Anyone else excited that jean skirts are back!? I will always have a soft spot for jean mini skirts. They just bring back such great memories. Summer nights, teen love, Nysync, and makeover slumber parties. Well now, this style is trending again and they are mini and frayed as ever.What I love about jean skirts, is that there are endless possibilities on how to style your skirt. You can pair this skirt with almost any kind of top and fabric. Be creative and pair your denim skirt with a classic white tee, lace blouse, a leather moto jacket, or even try denim on denim. Though denim skirts can be fun and flirty, here are a few tips (rules) to think about when wearing a mini denim skirt.
1.) Choose Flats
The trick with mini skirts is that it’s all about balance. The best choice of shoes are sneakers, ballet flats, loafers, or flip-flops. Think of your skirt as cut-off shorts and ask yourself whether you’d pair the shoes with your cut-off shorts. Keep your heels and platforms to a bare minimum.
However, with a mid-thigh length skirt, you’re definitely going to want to wear some sort of a heel. When choosing heels, a wedge is a solid option, and will give you the height without being too formal. For the cooler months, a pair of heeled ankle boots are the perfect choice. With a mid-thigh skirt, you will want to elongate your legs with the proper shoe. An A-line skirt complements the heels perfectly.
2.) Don’t go too tight
Again, balance is pivotal! Short hemlines and skin-tight bottoms do not go together. Keep it classy and lady like by choosing one or another. Choose a loose fitting skirt or simply choose the next size up. You can choose a tighter fit if your hemline is at the appropriate length such as an A-line midi skirt.
4.) Choose the right top
This one is pretty simple. If your skirt is tight, you want to balance your look with a looser blouse. Or layer it up with a sweater, jacket, or blazer.
5.) Use it year around
Your denim mini skirt is no longer just for summer time. For those crisp autumn nights, cosider mixing a boot with a mini skirt. Choose a looser, slouchy boot, that will balance the mini or simply stick with ankle booties. Add a chunky cable knit sweater and pair your mini with tights, stockings, or leggings to keep warm.
I am so excited to be teaming up with JORD to feature this gorgeous wood watch. I am wearing the Zebrawod & Maple. Their watches are so comfortable and light weight. I have been wearing it every single day since it came in the mail. Every time I leave the house with it, someone, somewhere complements me on the watch and asks where it is from. Both men and women have noticed the high quality of this watch. It has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of jewelry and I hope to get one for Josh sometime soon.
