Denim skirts have been the subject of both praise and criticism within the fashion world, this year denim skirts are getting a lot of love.  This slightly retro trend, which dates back to the 70’s, has come back into popularity and we are happy to see it again. Celebrity fashion icons like Kirsten Dunst, Olivia Palermo and Eva Mendes were all spotted recently rocking denim skirts, each in their own signature style. The denim skirt is on track to peak in popularity right at the beginning of spring time, making it a wardrobe must have for the upcoming warm weather months.

This season the mid-calf, and knee length denim skirts seem to be the most popular. For a super simple and casual spring time look we suggest pairing a button front, knee length denim skirt with a tucked in boho inspired bloused. The flouncy top will mesh well with the stiff denim and soften the look of the skirt.  For an ensemble that a little more sophisticated we suggest pairing a mid-calf length denim skirt with a men’s wear inspired button down shirt and nude tones heels. This look plays down the casual vibe of the denim by adding polished pieces into the outfit.
