Six Ways to Style a Skirt

Six Ways to Style a Skirt, denim skirt

This is a fun new idea where I am taking a newer item and shopping my closet for multiple ways to style it! I LOVE new clothes, but frequently we already have pieces in our existing wardrobe that we can mix in and this helps me to get creative. It also helps when I am shopping for new items to ensure that I can envision multiple ways of styling an item. This helps to determine if an item is truly worth purchasing.

And if you’re new around here, I recently styled a jumpsuit and a graphic tee in a couple of different ways!


Recently, I’ve been asked to share alternatives to shorts for the upcoming summer season. For some, shorts just aren’t their jam and sometimes an occasion, while not formal, can call for something a step up from basic shorts. And sometimes we just need a change! This basic denim skirt is so great because not only is it very comfortable but it’s also the perfect length to make it flattering and very practical. For reference, I’m in a size two and would recommend sizing down one from your normal size.

I love wearing skirts in the summer and find them to be so versatile! When I think of ways to style this denim skirt the options are endless but today I’m sharing six styling ideas from casual to dressy.

Skirt + Tee + Basic Sneakers

Of these six ways to style a skirt, this is one of my favorites. Sometimes you just need a change and this comfy casual outfit is such an easy and mom-friendly look.

Skirt + Casual Blouse + Flat Sandals

I love this slightly elevated casual outfit. I’d wear this to brunch or lunch with girlfriends in the summer. It would even be cute for a date night with a little lace bralette peeking out.

Skirt + Summer Sweater + Fun Sneakers

I love styling this skirt a little more sporty with sneakers and a summer sweater. This is another super mom-friendly look and the sweater is the perfect layer for cool spring days or in air conditioning.

Skirt + Summer Sweater + Wedges

Take the above outfit and swap the sneakers for wedges to dress it up a bit! Add a cute bag and this would make for another very cute casual date night outfit.

Skirt + Feminine Blouse + Wedges

For something a little more feminine, I simply added a ruffled blouse and a summer bag. This outfit screams dinner al fresco to me!

Skirt + Dressy Tank + Wedges

Finally, similar to the above outfit but a little edgier, I added a chic leather bag and a black dotted top. Still feminine, but a little more flirty.
