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.
