Yes, the denim skirt is back but, no, it's not the same tired, frayed one from middle school days. With the '70s movement in full force, the button-front style has taken the skirt world by storm.

It started when designer Clare Waight Keller of Chloé doubled up on denim on the spring/summer 2015 runway and paired a slouchy denim sweatshirt with a long buttoned denim maxi. Then, Alexa Chung debuted her denim design range for AG Jeans, which included a denim skirt that had all the makings of the perfect little mini—sculpted seam lines, exposed buttons, and a slightly flared silhouette. And more recently, fashion darling Diane Kruger perfected her off-duty style with a midi-length button-front denim skirt that she paired with a burgundy knit, nude frames, a python Jason Wu cross-body, and tan boots.

The takeaway here: Button-front skirts are having a major moment. To that end, we scoured the market and unearthed ones in varied washes (light to dark), silhouettes (flared and straight), and lengths (mini to maxi). Shop our 10 best, below:
