My Instagram DM @authenticallyritah has been getting a little bit more of these questions lately:
“Are denim skirts still stylish in 2020?“
“Can we rock denim skirts and still look stylish today?“
Well, at this point i totally resonate with this famous quote from Lauren Hutton “Fashion is what we are offered four times in a year by designers. Style is what you choose”
When it comes to denim skirts, we have so many shades all the way from light to darker ones. You can never go wrong with the classic black or white washes in my opinion. The other colors can still be rocked with no issues at all. Just depends on how you style them ultimately.
The length of the skirt is also very crucial if you want to add an everlasting charm to the entire look. Knee length ones always do the magic.
Today I’m going to explore different ways in which you can style a denim skirt using this lovely skirt which i got from Jamia Mall. Love it because it really fits well and the quality is amazing, height and dark blue wash are to my liking. It hence fits the bill.
So without further ado, let’s explore the various styles which Authentically Ritah is showcasing today right below:-
Style 1 :Go for a Statement Top
Getting a stylish statement top will combine so well with your knee length denim skirt.
I went for this high low dress top. Okay i’m really sorry i cant link the exact shop where i got this top because it was a gift from a good friend. I have however seen such pieces at Sun Beam.
Front tucked tops would be another great alternative in this case to give the denim a whole new different spin from the ordinary designs.
Sandals will also pair very well with denim. I opted for these nude ones from heel to toe. These ones rotate in my wardrobe like nobody’s business lol!
In case you are wondering how this top would look at the back, check it out below:
I’m intrigued by the fact that from behind one would actually think it’s a dress but upon turning you notice the denim vibe.
You can always add a belt to these type of attire for that finesse. Which one do you prefer, the belted or unbelted style? Feel free to leave a comment in the reply box at the bottom of this post!
Style 2 :Go for a Brighter Top
For a second look, i’ve paid the denim skirt with this bright top from Lyl Fashions. I love the interesting pattern at the lower part of the floral top.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you most probably know that i am a junkie of these white canvas. Got this ones from Bata Kenya. They pair perfectly with the denim skirt and are great when you are going about your errands.
You will notice the cute top was in the try-on haul which I did in the previous post. I also rocked this look before right here as well.
You can choose to tuck in the top or just leave it out. Still looks good in my opinion.
Combining the skirt with a colorful top makes the denim pop since it’s of a darker wash.
Style 3: Show a little bit of skin
I love this fancy light sweater top for several reasons . For starters it was relatively affordable, it’s flattering and shows a little bit of skin without revealing too much. The combi generally looks awesome on a plus sized body frame in my opinion.
Lets not talk about my squinty eyes in the pics below. The sun was a little bit too much but I believe you most importantly get the outfit grip lol!
I digress…. the look has been paired with these super comfy black and white sneakers. These ones are also from Bata Kenya.
Anyways, if you love casual shoes that can work perfect when you are on the move these sneakers will serve you really well. I’ve recently had this hat obsession and thought to add this adorable beret from forever Trendy.
You can find these kinds of fancy sweater tops from Toi Market.
What would you like to see in my future posts? It would be my pleasure to be of help to you in terms of fashion and style content!
Final verdict on whether denim skirts are out of style:
To respond to the question” Are denim skirts out of style?” I’d say nope. You can wear them forever and still look good. It just depends on how you style them. Combine them with what sparks joy to you and remember your comfort is key.
Okay trends will always be there but I don’t think being too much into them will make your life any easier. It’s so important to choose your own style and rock it without being so much into what’s in or what’s not in.The essence is to embrace the trends and not to obsess about them. Just strike a tasty balance by creating something unique to yourself.
I hope this post has inspired you to rock that denim skirt again just in case it’s taking a backseat in your wardrobe.
