Denim has always been a wardrobe essential.

That's why it's no surprise that one of the biggest trends this season, making a comeback from the '90s, is the denim skirt! It’s a closet staple that pairs well with almost anything because of its simplicity and versatility. No matter how you style it, this minimalist piece will surely make a statement. Don't miss out and give this trend a shot. With different washes and designs, you’re bound to find the perfect one for you! If you’re still unsure on how to style it, scroll down below to get some inspo from your favorite celebs and bloggers as they show you different ways  you can rock the denim skirt trend!

 1  Shoulder-Baring 

Pair your denim skirt with another trend favorite this season: the off-shoulder top. Try matching it with a skirt that in a lighter denim wash and then accessorize with bold and vibrant colors (which may or may not include a bright yellow sunflower) to give your look that extra oomph.


 2  Sporty Spice 

Keep it sporty by pairing your denim skirt with a plain black tee or a sweater along with your favorite kicks. Finish it off with your chic crossbody bag and a fedora for some added flair.
