If someone told me a few years ago that we’d be walking around in denim skirts today, I would laugh. So hard. How on earth could these things that I once tossed out the door ever be stylish again? But, things have changed, and with fashion being no stranger to the rise of old trends, I wasn’t too surprised that denim skirts have burst onto the scene again. This time, all grown up!
This denim skirt is from a local boutique in my area and it was all that I was looking for and more. The rips, the comfortable fit, and the wash made it all modern and perfect. Denim skirts are a making a major comeback, and since they are so versatile and can be styled in so many ways, I’m definitely considering it a fun piece to have in your closet. Think of it as a perfect alternative to your favourite jeans.
For some of you, it may be a bit tricky to style, so my advice is to really keep it simple, and let the skirt steal the spotlight. I’m yet to try the denim on denim trend using a denim skirt, so I’m really looking forward to that.
I paired the skirt with a white sheer button down shirt for a minimalistic casual look that is effortless yet chic. I finished it off with a pair of comfy nude pumps, and added a necklace and bracelet that incorporated the shade of the denim in their designs.
What are your thoughts on denim skirts making their way back on the fashion scene? Yay or nay?
