Yeah, a denim skirt is a closet staple. But staples usually feel so… ok, I’ll say it, basic, sometimes. It’s not that I don’t see the value in classic pieces — these days, that’s basically all I’m investing in. It’s just that when the classic is the same old one you wore as a child, it can be tough to figure out how to wear a denim skirt in a way that feels fresh and age-appropriate. But I’m actually coming around to denim skirts. They’re everywhere now that it’s getting warm, and they’re so easy to pull off. In fact, the easiest way to wear a denim skirt in summer it to treat it like a pair of jeans. It pretty much goes with everything.
A denim skirt is a slightly more dressy version of denim cutoffs. It’s perfect if you want to look like you tried a little harder, but don’t want anything too fancy or fussy. It’s for those times when a sundress feels too much for the occasion or your mood, but cutoffs feel a little too casual. My favorite ways to wear a denim skirt are to pair it with a t-shirt and sneakers or flip-flops for running errands, camp pick-up, the farmer’s market. For a bbq or casual date night, I’ll wear a denim skirt with a cute top and fun sandals. In an A-list midi style and paired with heels, a denim skirt can even work for the office, perfect for a casual Friday vibe.
