Wearing long denim skirts does not have to look frumpy! I’ve been wearing a lot more maxi skirts during my pregnancy, but before I became pregnant I lived in denim skirts. I wore my favorite denim skirt probably 3-4 times a week! They are practical, cute, and can be paired with so many different tops.
Whether denim skirts are currently in style or not, I consider them a staple in a wardrobe. If you don’t wear jeans at all, they can easily replace them in your closet! However, you don’t have to wear an outdated denim skirt that is looking thread worn. If you know where to look you can find some really cute ones out there!
This is one area I feel it is better to spend a little extra money (if you have it!) and get a good quality denim skirt that will last you awhile. Some ladies have huge success finding denim skirts at the thrift store. I don’t find many there at all.
Keeping it Casual
Don’t be afraid to have one nice denim skirt that you can dress up or down. I wear the rainbow denim skirt a lot everyday with more casual tops, but I have a friend who has worn it to church several times and it looks great with the nicer tops or blazers she puts with it!
1. Pink Flannel 2. Plus Size Solid Shirt 3. Brown Shirt
4. Gray Tee 5. Purple Shirt 6. Striped Shirt
These are all casual tops good for everyday wear. They can handle baby spit up, doing the dishes, and holding babies all day long. You can easily pair them with a scarf or a necklace if you want to add a little more style to these shirts. I don’t like wearing scarves at home, but if I’m running an errand I can quickly add one to my outfit to dress it up.
1. Tiered Skirt 2. Knee Length 3. Distressed Denim 4. Denim Maxi
5. Blue Maxi with Belt 6. Midi Skirt 7. Rainbow Denim 8. Ruffle Denim 9. Casual Long Denim
There are so many ways you could style these cute denim skirts! You need to buy a skirt based on your needs though, not on how cute it looks on the model.
Are you in a season of motherhood with babies or toddlers and are on the ground all the time? A pencil skirt is not for you, and you should pick a mid-maxi length skirt so you will be modest and covered while you are on the floor.
If you work in an office, a knee length-midi will work for you because you are sitting at a desk all day.
Dressing it Up
If you are trying to keep a smaller wardrobe, funds might be limited or you just might be a minimalist, you can dress up a denim skirt! Here are a few cute ideas.
I love this outfit! We are starting a new event on Fridays on the Deborah & Co. Facebook page. Every Friday I’m sharing an outfit I’m wearing that day (just snapping it with my phone) and then everyone is invited to share their outfit of the day. This was an outfit that was shared and I received permission to post it here. You can find the skirt on Amazon.
This is a cute, somewhat casual yet somewhat dressy outfit. I would wear this on a date night for sure!
The trick to dressing up a denim skirt is the complete look. You need to have cute shoes and cute accessories to really make a denim skirt appear more dressy. The denim is the casual part, and everything else stands out as being more dressy.
Some good accessories are scarves, Lilla Rose flexi clips or headbands, cute earrings or necklace, or a cute belt. You can find most of those items at thrift stores, ThredUP, clearance racks, or request them for your birthday!
I’d love to hear your ideas for how you wear a denim skirt!
