Mini skirts might have had a moment in the spotlight last year – the much memed Miu Miu style even garnered its own Instagram account – but floor-length hems are making their mark on our wardrobes in 2023.

If you’re tuned in to the whispers of the ’90s style resurgence, it’s no surprise to see denim silhouettes are fervent favourites at the moment. But don’t sleep on silk and tailored pieces that walk the ever-coveted line of desk-to-dinner dressing. Some are made to be worn with knee-high boots now and slender sandals come summer. Others simply need a pair of trending sneakers to see you through the seasons.

A few of Broadsheet’s favourite denim brands are taking on the trending style. There’s the Recut from Neuw in a timeless dark rinse, Nobody’s Avery silhouette with vintage fading and Henne’s Terzo design, which comes in three washes. The Rennie style from Camilla and Marc sits low on the waist and falls to a generous hem. Meanwhile, Melbourne made-to-order brand Corepret crafts this panelled design from discarded jeans.

Cut on the bias, Silk Laundry’s signature long style arrives in a cedar green update this season, as well as a playful mushroom-printed iteration. Speaking of prints, Steele brings an artful design to the mix, while Zimmermann, Lee Mathews and Lover do florals for spring with trademark appeal. Sir’s Selita maxi is a rich option in chocolate brown. Friends with Frank adds a midas touch with the Willa skirt in a golden new-season hue. And Solana follows up the warm colour story with this tobacco tie-up silhouette (which also comes in black). Melbourne brand Tendresse Studio keeps things flowing with its Seine style in classic black and sheer chiffon.

Gathered skirts are gaining traction this season. You can choose to go full ball gown and finish your look with a pair of trending ballet flats or lean into boho vibes with tiered and ruffled hems. Sir’s voluminous Valerio silhouette and the Amani style from Auguste the Label are covered in seasonal blooms. Lee Mathews brings a distinct utility-chic vibe to the pleated-waist Rosa maxi and Friend of Audrey keeps thing more pared-back with the Michele style in white and baby pink. Silk Laundry leans into ‘80s energy with this drop-waist cotton and silk style, which comes in pink and black.

Change up your wide-leg pants for a well-cut skirt suit. Anna Quan’s Farrah style comes in ice blue or black with contrasting buttons. Sir taps into the moment for pink with the Giacomo silhouette. Friends with Frank, Venroy and Bassike offer outfit building shades of beige. And Incu, Camilla and Marc and Matteau keep things classic in black.

Ribbed styles aren’t just for winter: try Sir’s fitted Impasto on for size, or seek out the comfort of this cotton and cashmere design from Lee Mathews. Friends with Frank and Silk Laundry return to this list with their respective wrapped and striped takes. Anna Quan also gets another look in with the Mathilde skirt in tiramisu stripes and solid cream colourway. Elka Collective adds subtle shimmer to the mix with this lurex-woven design. Viktoria & Woods issues a tube silhouette in an organic cotton fabrication – style the dusty blue colourway with coordinating tones. And Venroy’s crochet knit and draped jersey styles feel decidedly summery.
