When I am buying clothing, I really like to think about how and when I will wear it. A skirt is a perfect item to wear year around. You can change it up so many ways.
In my closet, my denim skirt is one of the basic pieces that I can build my outfit from. In my post My Fall Uniform I talked about my basic pieces being my jeans and a white t-shirt. The denim skirt adds another basic to my spring and summer uniform.
A denim skirt is a good buy if you buy the right one. It can be timeless. I searched for the perfect denim skirt for years. A couple of years ago I found the right one at Gus Mayer. It is made by Frame. Unfortunately, they do not make this exact skirt but I have found some others that I like here.
The look I am wearing here is perfect for a spring day when I am running errands or meeting a friend for a casual lunch. In fact, the top and bra I am wearing are from my activewear clothes. So I worked out (I didn’t really sweat), and then just changed my leggings for my denim skirt and sneakers.
- Make sure the length feels good. Not too long and not too short. I have bought mini denim skirts only to have them expose too much skin when I sit down. Try it on and make sure you can sit comfortably in your skirt.
- If you are only buying one denim skirt, I would stick with one that is more of a medium to dark wash. This way you will be able to wear it year round.
In spring I wear layers. That way as the day warms up, I can shed my layers and still be comfortable. I have made the mistake too many times of not wearing layers and then either being too hot for the day or too cold. The jacket I am wearing I bought this fall and it has been a great stable for me. I will wear this through the spring for sure. The price is pretty awesome too!
Here are some other items that I will be wearing with my denim skirt this spring and summer:
