Denim is a consistent wardrobe staple, but the styles that we see feature in it change with the seasons.
While denim jeans are timeless and can transition across seasons, we still see shifts in which style is on-trend. The same goes for the denim skirt. This season we’re seeing the denim skirt make a comeback to take the limelight when it comes to wearing denim for everyday wear.
Don’t be mistaken, this year’s denim skirt is not the cut-off mini variety, so for those of you thinking you’re past baring a lot of leg, this skirt is perfect for you. At Ezibuy, we’ve introduced a gorgeous new denim skirt that you’ll definitely be wanting to get your hands on. It is a versatile piece that will be a Spring wardrobe essential. It can be dressed down with a knit for those days that are still cool, or dressed up to be totally office appropriate. As we know, denim is a durable fabric that washes well and lasts for ages while still looking great. The length sits just above your knees, so is an ideal length that looks classy on all ages. With a flattering cut, it will suit many body silhouettes and accentuate all the right curves!
With a bit of stretch in the fabric, denim is super comfortable for those days that you’re rushing around the shops or dashing between work, home and kids’ activities. Because of its versatility, a denim skirt is also a great piece to transition between occasions throughout the day while continuing to look on-point for whatever casual event you need to get to.
Here are a few more tips for how you can wear the denim skirt with style:
Cool and casual
Rock the denim skirt this season with ultimate street style. Match your skirt with knee-high socks and knee-high boots for a totally on-trend look that provides the perfect solution for the transition between winter and spring.
Make it work appropriate
Despite having a more casual look, a denim skirt can certainly be made appropriate for a creative or less corporate workplace. Team with a crisp white blouse tucked in and some brown suede wedges and you’ll have the look nailed. A navy blazer will finish off your outfit perfectly, and consider including a thin belt and some nice jewellery that matches the colour of the buttons on your skirt. Focusing on elegant details like this will give your outfit a polished look and suit a more formal environment.
Don’t be afraid of denim-on-denim
Denim-on-denim can absolutely work if you get it right. A denim skirt is a great way to try this because it is a bit of softer look than jeans. If your skirt is a darker denim, go for a lighter chambray button down shirt, roll up the sleeves and tuck in the shirt tails – voila! Although, we suggest holding off on going full-hog and including a denim jacket as well until you’re fully comfortable about rocking this look.
Find a shape that suits
Straight and pencil-shaped skirts tend to make a figure curvier compared to an A-line cut (flares out slightly, as an A does) which helps to draw attention away from your belly and give you an overall leaner look. This suits many women as we get older as it helps to ensure that we don’t look frumpy instead of fab! A-lined skirts help your shoulders and chest appear smaller, so that’s also something to keep in mind when selecting your denim skirt.
It’s great to see the denim skirt make a comeback this season as we love the versatility of denim and it’s nice to have an option other than jeans. This season’s style is also one that works for a whole range of ages, depending on how you style it. So, are you ready to get your denim skirt on order? No doubt you’re already planning some outfits in your head! How will you be styling your denim skirt this season?
