Here’s How To Wear The New Denim Skirt Trend

We admit it - this trend is tricky. Here's our guidelines for how to wear it and picks for making the styling simple.
Six to Sunday

You may have owned a denim skirt or two over the years, but we doubt you’ve thought of it as a style star in your wardrobe. It tracks—the denim skirts of yore were way more standard than stand out, and this season it’s the latter that has emerged as a major trend.

Thanks to longer lengths, mixed denim, and unexpected design details, the denim skirt is an afterthought no more. Emerging as chic and style savvy, it’s still as wearable as ever.

We say, don’t overthink it. Inventory is going fast, so take our lead, find a shape that fits your body, and put it on as readily as you would a pair of jeans.
