Remember back in middle school when the coolest thing you could possibly wear was a denim miniskirt? Well, while *those* denim miniskirts now make most of us cringe, denim will forever have a place in our wardrobes – especially this spring, when the fabric is hotter than ever. Denim vests, chambray skirts and dresses – you name it, it’s on for spring. So, naturally, this week’s Fabulous Find is right on trend!
This adorable smocked-waist denim skirt from Forever 21 is not only in a shape that’s flattering on everyone, but it’s also the perfect staple to take from spring well into summer, fall, and winter! Oh, and by the way, it’s only $17. Beat that!
Smocked Denim Skirt with Belt – $16.90 at Forever 21
As we all know, denim never goes out of style, so check out these three outfits to see a few possible ways to wear this adorable skirt.
1. Bohemian Casual
This outfit is something you could definitely wear to class. The basic combination of a denim skirt and plain white tee gets an extra punch of style with just a few key accessories – some cool rings, a bold statement necklace, and a leopard belt. Top it all off with a cute pair of retro-inspired sunglasses and you’re good to go for a nice spring day of classes!
2. Polished Feminine
This look is more feminine than the last and has an easy, polished feel to it. Here, I paired the skirt with another white shirt, but this time it’s a short sleeved, collared button down. For accessories, I chose a champagne-colored belt, an oversized chain necklace (to be worn like the model – perfect!), a pair of woven oxfords, and some adorable ankle socks. This sweet, girly outfit would work for lunch with the girls, a coffee date, or a meeting with one of your teachers – it’s classic and sweet, but definitely right on trend!
3. Flirty Floral
This last outfit is absolutely perfect for a date. This time, the denim skirt is paired with a floral tube top. (Tube tops aren’t my favorite style of shirt, but corsets are HUGE this spring, and this top is an easier way to pull of the look.) The belt that comes with the skirt can stay with this outfit, because it goes well with these awesome cognac clogs and the wood details on the gold bangles. Finish off the look with a sweet charm necklace and some pretty pink lipgloss for a little extra glam.
So there you have it – three easy ways to style this wardrobe staple. If you don’t have at least one (non-jeans) denim piece already, go get one! You’ll always be able to re-wear it and work it into your wardrobe during any season. And why not start with this amazing skirt for only $17?!
