2 ways to style a denim skirt

Hi everyone!  As I've mentioned before, I love to find multiple ways to wear a single item of clothing.    One of my favorite items to wear all year round is a denim skirt.  You can easily wear one with sandals in the spring and boots in the fall and look perfectly appropriate for any season.  I bought this denim skirt recently that has a modern twist with some distressing, an unfinished hem and a slit in the front.  It has just the right amount of stretch, a flattering fit and I find that it runs true to size.  I wanted to share 2 different ways to style the skirt:  one dressy look and one that is very casual.

For the first look, I paired the skirt with this cold shoulder ruffle top.  It has a dressier feel with the rayon material and open shoulders.  The top comes in tons of colors, and the denim skirt would look great with any color as well as neutrals like black or white.  I added some black wedge sandals and a leopard belt, because any time I can include some leopard print in my outfit, I will!  You could also easily add more color by switching out the black wedges for a colorful sandal.

One way to easily dress up the denim skirt is with accessories.  I chose a gold layered necklace along with some gold bracelets and earrings.  I finished off the look with a black and white clutch.  The black top would also look great with a brightly colored statement necklace and earrings.  Have fun with your accessories and try out different pieces together to find a look you like best.

You can also go super casual with a denim skirt for an everyday look. Here I wore a graphic tee with the skirt and knotted it on the side.  If you aren't into graphic tees, you could also wear a striped or solid color tee for a similar casual vibe.  I wore some fun tassel earrings to add a little whimsy and color to my outfit.  I paired it with some pink sneakers for a super comfy and casual look.

These are just two ideas about how to style a denim skirt, but the possibilities are endless.  If you don't already own one, I would encourage you to find a denim skirt that you like and I can promise you that it will be well worn all year long.  In addition to the skirt I featured in the post, I found a few others I really like here, here & here.

  1. Looking great as always. I love the cold-shoulder look. I have several of them myself. Those accessories really dress up the denim and tee shirt combo.
