Love it or hate it, 2000s fashion is back, including Juicy Couture tracksuits, trucker hats and bootcut jeans. Bella Hadid has just revived another delicate trend of the time: the long denim skirt. We are talking about fully covered jeans, below the knee. Think less of Christina Aguilera’s Dirrty era, more of Britney at the 2000 MTV VMAs.
Yesterday in New York, Hadid emerged with her new take on the iconic 2000s staple. Her skirt had some patchwork elements and a khaki studded trim. It immediately reminded me of the styles worn by Mandy Moore, Eve, and Christina Aguilera in the 2000s, although Hadid’s style made it a bit more modern. She made up for the heaviness of the skirt with an airy, tight tank top and a small shoulder bag. Her mid-calf biker boots also played on the utilitarian feel of her skirt and gave her a cool and stylish finish.
So are you ready for the return of the long denim skirt too? Or, like the trucker cap, will you keep that 2000s relic deep in your closet? Hadid, at least, offers a chic new way to wear it. This might be your new fall fashion style challenge. Below buy 6 similar styles, if you dare.
