Your idea of a denim skirt is probably pretty limited, but that’s just not the case anymore. Today, they’re more versatile than anything your high school, Abercrombie & Fitch-loving self could ever imagine.
For starters, the embroidered on Chloe Grace Moretz is wearing puts any and all of your go-to jeans to shame—and that’s a big feat. Her black crop top, leather jacket and killer platforms are then the cherries on top of the cake. If you’re planning to wear yours during the day, sneakers or ankle boots would also do the trick. Take notes, people.
Take a peek at Karlie Kloss‘ lengthy number. That’s as sophisticated as they get, if you ask us. Its brassy button fly and light wash gives off an almost-vintage feel while its A-line shape and just-below-the-knee hem keeps it relevant. Paired with a tucked-in tee, white loafers, and cool mirrored, cat-eye sunglasses, the model turned the retro skirt into a major style statement—and you can too!
Joan Smalls‘ then $ 35 H&M skirt is now $ 18. If that isn’t a sign, we don’t know what is. Stray from the average one-toned look and go for something with patchwork. Why choose a wash when you don’t have to (especially when it looks this good)? All you need are chunky ankle strap heels and you’re good to go.
By now you’ve gotten the hint: Raw hemmed denim is in. Big time. And Alessandra Ambrosio‘s denim skirt solidifies that. It’s an easy piece to fit into any wardrobe, but keep everything else slim-fitting. That way, all eyes are on your style-heavy edges.

If you’re going to take style tips from anyone, it might as well be a big-time fashion designer like Rebecca Minkoff. Her casual outfit (spotlight on that dark-washed mini) makes for the perfect comfortable yet chic look. Pro tip: Play with different textures. Her ruffled shirt, leather jacket and suede clogs all have different feels, but they work together swimmingly. #NailedIt
