Is The Denim Skirt Back? Re/Done & Levi’s Are Making A Case For The ‘00s Trend
My early 2000s life can pretty much be summed up by two things: Texting boys and denim skirts. Apparently, not much has changed, since I'm still blowing up bae's phone and loving on Re/Done & Levi's denim skirt that's brand spankin' new, proving once again that yes, fashion is indeed cyclical. I may hold on to that sentiment a little too hard, though, which is probably why my closet is overflowing with things I'll never wear again.
According to Who What Wear, Re/Done | Levi's have launched its first skirt, and of course, it's denim. And of course, I'm already in love. If you're not familiar with Re/Done, it's "is a movement - a movement to restore individuality to the luxury fashion space, a movement to keep heritage brands relevant, and a movement to create sustainable fashion," according to their website. Essentially, they're the coolest denim company that takes vintage Levi's and tear them apart, repurposing them into new jeans.
And boy, are they cool. As in I'm on the waitlist for several of them, and I cannot wait to get these babies in my hands. Each pair is "handpicked, hand cut, and distinctly one of a kind." Talk about bespoke! Find any fashion It girl, and she'll no doubt have a pair of Re/Done jeans in their arsenal. Now, this super cool company is tackling the skirt game.
Named "The High Rise Mini," this skirt is the perfect mix of our early 2000s love and our more stylish tendencies today. Re/Done founder Sean Barron told Whowhatwear, "...I think in the '90s girls started cutting their old Levi’s jeans into skirts."
Though some of them are on the waitlist, there are a few you can shop. Check a few out, below.

I mean, could she have been any cooler in this skirt? I don't think so.
I'm living for this.
With a white tank? Yep.
That is just so fetch!
Need I go on? So, while pleated denim skirts were like, all the rage back in the early 2000s, I've got to say I'm pretty glad we've gotten far away from them. Luckily, now, we have simpler versions that are way more flattering and pretty much go with everything. But one thing's for sure — I'll never stop texting boys.
