This season’s biggest trend is tiny. Meet the micro-mini skirt, The style re-emerged and began picking up steam on the runways earlier this year, when MiuMiu and Saint Laurent showed teeny skirts in embellished jewels and tweeds for fall 2021.
Looks from MiuMiu’s spring 2022 runway show, which sent the Internet ablaze with theories of the return of Y2K fashion.
Typically less agenda-setting than it’s big sister label Prada, @MiuMiu made its boldest statement in a while during their Spring 2022 presentation in Paris today: the return of the low-rise mini skirt. Yes, the 2000s variety last seen on the likes of Christina Aguilera, Fergie, Paris Hilton, and Nicole Richie. Even Beyoncé got in on the trend.
We’re talking a maximum length of 8” here… a skirt so tiny it would dwarf a Fendi B belt and make you shudder as your thighs and ass cheeks hit the cold subway seats.
MiuMiu’s last spring collection saw a finale of jeweled minis styled with retro polo knits neatly tucked in, but this season, Miuccia hacked off several more inches, leaving raw edges and baring more skin by pairing them with cropped cable knits and button-down shirts.
For those who aren’t quite ready to bare their navel, underboob, and hip bones, the low-rise proportion also came in bermudas, midi skirts, and trousers. Trend on the runway .
