Rock the denim skirt

 

By Hassan Ssentongo

This is such good news. Denim skirts are back! The once popular trend in the late 90s and early 2000s is back, thanks to fashion’s cyclical nature. Stylish women such as Bonang Matheba, Rihanna, Bella Hadid and more have already been spotted wearing this skirt. The new denim skirt is classier with a clean and polished finish. The hemlines are slightly longer. It also comes with higher waistlines. Other details include pseudo buttons and slits that add drama.
The other beauty of it is that it flatters all body shapes.

How to style your denim skirt
•Some denim skirts come with coordinating tops and jackets. It does not hurt to wear yours like a uniform. Denim is a timeless style trend, and you can never go wrong with it.
•The new denim skirt comes with detail such as frays, patchwork and more. Turn your skirt into the centre piece of your ensemble, and put everything else starting from it.
•For work, wear your skirt with a crisp white shirt and pointy toe heels. It is a breath of fresh air from the usual work wear look. And yes, a denim skirt with the prefect length can be work wear appropriate.
•Denim on print. Wear your denim skirt with a printed cropped top. The skirt should be of a high waist make. This is how to bare your midriff in style.
•A new styling trend that is tricky to pull off but is very interesting to look at, is wearing your mini skirt over a dress or shirt. Wear a long dress shirt and layer a denim mini over it so that the hemline of the shirt peeks out of the skirt. Interesting right?
•For skirts that come with a slit, make the slit the most interesting part of your outfit. Usually, it is best to push the slit to only the front or side, but not to the back. There is always some drama there especially when the slit is at the front. Use that to your advantage.
•Accessorise your skirt with a fringed purse for that boho inspired look.
