How I Rocked the Y2K Trend With A Denim Maxi Skirt

Since the resurgence of the Y2K era in 2020, many trends have dominated our social media feeds and favorite shopping destinations. Although popular favorites like low-rise pants, tennis skirts, and bra tops command the fashion industry (including some of it’s biggest runways like Tom Ford and Diesel), there’s one sartorial star who’s managed to make the biggest comeback — the denim maxi skirt. While the idea of a denim skirt seems a bit played out, the coveted piece comes in many fresh, elevated styles that can quickly become a wardrobe staple. The options are endless, from light wash with high slits to cargos with frayed hems. If this style also piques your interest, keep scrolling for inspiration on championing the trend this spring/summer.

As pictured, I wore a sheer, mesh multicolor printed top paired with a denim maxi skirt and white lace-up sandals. To channel the full essence of Y2K nostalgia, I threw on a yellow ruched shoulder bag and clear silver shades.

While the denim skirt has become the new "it thing" to wear, it's a classic piece that'll be able to stand the test of time post-hype. It's the perfect transitional piece that'll take you through almost any season. Dress it down with your favorite sneakers and a cropped vintage jersey for a casual lunch, or dress it up with a sleek blouse and lace-up heels for a chic night out, as seen here. Initially, this denim maxi, a vintage pair of Levi's jeans, was reworked into a floor-length skirt with a leg-bearing slit that adds an effortless vibe to any outfit. This look is the epitome of style from the early aughts, from the faded blue, green, and red in the mesh top to the star detail that cascades the sunglasses brim.
