When you hear the words “denim skirt,” chances are you shudder and have flashbacks to the days when a super-short Abercrombie denim skirt was the must-have item among your junior high squad. But as it turns out, the denim skirt is making a comeback this summer. (And no, we’re not talking the one you rocked in 2008.)
Instead, fashion’s latest take on the trend is tons more sophisticated and grown-up. (Thank god.) The ’70s-esque button-front styles and patchwork are key here, and blue denim isn’t necessarily a requirement either – some of our favorite stores’ best pieces come in black, gray or white. If you’re feeling adventurous, there’s even midi and maxi styles to try. This time around, anything goes.
