When I think of a ‘denim skirt’ the first thing that comes to mind is a floral patchwork studded with rhinestones, a low waist look from Lizzie McGuire. And even though the style of the early 2000s is totally the vibe, you still have to do a little styling research to get the look right.
If you choose the right style, cut and wash (we’ll talk about that later), then carefully select the perfect accessories, you can make any denim skirt look modern and cool. The key here is to find a skirt that acts more like a neutral skirt (read: no acid wash, aggressive wear, or too short hems), then build the rest of your cut from there. Need to see some examples for yourself? No problem. Find out about the internet’s best denim skirt outfits that feel so 2020.
Profesh with an advantage
