Patchwork trend: the skirt to wear this winter 2022 is a small masterpiece

Midi skirt for women

Original, not at all conventional, the skirt for winter 2022-2023 wants to be sought after, a sophisticated protagonist with its patchwork motifs

In early December our thoughts already naturally fly towards the looks to show off during the holidays. The desire to wear, especially for the last day of the year, something surprising and original makes itself felt and pushes us to hunt for the perfect look. What if we put aside sequins and glitter this year to focus on the patchwork skirt? On the Prada winter catwalk, this skirt was the eye-catcher, minimal and sophisticated at the same time, which was proposed in a new dress code for the pencil skirt, but we bet for the other models too.

Prada patchwork skirt: the minimal chic pencil skirt, how to combine it

During the presentation of the autumn/winter 2022-2023 collection, there were many details that did not escape the eye of the fashion addicts who admired the show accompanied by the notes of Depeche Mode and told us about the vibes of this winter: cold with parsimony, certainly calmer than a few years ago and with a renewed desire to go out, dance, live.

In Prada's patchwork skirt this feeling is summed up with the sophisticated, minimal and precise details that have always distinguished the maison, which introduces a new patchwork trend for the midi pencil skirt: double texture, the first dark in silk and the second in transparency , a very delicate tulle, soft and dynamic along the legs. The classic pencil skirt thus becomes more dynamic, practical, adopting a new language that seeks to be less static and rigorous.

The look that wants it combined with a pair of square-shaped and slender Mary Janes is already iconic, also perfect with a soft geometric sweater . A simple but impactful look, also because the model is embellished with flowers, decorations and sparkling details, and that's why it's a very valid alternative to a long evening dress.

The new patchwork trend: double layer of fabric or decorations

Prada has therefore somehow revisited and revised the patchwork trend that we all know and which generally mixes multiple textures. In this case, however, the trend is reduced to two, as we have also seen on other catwalks, where the long skirt is never naked but always embellished or decorated with details such as feathers, fringes , sequins or precious details that occupy a substantial part of the fabric .

A trend that also arrives in fast fashion. In the new Zara collection, the long satin midi skirt almost transforms into a ball gown, with feathers decorating the edge, the velvet mini skirt has a layer of rhinestones on the edge. The perfect one for New Year's Eve and in full trend? The model with double semi-transparent texture by Zara, black and with precious embroidered flowers and rhinestones on tulle.
