One piece that is certainly making a statement this year is the denim skirt. Ladies, denim is in. From the runways to the sidewalks, women everywhere are rocking their favorite piece of denim clothing. Wondering how you can pull off this fashion trend? Here’s some insight into how you can rock a denim skirt.
Before you can style a denim skirt, you will need to own one. If you don’t already have one in your closet, you can purchase one at almost any store that sells women’s clothing. You can purchase a high end, designer denim skirt from stores such as 7 Jeans, Ralph Lauren or Neiman Marcus. You can find a mid-range denim skirt from J. Crew, Banana Republic or Top Shop. Much more affordable denim skirts can be found at H & M, Forever XXI or Marshalls.
Once you own a denim skirt, you are ready to rock it. While the denim skirt looks great when paired with almost any top or shoe, here are three styles that are especially trendy right now.
One look that is trending in the fashion world is denim on denim. Try pairing your denim skirt with a denim shirt. The trick to pulling off this ultra chic look is to select a denim shirt that is of a different wash than your skirt. So, if your denim skirt is of a dark wash, try wearing a denim skirt that is of a lighter wash. Don’t already own a denim shirt? Well, you can purchase one at most department stores or independently owned shops.
A second way that you can rock the denim skirt is by going for a western look. Try pairing your denim skirt with a cowgirl hat or a pair of great cowgirl boots. You will love this look for fall, and can add further flair to it by adding feminine accessories such as thin bangle bracelets or a necklace that has a delicate chain. You can pick up these items online or at department stores such as Nordstrom’s or Lord and Taylor’s.
A third way that you can rock the denim skirt is by pairing it with animal print, which is very trendy this season. Tops that are of a zebra, cheetah, snow leopard or giraffe print are now readily available in any women’s wear store. Whether you want to pair your denim skirt with a one-shoulder top or a blouse with capped sleeves, you can find a top of this style that is of animal print. Not only does the animal print top offer a nice contrast to the denim skirt, but it also allows you to capitalize on the animal print trend.
Alternatively, if you would rather pair your denim skirt with a solid top, you can opt for a pair of shoes that have an animal print. Cheetah print platform heels or even giraffe print flats would add extra flair to any denim skirt.
