The “Basic” Skirt Trend That Is Somehow Both Timeless and Trendy

Do a deep dive into the spring and summer 2021 runways and you’ll find more new trends than you know what to do with. We reported on the heavy hitters (see here) late last year, but what we shared with you was barely scratching the surface of all the sartorial goodness you have yet to discover. Oddly enough, and for lack of a better word, there was an overwhelming amount of noteworthy new bottoms including pants, skirts, and the like that will be trending come spring. One, in particular, we want to focus on today is a skirt trend that pretty much everyone can agree upon—wrap skirts. 

Wrap skirts are not a new skirt silhouette by any means, but thanks to Miu Miu, Peter Do, and more, we are seeing them in a whole new light. While the style might feel fresher now than season’s past, that doesn’t discredit the fact that at the end of the day, this skirt trend is timeless. Finding an item that is both timeless and trendy all at once is like striking fashion gold. The duo allows you to participate in the best of what the season has to offer without feeling like your money is going toward a potentially fleeting trend. Buying a wrap skirt this season will prove to be both an investment and the easiest way to update your wardrobe to reflect the most popular runway trends. You’re welcome.
