Denim skirts are basically the definition of the 90s and early 2000s. Believe it or not, denim skirts are making a comeback in a huge way. Editors, street style bloggers and celebrities have all jumped on the trend. Yes, it’s really happening. If you’re weary of the denim skirt trend and have no idea how to style it, here are some ideas. Don’t worry, you will not look like a 90s child all over again…unless you want to.

With a sweater.

There are so many different ways you can go with the combination of a sweater and a denim skirt. If you’re wearing a long pencil skirt, try wearing an oversize sweater. You’ll add an effortlessly cool vibe to the sleek, tight fit of a pencil skirt. If you’re wearing a classic style denim skirt, opt for a light sweater with a casual fit. You can tuck it in slightly so it doesn’t make you look boxy.

Denim on denim.

Pretty much every celeb, editor and style blogger will agree that denim on denim is a trend everyone must try. At least once, anyway. Pair your denim skirt with a button down denim shirt that is a few shades lighter. It’s best to always mix dark and light denim, instead of matching the washes exactly. Tuck it in and finish off your look with a cool belt.

With a silk blouse.

Nothing says girly girl like a denim skirt and a silk blouse. You pretty much can’t go wrong with this combination. Go for a button front blouse or a simple, billowy top. Finish off this look with a pair of knee-high boots or gladiator sandals. You’ll be turning heads everywhere you go. Guaranteed!

Make it grungy.

If you want to wear a denim skirt but not get rid of your grunge pieces like plaid and leather, don’t worry! You can make a grunge look work. Instead of a dark-washed skirt, go with a lighter washed with distressed detailing like tears, whiskering and fades. Grab your favorite plaid button down, tuck it into your skirt and throw on a leather jacket. Done and done.

Layer it up.

Wearing a long coat, a top and a denim skirt together is pure magic. This is also a fantastic way to transition your skirt into colder seasons like fall. Tuck in a slouchy sweater or tee into your skirt and drape a long coat on your shoulders. With a few accessories and shoes, you’ll be looking like the next street style blogger!

There are tons and tons of ways to style a denim skirt. Keep true to yourself and wear what feels comfortable.

Don’t miss what to wear on the first day of work and shop the cutest espadrilles!
