Styling Your Skirt – We all love denim. It’s comfortable, stylish and comes in many shades and styles. It’s also relatively affordable. Denim skirts are very popular right now, as they provide women with a fun look that can be sexy, casual, and even dressed up a little bit. While you probably wouldn’t wear a denim skirt to a wedding, you can still pull off some chic looks.

A denim skirt might be the most versatile piece to have in your closet. They are perfect for casually hanging out with friends or heading out for a night on the town, and nowadays, you can get away with wearing them to the office. They work whether you have a graphic tee on top or a blazer. You can wear one in winter and summer, and with almost any footwear, from sandals to boots.

All of this and denim is built to last. If you take care of it, your denim skirt should last you for years to come, and it requires nothing special to care for it. You don’t even have to steam or iron it. All you have to do is wash it inside out in cold water. That’s it! Here are some tips for dressing up and dressing down your denim skirt.

With a White Tee Shirt

The crazy thing about this is you could get away with it anywhere you go. It’s a casual look, but if you slap on a pair of heels, it becomes much fancier, believe it or not. It does not have to be as simple as an untucked shirt. You can tie in the front to show off your midriff and add a little sexy appeal that’ll help you stand out in a crowd. When the weather turns cold, try knee-high boots, and a coat overtop the tee shirt. Try dark heels, a fancy sun hat, and some shades in the summer. You will look ready for anything.

With a Trench Coat

While trench coats have been a wardrobe staple for years, they tended to be only for the office for women. That’s changed in the past few decades, and a trench coat should be an important part of your wardrobe. It makes your denim skirt more versatile. If you have a mini skirt, then throw on a trench to cover up. The trench coat is the perfect warm-but-not-too-warm accessory if it’s cool out. Finish the look off with some sandals or canvas shoes, and you will have the ultimate casual look.

With a Tank Top

When it’s hot, there’s nothing better than wearing a skirt with a tank top. It’s comfortable and cool and has boatloads of sex appeal to boot. When you have a tank top, you can wear a simple pair of sneakers if you’re just going to be out shopping and walking around. However, a pair of heels will up the fancy factor and get you ready for a night at the clubs. The more fitted the tank and strappier the heels, the better. If you want a real casual look and the weather is getting cooler, tie a plaid shirt around your waist for easy access when you need it.

With a Blazer

As mentioned earlier, a denim skirt is versatile in that you can dress them down or up. They are perfect for a day spent shopping and having lunch with friends, and also you can wear them to the office or a formal event. The perfect option for dressing up your denim skirt is with a blazer. If you want to make a statement, try a boldly colored blazer on top of a neutral-colored shirt. Conversely, you can do the opposite with a bright-colored blazer and a white or neutral top. To dress your outfit up even further, try flats or pumps.

With a Cropped Sweater

Blue jean skirts can still look sexy, even if the weather takes a turn for the worse. You can pair your skirt with a sweater to keep warm, but try a cropped one for that little extra sizzle. It’s a very casual and relaxed look, but it will definitely turn heads. Since it’s for the colder weather, it works best with a midi or maxi skirt, but you can do it with a mini if you also add leggings or tights under the skirt. Ankle boots would go very nicely with this look.

With a Button-Down Top

A button-down top will place you firmly in the middle of the casual and formal spectrum. You can go plaid, printed, or plain. Any will work. Tuck your top in and pair it with some comfy sneakers for a more casual look. Dress it up with boots or heels. The type of top will also determine how dressy it is. A comfortable plaid lumberjack shirt is the ultimate in casual, whereas a nice button-down blouse is fancier.

With a Denim Jacket

Denim is in right now, so why not double down on the style choice. Yes, you can pair your denim skirt with a denim jacket, and it will work. Bonus points if the jacket and skirt have matching shades, as that’s what’s known as a Canadian Tuxedo. However, you don’t have to match them up. You can mix and match any color or shade. To make it pop, try a boldly colored tee shirt with boots. You will look stylish and make a statement.

If you have a denim skirt in your closet or dresser collecting dust, it’s time to take it out. It’s one of the most versatile pieces you can wear, and it looks great to boot. Pair it with any of these pieces to dress it up or down. Your denim skirt is perfect for a casual day with friends or an official day at the office.
