I’ve wanted to put together a post showing you six ways to style a denim skirt for a long time. You can make the same skirt have many different looks, based on what tops and accessories you put with it. Don’t be discouraged if you have a small wardrobe, just make sure you have one denim skirt that you love and can wear a lot. The different looks are endless!

Ladies seem to either love or hate a denim skirt. I fall in the love category. They are practical, comfortable, and you can still look super cute and stylish wearing one!


In most of these outfits I have my hair pulled back with an X-Small Kaleidoscope flexi clip from Lilla Rose.

I’m wearing L’BRI Pure and Natural makeup in all these photos. I used three different lipstick colors, Do Kiss, Desert Rose, and Sugar Plum.

Outfit #1

A casual outfit to stay at home, or go out and run errands in.

Rainbow Denim Maternity Skirt – Deborah & Co. (Both the woman’s and the maternity version are back in stock!)

Pink Blush Maternity Top

Boots – Zulily

Necklace – Sugar and Spice from Mialisa

I love this honey color cardigan! It really finishes the whole outfit,.

Outfit #2

I would wear this outfit to Wednesday night church, a date night, any event that needs an outfit slightly more put together, but still not super fancy.

Gap Striped Maternity Shirt – I purchased this gently used with credit from ThredUP. You can get $10 in credit if you are a brand new customer to ThredUP and join here!

Cardigan – Deborah & Co. It is not a maternity cardigan but I’ve learned a lot of maternity cardigans look really huge, so I wear some of my regular cardigans as well.

Scarf – ThredUP

Modern and Modest! Accessories add so much to an outfit.

Outfit #3

Sometimes you can express yourself through your outfit! Normally if my husband doesn’t like an outfit I don’t feel confident enough to wear it. My sister gave me this hat for Christmas (she purchased it from Kohls). Sean wasn’t sure if he liked the look or not, but I decided to just be brave and go ahead and wear it. I wore this outfit to Wednesday night church, and also ran errands all day in it. By the end of the day he liked it. 🙂 If you are trying something new, give it longer than the initial look to see if your family (or you!) will like it!

Gap Gray Shirt – ThredUP

Purple Tank – ThredUP

Scarf – Thrift Store (Banana Republic Brand)

Hat – Kohls

A casual outfit for running errands or staying home, I like adding the scarf for a finishing touch.

Outfit #4

Another casual outfit to wear at home, or go out and about in. I don’t normally dress denim skirts up really fancy, so I focus on how to look casual, but well put together for everyday looks.

Earrings – Pink Button Earrings 

Turn a summery sleeveless shirt into a cute winter outfit by layering with a cardigan or jean jacket!

Outfit #5

You can have a much larger wardrobe if you combine some summer and winter clothes together. The pink top is a lighter weight, sleeveless top but it works perfect wearing it with a jean jacket.

Pink Top – Purchased on Zulily during my last pregnancy

Jean Jacket – Thrift Store

If you have a limited wardrobe, you can dress up a denim skirt with a nicer top and get more use out of your skirt!

Outfit #6

If you have a really limited wardrobe or limited funds, you can dress up your denim skirt by wearing a nicer shirt with it. This is a silky top that I normally wear with a solid black skirt to church. If I was going to wear a denim skirt to Sunday morning church, this is how I would put an outfit together. I would add a necklace to this outfit, we were just running out of time to take these pictures and I didn’t get it on. 🙂

Blue Top – Motherhood (purchased several years ago from a garage sale)

Black Halftee Tank for layering – I love wearing these when I’m pregnant, breastfeeding, or any other time! Since they are cropped, they work great for all seasons of life!

Black Shoes – Thrift Store

Earrings – Carolina from Mialisia (Some of my favorite earrings come from Mialisia!)

12 Comments on Six Ways to Style A Denim Skirt!

  1. I love this! You look so beautiful in all the outfits. I love denim as well because to us skirt wearers it is the alternative to wearing “blue jeans.” I love how you can dress it up, or dress it down depending on the event. Great post!!! 🙂

  2. I know I’ve said it B4, but I *love* outfit #3 🙂 I Love my denim skirts 😀 I find that some are more dressy than others, which makes them more versatile, because they can be dressed up enough to wear to church on Sunday, but then can be relaxed and casual, as well 🙂 Thanks for the great outfit inspirations!!! 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m going to be posting a hair tutorial soon. 🙂 And yes, you really need to look into ThredUP, I love it!!

  3. I love your style! I really really love the purple tank top in outfit #3. And, good for you for wearing the hat for the day and seeing how you like it in the end. Glad your husband came around on it, too. I have strawberry blond hair, which means my eyebrows aren’t really visible due to being so light. A few years ago, I got a makeover and the person put eyebrow powder (I don’t know the proper term) on my eyebrows. She warned me it would look very dramatic to me and she was right! I felt really self conscious and that I looked so obviously made up (not my style at all). Thankfully, my Sister was with me and said it looked great. Now I can’t imagine NOT wearing it daily. So glad I took a chance and purchased the powder and use it.

  4. Hello, I am glad to see modesty being discussed as a positive attribute and goal. I apologize for being so direct here in my comment.
    You may not have noticed but your skirt has signs of wear on the thigh sections. It rather emphasises them, in fact. It actually makes it appear as if you aren’t wearing a slip. A slip is a most crucial garment to be worn with dresses and skirts. It is difficult to find slips and other proper undergarments these days unless you make them yourself. I believe I saw some in a catalog. Blair was the name.
