Denim skirt, is a feminine piece. Of course, it is also important the combination you are going to choose. We are talking about a versatile piece. Indeed, no matter the event you attend (almost actually…) you can use in your outfit combo, a denim skirt. The name denim comes from the sixteenth century France where a fabric called “Serge de Nimes” was used, meaning “fabrics in the city of Nimes”.
We all know that the invention of the first denim clothing is due to Levi Strauss. Now, denim is a very popular material that each of you have in your home. Whether you have a denim skirt, a jacket, but most have at least one pair of jeans.
The advantage of the denim skirt is that you can wear it very easily in different situations, and even make it easy to go from day to night. If you can wear a pair of sneakers and a simple t-shirt or a sailor to the evening with a simple pair of sandals with a heel and an asymmetrical top, you totally transform your look.
In the 1990s and early 2000s, any adolescent had at least one skirt of jeans, usually a miniature, always assorted with a mulum. Perhaps this “uniform” has brought a jealousy to the skirt of jeans and has remained for years ignored by designers and fashionists. But recently the denim skirt returned to strength, in styles completely different from those we used to be many years ago. At present, this piece of clothing looks as modern and interesting as possible.
There are tendencies in the midi skirts, with a type A cut and applications or embroidery that adds more personality. Also, the mini jeans are fringed or asymmetrical.
It is very important to feel very comfortable wearing it. Indeed denim skirt is a versatile and useful, but take into consideration how see yourself wearing it.
Informal vs Formal?
With the help of a jeans skirt you can create various combinations, both informal and formal. A daily outfit will not be the same as a formal event. And the style between day and evening will vary.
Thus, with a single skirt, a lot of combinations can be made. For example, you can opt for shirts and blouses for more formal occasions, some nice shoes with a heel and a jacket. Instead, if you combine jeans with a more casual t-shirt and flat boots or shoes, you’ll create a cool everyday outfit.
Long Or Short Jeans Skirt?
Skirt length varies depending on various factors. Besides the occasion, it will greatly influence the shape of the body, when the appropriate jeans skirt must be chosen. For example, for tall women, the pencil skirts below the knees are recommended, while for the smaller ones they will fit the ones above the knees. The item above will need to be wider or a tighter t-shirt can be chosen, depending on the silhouette. Jeans skirts allow various combinations.
With Heels Or Without Heels?
Combining a denim skirt with a pair of heels will depend on many factors. In addition to the type of event – considering that in the case of the formal ones you should always wear your heels, also take into account the place where you go, how many hours you have to spend on your feet, how long you resist on the heels.
If you know in advance that you won’t feel comfortable with heels, opt for flat shoes that combine with a jeans skirt. You can even opt for sports shoes. There is also the option to use both variants. When you get tired of heels, you can change to flat shoes.
As you can see, the jeans skirt can be combined with various interesting items. If you don’t have a jeans skirt in your wardrobe yet, I recommend you buy one, and try on chic outfits. Remember that denim is fashionable this season!
A very casual, comfortable and. Most of all versatile piece is a denim skirt. Bear in mind, that wearing this kind of skirt you will also be, in trend. Yes, because in the right combo is a fantastic piece of clothing.
No matter which is your daily activity, a denim skirt is perfect. For example, if you love to dress very stylish and elegant, your first thought regarding denim skirt could be that is totally inappropriate. Well, this is wrong. For a super stylish look, try a shirt and a pair of stiletto.
If you are going to go with a denim skirt to your office, of course if dress code allows you that, try to respect the following:
– the length of the skirt to be long as at least medium.
– avoid patched skirt when you go the office
– go for decent formal colors, blue, black or maybe grey
– avoid asymmetrical denim skirt
Combinations are very important, of course, so try denim skirt in combination with:
– try combination with t-shirt, and some high heels
– a sweater , looks alright with denim skirt
– in certain relaxed situation, a combination with t-shirt looks very nice
– accessories are an important part of the outfit
– avoid sport sneakers when you wear denim skirts. So, wear it only with ballet shoes, boots and, of course stilettos.
Choosing the right denim skirt
There are many cuts: mini, midi, skater, trapeze, pencil, long… This is also one of the main assets of the denim skirt: there is something for all ages, body types and tastes.
Know that these cuts will always be timeless.
What to avoid:
– Tears (depending on the year, we will suggest tears in the bottom or in the waist or on the whole fabric … in short, this is constantly changing). However, I am not against the raw bottom hem, ie cut rather than sewn.
– All the details added to the dress: embroidery, pearls, fabrics…. They are also renewed with the seasons.
– The model that combines short, stretch and low waist. The mini is no longer meant to be tight, it hugs your curves but without compressing them. Likewise, the low waist should be avoided in your wardrobe. As for the mini cut, it is topical, but make sure it covers your buttocks and goes down a few inches just below.
– The washes: it is better to opt for a non-washed model whose fabric will acquire a patina over time and provide a less artificial rendering.
It is better not to go for all the skirts possible and imaginable but rather to models that you can wear over time. It is not doing you a favor to push yourself into frantic consumption in which you will waste money, time, well-being and which in the end could take you away from your deepest aspirations.
On the other hand, if one year you flash on pearls for example, nothing prevents you from buying a model, but this is a strong piece that you will probably wear for a season or two, do not invest a big budget for this piece.
The timeless ones will be denim blue, raw blue, gray, white and black. In the summer you can bet on color or pastel hues. Fall, burgundy, khaki or mustard can be interesting shades.
Do not combine color patterns: you will get tired of them more easily. If you only had to own one or two models, you’ll need to focus on denim or raw blue.
The blue denim offers a more casual side, the raw more sophisticated. It’s up to you to decide according to your style but also your desires. Note that it is more obvious to wear raw in summer as well as in winter.
At each age its skirt
The denim skirt at 20
At this age you can wear all models as long as you respect your body type. This is also a good time to orient yourself towards short and ripped models. Your skirt will easily be worn with pieces from the sportswear register such as sneakers or even the sweatshirt.
To wear the mini well, don’t hesitate to read the following article: “How to wear a mini skirt?”
Don’t get locked into overly classic looks. If you don’t dare at your age, you probably never dare. If you wear a T-shirt with your skirt for example, choose an offbeat tee-shirt (message, print, texture)…. Bet on accessories such as backpacks, fun glasses or jewelry.
The denim skirt at 30
At 30, you will have to sophisticated your look. The idea is to readjust your style so that it doesn’t discredit you.
Thirties sign a new era, the girl becomes a young woman and you will be able to express it through your outfits. However, do not lock yourself in a look too wise. For example, you can wear an offbeat tee-shirt but rather than pick a denim blue skirt, choose raw blue and swap the mini for a sheath or midi skirt. No need to change your entire wardrobe, just opt for different combinations by mixing quirky and sophisticated pieces. As accessories, a scarf, a pretty leather handbag, gold bangles …
Example: light blue denim skirt, slightly loose sweater, wicker bag with scarf tied on it and patent moccasins on the feet.
The denim skirt at 40
The most suitable models are those that stop just above the knee or the sheath models. At the top, avoid black or white. Bring color. The color brings pep’s to your outfit but also youth to your face. This is the best of all anti-wrinkles.
Badly made materials, however, have no place in your wardrobe. On the feet, sneakers are not prohibited, quite the contrary. They will modernize your style and provide comfort that you will not be able to do without.
Example: floral blouse, buttoned midi sheath skirt, leather bag and heeled sandals.
The denim skirt at 50 and over
At 50, we forget the washes and we bet on a classic or raw blue.
We do not hesitate to add a small jacket (the famous third piece) which will complete the look. The length of the skirt should be at least just above the knees. Skirts that are too short create a mismatch and may unexpectedly age more.
Don’t hesitate to bet on strong piece accessories that will be easier to wear than a “strong piece” garment. The colors, the colorful jewels … The trick is to combine classic and modernity.
