You know those items that you SWEAR you will never wear again because you cringe every time you think about how cheesy they were the first time around?! Any of you guys who were in high school or college in the late 90s/early 2000s , I bet my bottom dollar that you each had AT LEAST 4 versions of the denim miniskirt– probably from Abercrombie, Aeropostale, American Eagle, and Hollister (basically all the same store, right? Why did it take me till my 20s to realize this?! Also, please stop spraying cologne and turning down the lights so much Hollister and Abercrombie — you all know what I’m talking about! I like to see and breathe while shopping, hope that’s ok…)  Anyway– my favorites on rotation all had major distressing, maybe a rhinestone or two, and frayed hems…and I totally rocked them with Ugg boots and Juicy Couture zip ups (literally about to puke thinking about this !!!)

So I swore, no denim skirts, period, ever again.

Because it’s either like 2000s bald Britney or an old Amish woman, with denim skirts, that is.

But, as it often happens in fashion , (and what I love about it best) the denim skirt has made a resurgence– and a pretty cool one at that.  Right on board with the 70s vibe that came on strong last season and will continue to dominate this year, this “new” denim skirt has no bad Britney/Amish vibes attached to it– the A-line mini with buttons down front begs to be worn with flat sandals and a tank or tee tucked in now, loafers and booties with a cropped sweater or slim turtleneck come fall.  It’s one of those fashion items that hits you upside the head and makes you reconsider your own “never agains” and simultaneously sparks ideas for lots of new outfit combos that feel fresher than ever. I’ve linked my exact skirt from Topshop above, and three similar options in varying price points below– happy skirting!

xo, ❤
