The Denim Skirt
A denim skirt is an awesome style that you can wear lots of ways and incorporate into loads of cool outfits. It’s definitely on the casual side of things, being perfect for weekends or running around. However teamed with the right pieces, it certainly stands up to its “cool girl” persona and is regarded as one of the all time great bottom options.
It may come in a variation of blue, a white or a coloured denim option. They can be worn back with tees and knits, cool jackets or more sophisticated tops in luxury fabrications like silks or linen blends. Depending on the season you can wear back with boots, trainers or open toe sandals or wedges. Silhouettes vary however high waisted and mid lengths and strong this season with either clean or raw edges and unique distressed details.
Here are three relatively casual, but supremely wearable outfits that I absolutely LOVE and am wearing on rotation for weekends with the kids and to casual events.
Can you really class coloured denim as “real deal” denim? It’s camouflaged to be a tad more dressy than your traditional blue shades. There are a tonne of colours available to work with your palette of choice. The ultimate trans seasonal get up for me is to wear with a sweet top, knit, trainers and a classic black bag and sunglasses. Effortlessly cool and comfy at the same time…
The perfect base to load up with gorgeous colours or neutrals. This is a great way to wear “denim on denim” with out being to “denim on denimy”. This one fits like a glove and has a great distressed element to it.
Can we just talk about this tee for a moment? Yes, it has an inbuilt corset and is probably the most divine piece I have put on lately! Its epic stone wash finish is just too good! Making it super thin and light weight so it doesn’t load up around the middle whilst achieving this on trend “tied-up waist” look.
Another great thing to do at the moment is throw a trench on top of everything, it adds another layer, some dimension and a bit of interest to your look. Slouch it off your shoulders a bit, just for fun.
A blue denim skirt is probably one of the most iconic denim styles next to your jean. It withstands the test of time and season after season it pops back into our lives in new and exciting cuts, colours and detailing.
I’ve paired this perfect high waisted baby with an amazing oversized light jacket (how awesome is it BTW!) black accessories and statement boots. For me a white tee wins EVERYTIME with a denim skirt.
So these are my top three denim skirt faves for the season! Whether blue, white or coloured, it’s a cracking wardrobe staple with endless styling options. For me, a smart casual approach works best when it comes to this little beauty. What style is your favourite? It’s so hard to choose, I love them all! Okay, okay, I’m feeling the coloured option right now, I love this taupy tone. Gets me every time….
