What’s Trending Now: Dashing in Denim

Denim. It’s a classic fabric we all know and love. We all have those trustee jeans that never fail to make us look and feel amazing, but did you ever think we’d be seeing our favorite fabric as a  mini skirt–for the second time?

The trend that haunted us in middle school is back: the denim mini skirt. I have to admit, when I first saw these skirts make their reappearance this year, I was a bit taken back. All these memories of denim mini skirts paired with a graphic Abercrombie or Aeropostale T-shirt flooded my mind; I couldn’t shake the association. Like most trends, the denim skirt has grown on me, and I would actually consider buying one.

One of the best things about this trend is how versatile it can be. From distressed and embroidered, to a flirty A-line or sophisticated pencil skirt, you have so many options to choose from. Oh, and not to mention the endless styling opportunities too.

Embroidered denim is huge right now, especially floral designs. When picking out a shirt, you can never go wrong with a plain white tee (perfect for showing off your special skirt). If you want to bring out your inner 90’s girl, pair with a graphic tee, choker, and sneakers.


If distressed denim is more your look, take a few pointers from the blogger below. We love the contrast of denim with a lightweight woven, button up shirt. The polished shirt is a great way to balance out the distress in the denim. For shoes, pair with your favorite sneaker, or your go-to sandal and you’re all set for summer.


If you’re anything like me, then you have a bit of a feminine–or should I say a lot–style. Take on the summer months with a fit and flare silhouette. This style is flattering on every body type. Plus, it never hurts to bring out your inner girlie girl. Pair this denim skirt with a bright patterned top to bring out the most of your summer look. Top it off with coordinating flats or sandals, then you’re good to go! Oh, and you can’t forget about those match needed cat-eye sunglasses.


Sure, vacationing during summer is great, but unfortunately we all have to work. If you’re headed into the office, tackle a more work appropriate take on this trend: a pencil skirt. Denim pencil skirts are great because they make a subtle statement. Pair this skirt with a button up blouse, or cold shoulder blouse. Both options are easy ways to transform this office look for a night out.


Denim skirts can be intimidating, but there’s no need to worry! I promise, you will not feel like you are reliving your middle school fashion disaster.
