The mini skirt suit is yet another ’80s trend that stepped into 2019 and is now rapidly becoming one of the hottest fashion trends. There’s been a lot of ’80s favourites making their way into this millennium. We have seen styles with the ’80s overriding sexual appeal like the tight latex pants, classic wardrobe staples like bodysuits and boho escapist styles like the fanny pack. Basically, we’ve seen virtually every style from the ’80s make a comeback in recent years and thanks to this revival we are being re-introduced to the mini skirt suit.
If you think the skirt suit made its come back in 2018 you’d be mistaken. It’s been a slow process for this ’80s baby and it all started in 2016 when Queen B happened to step out in the blazer-mini skirt combination by the Parisian label, Pallas. This became one of the most significant stamps of approval the trend needed but it didn’t quite catch on until the middle of 2018 when all of a sudden many fashion influencers began wearing skirt suit combos.
New rave, Cardi B was also among a few celebrities to put yet another stamp of approval on the trend as it appeared in her first ever fashion collection in collaboration with American “fast fashion” (think fast food) brand, Fashionnova.
Fast forward to 2019 and it’s quickly catching on; even Queen Beyonce Knowles couldn’t resist the old fave as she stepped out in a set that was styled by Serina Akers and designed by emerging designer Sergio Hudson.
But Bey isn’t the only one loving this trend. Before she stepped out in the look last week, many of our favourite style stars have been rocking the look while a few others were spotted after Bey did.

The mini skirt suit is quite an interesting take – it offers elegance and at the same time says “party time” without trying too hard. Now is the best time to hop on it!
