I often get asked what articles of clothing I deem timeless. With so many fleeting trends, this is a valid question. One piece that immediately comes to mind is a functional denim skirt. The word versatile gets thrown around so loosely in the fashion blog world. Whenever I use this term, it’s safe to say the referring item is a closet staple. A denim skirt will certainly stand the test of time.
It can be challenging to find the right one. Some are too short or just too structured. I recommend trying on many different styles to test for comfort and fit. Denim skirts have progressed over time and there are so many washes, fits, and lengths to choose from. I personally love the A-line button front versions.
I found this denim skirt at Target (of course) and I was drawn to the mid length and lighter wash. I also knew I would feel more comfortable with the slightly longer length. I envisioned it with a wedge or a heel and was instantly sold. I often wear a shoe with some height. Shorter in stature, higher heels successfully elongate my overall look. If you tend to wear flats, however, I suggest a shorter skirt.
Denim skirts have the stereotype of only working throughout Spring and Summer. This is false! They do look phenomenal with lightweight blouses, tees, tanks, sandals and sneakers during the warmer months, but they can definitely transition into Fall and Winter flawlessly. Pair them with tights, scarves, sweaters, booties, over the knee boots, and jackets for a chic and sophisticated look during the colder months too.
I paired my new skirt with a pretty floral blouse. I did my predictable front tuck and added a belt for some extra detail and flair. This simple yet airy look screams Spring! The color palette is warm and inviting. I could have easily dressed it down a notch with a basic white tee for a casual every day look.
There’s a denim skirt out there to suit all shapes and tastes. From button fronts in all lengths and washes, bodycon pencil skirts, maxis, and minis, today’s denim skirts are clean, polished, and oh so chic year round!
