And while the micro mini skirt trend may have been quite the hit in the 90s, Diesel’s over-the-top take on the look has left social media users questioning how far the fashion world is willing to go in order to gain attention. 

Fashion guru and TikToker Adrienne Reau offered up an honest review of the leather skirt, noting that it offers little to no coverage, no matter how you wear it.

In a viral video, the fashion guru showed herself unboxing the skirt that leaves little to the imagination and even danced around in it, claiming she was ‘obsessed’, before quickly changing her tune.

In a follow-up video, Adrienne slammed the skirt’s packaging for its ‘sloppy’ design and explained she didn’t appreciate the Velcro closure. 

‘Maybe a few snap buttons would have been more high quality,’ she said.

She then explained the skirt was uncomfortable and impractical, and said she couldn’t even wear it out, admitting that the ’90s little number would end up rotting in her closet. 

‘I had to go home after about 20 minutes and get changed. My cheeks were just out and about,’ she added.

Adrienne then explained the micro mini skirt wasn’t only uncomfortable but also caused constant readjustments while out.

‘It also gaps on the body weird, and you just can’t sit down in it or else it will just go straight up,’ the fashion guru said.

Although she originally said she was ‘obsessed’ with the micro mini skirt, she then switched her side and noted she was left disappointed with the luxury brand’s take on the short skirt.

‘Is this a joke?? I don’t understand.. this is an actual product,’ wrote another user. 

‘This is literally like those safety belts warehouse workers have to wear,’ said one user.
