Kaia Gerber Wore 2024’s Pencil Skirt Trend in the Chicest Way


Managing a brimming calendar of press events, photo shots and work engagements, Kaia Gerber often uses her downtime to style up the casual items in her wardrobe. Frequently reaching for laid-back trainers, baggy jeans and roomy knits, yesterday she changed her tune, stepping out in New York in an off-duty ensemble that retained her relaxed aesthetic whilst tapping into one of the seasons most elegant trends.

Spring might usually be the time that we start to see miniskirts come back to the fore but celebrities have been opting for another style this season. For her day in the city, Gerber reached for a trending, calf-grazing pencil skirt to form the foundation of her look.

The pencil skirt has been fairly quiet since its heyday in the ’90s but now the silhouette is back on the radars of those most stylish this spring having featured heavily in the 2024 designer collections. Wearing hers with an open-toe mules and a boat-neck top, Kaia evaded the “stuffy” connotations that have followed the skirt around for years, instead creating a polished ensemble that felt lowkey yet elegant, and very now.

Whilst miniskirts will never be “out”, Gerber proves that the grown-up pencil skirt trend offers just as much styling potential for the warmer months, whilst providing the coverage that early-spring often calls for, making it an ideal solution for the changeable weather we’re currently experiencing.
