A love-hate relationship with skirts?
Although I think of myself as a person with a good sense of style, I sometimes fall short in some departments. One of the most difficult things for me to style and the one thing I probably wear the least are skirts. I’m not sure if my love/hate relations with skirts comes from my 10+ years in a Catholic school or because I just find that they don’t fit my body well. Whatever the case is I’m here to lend a helping hand by showing you five easy ways to style a denim skirt.
Before I show you these looks I have to be honest, I purchased this denim skirt months ago and it still has the tag on it. I will say though, after styling these looks I felt like I could definitely incorporate this skirt into more of my everyday looks.
To help me style these looks I tried to envision the skirt as a pair of denim shorts. Once I did that it was much easier to style it. For all five looks, I used the same skirt and changed up the top and shoes. I also wanted to show you how you could transition the denim skirt from spring/summer to the fall and beyond.
How to style a denim skirt
Look One: Lets jump right in! Dress it down, take your favorite t-shirt and pair it with some sneakers or sandals. This is the easiest way to wear a denim skirt. Don’t forget to have some fun and tie in the accessories!
Look Two: Let’s step it up a notch, this one might need a little more confidence to wear but it’s one of my favorites. This look is a little more of an edgy street style look. Try pairing a button up with your denim skirt. Try wearing it tucked, tied or off the shoulder to pull this look off. I also really like incorporating sneakers with this look to keep it comfy but cute.
Look Three: Bring on the boho! This fun end of the summer looks pairs a breathable sweater, with some cute sandals! You’ll notice this look it pretty monochromatic with different shades of tan/cognac but they all work great with denim. Add a fun bag for texture and you got the look.
Look Four: Classic chic! If you know me you know I absolutely love anything black and white. So of course, I wanted to show you a black and white look. This one is really super easy to put together, grab a white bodysuit or spaghetti strap and pair it with your favorite blazer. I chose some trendy slides and fun sunglass to tie the look together. So grab a blazer in your closet and throw it over a skirt to get the same feel. Try it out!
Look Five: Bring on the Pumpkin Spice Coffee! Ahhh, I love this fall look! I will admit though as much as I love seeing girls rocking this look, it’s probably the hardest one for me. I just don’t think I could feel like myself in it.
One thing I will point out with this look is to make sure you have a high waisted skirt and cropped top. Also, when you pair high boots with a skirt make sure you have some knee/skin showing between your boots and skirt. If not you’ll look frumpy. So remember, cropped shirt, high waisted skirt and some skin showing!
