When looking for a denim skirt you may be overwhelmed at the amount available. Knowing how to choose the right one is important. Selecting the right one depends on your taste, shape and current fashion trends. Another deciding factor will be practicality. Seasonal items may prove to be a great bargain, but the best one really should be able to be worn year round.
When you wear a denim skirt you should be making a fashion statement that is reflective of your personal style. Of course, not all places or events will be an appropriate place to wear one, but it should be versatile enough to be dressed up or down. A good place to start is looking at the length. Mini skirts are good for warm months and they can also be worn with leggings in winter months. Long skirts are a great winter staple when paired with a pair of ankle boots. The best choice would probably be a knee length skirt. It is long enough to be worn with a pair of knee boots and short enough to highlight your legs. The knee length skirt can be paired with formal accessories to make an after work outfit or worn with a t-shirt for a more casual look.
The look of a denim skirt that is currently in style changes frequently. Although embellishments, hardware and trim may change from season to season, the A-line is a classic favourite. Another standard style is the pencil skirt. Finding the best style will depend on how your body is shaped. You should feel comfortable in whatever you wear no matter what particular item is chosen. Try on a variety of different style by different brands to see which looks and feels best on you.
Another factor that must be considered is the material in which the skirt is made from. Denim is made from cotton, but other fabrics such as spandex and polyester are also used in jean material. A garment that is made from 100% cotton is very likely to shrink after the first wash. The same goes for denim and spandex blends. It is a good idea to choose a size up if the item was a perfect fit when you first tried it on.
One of the largest variables to consider when choosing a denim skirt is colour. A basic black skirt can become a staple of your wardrobe if the right length and style is chosen. If you are looking for a signature piece, look for a light or dark blue skirt with a notable jean texture. Trendy colours such as pink, green and brown quickly fall out of fashion. Try to avoid trendy colours if you intend on wearing your skirt over several seasons. The same goes when looking at garments with sequins, embroidering and trims.
A tastefully worn skirt with the right accessories should make a statement about you, not your pocketbook or a particular trend. If you pick the right one, you should be able to wear it again and again without repeating the same look.
Consider your existing wardrobe before you decide to go shopping and you will ultimately make a purchase that will turn heads.
