Denim is certainly due an update. This summer our typical jean got a visit from the seventies, and ta-dah, flares were what we were supposed to wear.
But the skirt is now having it's time, and it comes in various shapes and silhouettes to suit our every fashion need. Denim has such power this year, several high street brands are making it a key focus of their campaigns, like Monsoon and Simply Be below.
Whether the mini or the midi is your preference, you can style these new season skirts very easily. Most the skirts will be high waisted, a feature that I love and so do our figures. The high waist will give definition and cinch you in so that the denim looks fitted rather than hang on your hips.
The midi styles need a heel, even if it's a small one to flatter your calves.
And what also works well in terms of styling, is wearing a light fabric to tuck in or trying a top that just skims the waist band.
When we get to winter I like the idea of wearing the denim mini with boots and tights, as well as a lovely knit. Cosy layering I'm calling it. Or you can take the trendy route, and try the poncho look.
The pinafore is a cute take on the denim skirt trend, and if you style this one with a white shirt underneath it can make it more practical. Personally, I think come colder days I'll try a black polo neck under a pinafore which I picked up in the summer sales from Urban Outfitters. But the one above has a nice strong denim to it and some shape.
Zara have cleverly combined two trends into one skirt from their Autumn Winter collection. The a-line skirt has been a firm favourite of mine thanks to it's flattering cut around the hips and bum. The denim version is equally as flattering, and you can unbutton the lower buttons if you want to give it a bit of, well, you know, leg.
What do you think of the denim skirt revival? Is it wearable or a bit too nineties?
