The denim skirt

Do you have a denim skirt? If you don’t, you should.main.original.585x0-2

It isn’t always in fashion and it might lay in the bottom of the cupboard waiting…. but, sooner or later, will come back out!

The reason, of course, is that IT IS a really good “problem solver”!! Not as much as a pair of jeans, nevertheless, very good. I find it especially useful in the transitional seasons, when you are not sure whether you should wear a winter or a summer skirt. Denim is “seasonless”. Of course if the denim is light in colour or weight, it does need to be worn only in the summer. Not true the opposite, I think heavier or darker denim looks nice even when it’s hot and sunny! Providing you are actually able to wear it without melting….main.original.585x0-3

It looks nice with or without tights, with a woollen jumper or with a cotton top. It looks nice with heels and with flats.main.original.585x0-4

Denim is a great fabric, its thickness and toughness, helps to “hold in” bulks….

Don’t think only classic denim skirt, although it is always great, but lots of different styles:


There’s the pencil skirt:

Also buttoned up at the front:

There’s the vintage skirt:

I do need to put some classic skirts:

The “fun” skirt:



The A-line skirt:

There’s also looser styles:

I have chosen against showing short, or shorter for that matter, styles. I don’t like them.

So, they are nice with just about anything. Yes. Well, I don’t really like denim with black. I used to, but it has been overdone, so I don’t like it anymore. Colours are going to make denim casual.

Denim skirt + tweed jacket

Depending on what you wear with it, you will make it more or less casual. I reckon it can be reasonably elegant too though. The shoes make quite a difference as well.

Denim skirt + trench






Jackets can be nice with this kind of skirt but, if you are going to wear a classic blazer, go extravagant with the shoes or jewellery at least.

Navy is always nice… if a bit classic.

I like tweed too…a little more casual but again, it depends on the accessories.

What about a trench coat or a fabric biker?

Of course you don’t have to wear a jacket, you could just wear a shirt to make the outfit a little elegant.

Or more casual.



A sweater will definitely make it quite casual,love these fair isle ones…

Don’t forget to wear a belt if there are loops on the skirt.

Or even if there aren’t.





Shoes. Anything goes. Flats, brogues, heels, ankle boots. I don’t like under the knee boots, they look, I reckon, “common” with the denim skirt.

I do like black for the shoes only.
