank you.

Obsessed with the varsity jacket styling.

It’s all in the name.
