True blue denim is as classic as it gets. That’s why, when it comes to closet staples, a denim skirt is all the way up there with crew neck tees and your favorite sneakers. Not only does it go with every top – and we mean every top you own – it also works from season to season. Versatile and stylish? Count us in.
Here, we’re showing you four ways to wear a modest denim skirt for spring. From midis to maxis and straight to flared styles, we’ve got all the inspiration you need…
1. The Fitted Midi Denim Skirt
Fitted denim doesn’t have to feel restrictive. Choose straighter silhouettes with a little stretch, then team them with a boxy t-shirt or sweater to balance proportions. Basic tops work, but a floral graphic will add some extra springtime flare. Add a pair of sneakers and, if temperatures start to dip, cozy up in a long cardigan.
You can also go for a print on your denim. Embroidered flowers add a touch of new-season detail, allowing you to opt for something more basic up top. A white or pastel sweater will look particularly pretty for spring. Finish the look with sandals to remind yourself that warmer days are on their way.
2. The Soft Drawstring Denim Skirt
The easiest, breeziest denim skirt you can wear is a drawstring style. Opt for soft, cotton-like fabric in a looser shape, and you’ve got low-key styling down to a T. Layer it over swimwear, pair with short sleeves when the mercury spikes, and always opt for casual shoes to keep your look ultra-laidback.
You can work a drawstring skirt in any shape or length, too. Go midi when the weather is hotter, and have a maxi ready for those cooler spring days.
3. The Flared Denim Maxi Skirt
Who says denim skirts can’t be floaty? They may not boast the airy lightness of a chiffon style, but a flared long skirt is just as feminine. Case in point: these maxi must-haves. Giving off a stylish seventies vibe, they look just as fresh with a floral shirt as they do with a boho blouse. Just make sure you get your choice of footwear right.
Tan boots are a failsafe with mid-wash denim. However, if it’s feeling warm outside, you may want to switch them up for a pair of sandals. The Woven Square Toed Flat is an easy slide-on shoe, while the Beige Strap Top Low Heel gives you a little extra height.
4. The Ultra-Dark Denim Skirt
If you want to make a denim skirt feel dresser, choose a darker wash in black or deep indigo. Perfect for evening; they set off a long sleeve tee or a pretty, patterned top.
Dark denim also matches up with even-ready shoes. Slide on heeled courts or sandals, and you’re dressed for dinner or a gathering with friends.
