The black pencil skirts are an unusual trend that began in the US in the mid-1990s, but has been increasingly popular in the UK since, with many dressing up as maids in the past few years.
In 2018, British comedian James May and model Lianne Laverne attended a black-themed fashion show in London, dressed as maidens, wearing a black dress.
“It’s the first time I’ve been on a black trend,” Mr May told The Sun.
Mr May has been photographed in a black skirt and blouse, wearing his own maid outfit. “
I think it’s great for women to go down a more feminine path, especially when it comes to dressing up.”

“We don’t think it goes far enough,” he added.
But the trend is not restricted to the UK. “
There’s no reason why women should dress up in maid outfits.”

Last year, US actress and model Ashley Graham also started dressing as maidesses in public, adding a pink skirt and pink blouse to her black outfit.
In an Instagram post, she wrote: “My favourite thing about black is the way it is fun.
Black is a colour you love to dress up for.”
The trend is currently popular in Australia, where a group of black-clad women dressed up as white maids at a fashion show last year.
“Black is a color you love the fun with, so it’s no surprise that black is a trend,” a spokeswoman for Black Girls Dresses told The Daily Telegraph.
“Every woman has her own taste in colour and we’re always open to experimenting and exploring.”
While the trend in the United States has attracted more attention recently, it has not yet become a trend in Australia.
“Australia has a long history of black fashion and there are a lot of amazing black designers,” Black Girls Fashion told The Australian.
“But for now, the trend for black is still pretty limited and it’s still something we’re not going to see much of.”
