When I was about seven, my mum used to wear this denim maxi skirt that I hated. I had many strong opinions on fashion — even back then.

It was loose and sat on her hips. It didn’t have any shape. I thought it was an “old person” piece.

But I’m ready to admit that I was wrong.

Maybe it was because she was my mum — and we don’t think our parents are cool until we’re actually adults ourselves — or because in today’s Y2K re-emergence I’m seeing styles I thought I hated in a new and refreshing light. But I can’t deny that I’m becoming a huge fan of a denim maxi skirt.

Worn and styled properly, they look effortlessly cool and even a little edgy.

Camila Mendes recently styled hers with a black crop, black boots, a cropped fur coat and sleek black sunnies — which hit the sweet spot between luxe and casual.

While Mendes opted for a more refined look, ‘it’ gal Emma Chamberlain went for a more baggy casual style.

Chamberlain paired her faded denim maxi with an oversized college jumper layered over a button-up white shirt, her look was giving school-core in that chill-but-fashionable way she pulls off consistently.
