Denim skirts are one way to wear a casual outfit without wearing jeans, which is especially fab when you’re a skirt gal. The four combinations here piqued my interest because they’re different and quite interesting, yet wearable and within our reach.
With a ‘70s Touch
The A-line denim midi is as ‘70s as it gets. It’s an excellent skirt shape on a curvy hourglass or pear shaped body type. For a retro flavour, combine it with a cropped pullover or fitted top. Tuck the top in if you’re long or regular waisted, and wear it out when you’re short waisted. Add chunky platforms, wedge espadrilles, or fitted knee-high heeled boots. You can achieve a similar vibe with denim culottes.
Denim on Denim & Pumps
This combination looks a little dressier because of the choice of footwear and bag. I really like the chic effect of this outfit. The length and fit of the skirt is elegant. The relaxed vibe of the shirt creates a fab juxtaposition with the severity of the pumps and the strictness of the angular clutch. The visual effect is very modern to my eye.
Tweed Jacket, Sneakers & Clutch
Try combining a denim skirt with a dressy jacket, layering tee and sneakers. Finish off the look with a graphic bag like a clutch. A mini crossbody bag is another fun option. The sporty luxe outfit is practical, spunky, creative and unique. I like the juxtaposition of the pretty and sporty.
Chunky Knit & Heeled High-Shaft Booties
This combination is the easiest to pull together and wear. Combine a short denim skirt with a chunky pullover that’s short or semi-tuck the front to create a shorter length. Add higher shaft booties or mid-calf boots, a scarf and bag, and you’re good to go. Tonal tights are a good addition in cold weather, or stick with sheer hose in nude.
Here’s a collection of denim skirts just in case you were looking for one. A fun new denim skirt has been on my radar for a while just because it’s a casual alternative to jeans. Perhaps this will be the year I add one to my wardrobe.
