What I Wore: Denim Skirts

November 06, 2015

Now, it wasn't so long ago that I was quite convinced I would never wear a denim skirt again, but - as I'm learning these days - never say never.

Back in the 90s, I had an awesome A-line black denim button-through mini with white stitching. I wore it paired with a little white tee, a black cord waistcoat, knee-high white socks, black brogues, a black pork pie hat and a fake nose ring to the Laura Blue Light Disco, 1993 and I ROCKED it.

I don't have any photos of the look, sadly, but here's my quick artist's impression:

Bangin', am I right?

So when I saw very similar skirts making their way onto shelves this season, I was like "Surely I'm too old to wear those again?"

Then I decided I wasn't and went ahead and bought these in my recent haul from Mix Apparel. On my 37th birthday, no less.

Here's how I'm styling the look for 2015. The first is the Side Zip Denim Skirt and the oddly named Pop Over Knit Blouse from the Mix haul, worn with Converse, Kmart sunglasses and hat from Rivers.

The skirt is quite nifty in that it has working zips on both sides to create side splits.


And in motion:

Two looks with the Denim Button Front Skirt, the first with a knit stripe from Best and Less with Big W peeptoe booties:

And then for cooler weather with tights, boots from Target, a Big W knit and Zalora bag from The Iconic.

Also, if you want to see another take on this skirt, check out Em over at The Illusive Femme who bought the same one!
