I have a growing affinity for all things ’90s fashion. Whether it’s sleek throwback bags, wedge sandals, minimal tank tops, or strapless dresses, my style inspiration recently has revolved around some of the signature pieces from the decade. Thanks in large part to the recent runway shows, column skirts have also landed on my list of ’90s-inspired pieces to own.
A departure from the major miniskirt trend that has swept the fashion scene, column skirts can instead be found in midi and maxi lengths. Plus, they have a straight design—hence the column moniker—making them a distinct silhouette that is set to be big on the fashion scene. The shape feels elegant and polished, while still easy to wear and dress up or down. Taking inspiration from the runways, you can simply pair one with a button-down shirt or bra top to pull off a cool look. Ahead, more on the column skirt trend I’m betting will be huge.
