A long denim skirt with a blood red cashmere sweater – even better if it can be off-shoulder like this – red pumps, a high bun, sunglasses, and a tote bag to finish this look. Confident, strong, and stylish – check! You can also bring out a vintage vibe with this long skirt and a classic turtleneck top.

According to Paola Farina, Personal Stylist, “Play with colors like white, gray, and beige and wear this kind of skirt to the workplace, especially if you work in a non-formal or creative environment. You can pair it with a plain shirt, a blouse, a camisole, or a simple tee with a jacket.”

Sue, a blogger, recalls her personal experience of styling a denim skirt in some unique yet classy ways. She chose a long denim skirt and paired it with a solid-colored shirt, stripy tee, sweatshirt, and more for a casual yet sophisticated look. She feels experimental and seems satisfied with the final look, and adds, “ I think it just feels a little fresher to try a different shape, style, and denim finish (i).”

The denim skirt has evolved over the last few decades to match the changing trends, and the trend this season is a skirt with a center slit.

This edgy, street-style fashion radiates freshness and style.

Now, here’s a skirt that is not very common, and all the more reason for you to give it a shot. Remember, it is important to choose a model that fits our silhouette. If you want to hide the belly, the darker side need to be in the front, while if you want to reduce the hips, the darker shades are along the sides.

This look works great if you are going on a date night or for lunch with friends. The black flats complement the outfit, and the beachy waves give it a casual vibe.

10. Knee Length Chambray Flared Skirt

Chambray has been around, a lot, but wait – these skirts are something new! Yep, you’re right. Try this fit and flare chambray skirt and a simple racerback tank top – tuck it in, and wear sneakers or converse shoes. Paola Farina says, “This is my favorite because you can pair it with boots and a cashmere sweater or with pumps and a shirt. It is very elegant and effortless, and the fabric is less stiff than denim.”

Some people love the denim skirt and legging combination, go for it, but stick to black, white or nude leggings.

  • Pair a fitted top with a long denim skirt for a balanced look. A tucked-in blouse or form-fitting tee also work well. Additionally, dress up the skirt with a blouse or dress down with a graphic tee or tank top.
  • Layer your outfit with a cardigan, denim jacket, or blazer, depending on the season. This adds depth and style.
  • Sneakers and sandals offer a casual look, while ankle boots and heels provide a more formal touch.
  • You can go for a monochromatic look or add pops of color through your top, accessories, or even a colorful handbag.
  • The wash of a denim skirt can determine its level of formality, with darker washes appearing more formal and lighter washes appearing more casual.
