Meet your new favorite wardrobe staple: the denim skirt. That’s right, the silhouette is back in a big way, but the 2018 version is way more sophisticated and wearable than the low-rise, thigh-skimming Hollister get-up of yesteryear you might recall rocking during the Laguna Beach era.
Thanks to varying hemlines and silhouettes, the denim skirt is now a classic staple you can easily take from day to night and even to the office, all while looking effortless and sophisticated–it’s like the trend grew up with the generation that loved wearing it. Since spring is officially here, there’s no better time to break out a jean skirt, (especially if you aren’t ready to rock bike shorts just yet)–it’s all about finding the right silhouette that fits your personal sense of style and your body type. Check out some of the updated silhouettes below if you want to add this nostalgic trend to your wardrobe this season.
