Hands up, who hasn’t owned a denim skirt in their lifetime? Keep them up if you still have one sequestered about your wardrobe somewhere. But as perennial as the denim skirt is, picking the right items to for a head-turning denim skirt outfit can be tricky. Too short a skirt with too skimpy a tee and you’re bordering on trashy territory (although, if trashy is what you’re going for, more power to you girl), too long a skirt with too simple or baggy a shirt and you risk looking like someone who rarely has any fun. The trick, you see, is to play with proportions and pick all the right accessories.

Long Denim Skirt
Long denim skirts are dangerous territory. As with any ankle grazing style, with so little flesh on show, the risk is looking frumpy and old beyond your years. The trick, therefore, is to sex up the rest of the outfit. An unbuttoned shirt, a leather jacket, some heels and a cool pair of shades will steer you well away from prim and into cool territory.
Making The Most Of A Mini
Mini denim skirts are a tale as old as time, but bare too much extra flesh and you might look too casual. Headed to a gig? That's fine. But headed for brunch or work? You might want to consider your options a bit longer. Considering that the mini will let you show off your legs, pairing it with boots and a jumper provides a nice contrast.
Double denim isn't just the preserve of cowboys, anyone can give it a go. And the great thing about the Canadian tuxedo is that you can mix and match. These days, clashing your denims is fine. Just add some accessories that pull the look together, such as this matching belt and bag combo.
Deconstructed Denim Skirt
If you're really aiming for grunge and another opportunity to take advantage of this year's combat boot trend, then opt for some deconstructed denim. A great way to show off your style credentials, while keeping a nonchalant, tough-girl vibe.
