Are Denim Skirts A Thing?

by - August 24, 2017

So, the first time I ever casually wore a skirt was in the 9th grade and it wasn't voluntarily. I say casually because every Jamaican school girl knows the uniform woes of skirts and tunics until you get to University life. I've never been a fan of skirts and barely know how to sit in them properly so give me a pair of denims or trousers and let's call it a day.

Except, here I am wearing a skirt. Let me explain. I want to say this is the result of an early onset of dementia caused by the heat but actually I got rid of all my clothes and I truly have nothing else to wear. I've been on a little quest to really define my style and it didn't feel anything like what I already owned so I've been collecting new pieces and experimenting a lot. Exhibit A:

I'm a simple girl and for me to feel the most like myself, my outfit has to be the perfect marriage of chic and comfort. My formula has always been: pants + button down + complementary nice shoes = easy. Living in Paris however complicated things just a bit and made me realize that even the easy going Parisienne changes it up once in a while.

I decided to remix my go-to formula and pair an Old Navy button down with a H&M denim skirt instead of jeans for a fool proof casual look. The H&M velvet sandals was an attempt to add a little finesse. These cactus earrings from Mango have been itching for a debut so I added them too for the fun of it.

When styling a denim skirt, I realized it's pretty easy to miss so whatever you choose, be smart about the silhouette. Anything that is cinched at the waist like a wrapped top or a blouse that is tucked in is recommended. Ive seen the cool fashion girls wear it with bell-sleeve blouses that look so GOOD! Personally, if I do wear this skirt again, it'll be with a Tshirt or a denim button down because, simple does it.

So, what do you think? Are denim skirts a thing?
