Kendall Jenner Is Ushering In Y2K's Most Controversial Piece: The Über Short Mini Skirt

ELLE logo ELLE 3 days ago Ava Gilchrist

There's no denying Kendall Jenner is the reigning queen of SoCal style.

Stepping out in the depths of Los Angeles winter to support her long-time pal Fai Khadra's eyewear collaboration with Oliver Peoples, Jenner rocked the most daunting piece of Y2K fashion to date: the low-slung, über-short mini skirt. (Kendall really said 'nauh' to LA winter, huh.)

Obviously, she looked every bit the off-duty model that she is. Kendall paired the teeny tiny mini skirt with matching patent knee-high stiletto boots, merging 90s fashion with 2010 realness in the best possible way.

However, most of us are not off-duty models, and the resurgence of mini skirts—seen on the catwalks of Balmain, Chanel, Christian Dior and Miu Miu in the Spring/Summer 2022 collections—might send a flicker of fear to your heart. That's okay. We're all going to get through this mini skirt resurgence together.

Kendall met up with BFF Hailey Bieber at the event, who was a little more rugged up for the occasion in a Matrix-esque bustier, pants and trench. We know home girl loves a coat.

When we weren't lusting over Jenner's mini, we had our eyes on her Bec + Bridge vest. Featuring the hottest material of the season—boucle, in case you were wondering—the Jeal Knit is super cropped (perfect for layering) and boasts an oversized pocket and 70s camp collar. We die.

While the style won't be available until April, we've already got our names on the waiting list and our credit cards ready—we highly recommend you do the same because this style will be sure to sell out quick.

As for accessories, Jenner kept it super simple with a black shoulder bag and minimal jewellery. The cherry on top of the cake was her avant-garde french tip manicure.

Given the resurgence of Y2K fashion, we can't help but wonder if it's perhaps time to pull out our own thigh-skimming mini skirts and platform boots. The pleated mini is a staple of the early 2000s, and we think they'll pair perfectly with the chic-AF Versace platforms we've been eyeing off all season.

While there's no question that Jenner is the undeniable queen of mighty mini skirts, this ultra modern look is top of our winter moodboard, proving that this aesthetic is the ultimate power combo.
