I still think the smartest clothing invention is the denim. It’s the most versatile, practical and widely-used thus far. No matter what era you revisit, you will always find denim a staple.

Denim has undergone significant style evolution too. Today, you’ll see a cornucopia of adorned denim – from the ripped versions to the acid-washed ones. Take your pick.
What you should invest in, other than a pair of sturdy and perfectly-fitting denim jeans, is a denim skirt. There are lots of ways to style this piece. Take a cue from these personal style bloggers:
1. Featuring Amy from Fancy Pants the Blog
Amy’s acid-washed denim skirt should work with almost everything, even bohemian looks. She went that route with her floral slouchy jacket. Amy allowed the denim skirt and the jacket to pop by keeping everything else minimal and monochromatic. A pair of ankle boots would punctuate the look.
2. Featuring Savina from The Blossom Girls blog
How do you style distressed pencil skirts? Why don’t you try something like this look from Savina? Pair it up with whites for a clean, spring look. Savine teamed up her denim skirt with a white cropped sweater, white baseball hat and a pair of white sneakers. Sporty yet feminine. Nice contrast, isn’t it?
3. Featuring Emma from I Emma Fashion blog
If you like laid-back, school-girl outfits, copy this look from Emma. Wear your denim skirt with a loose tank top and then style with knee-high socks and sneakers or oxford shoes. It doesn’t get any easier than this.
4. Featuring Amanda from Listography 9 blog
Go feminine with your circle denim skirt and wear it with a collared top. Keep the look pared-down with simple ankle strap sandals. Amanda’s minimalist style works because she punched it up with key pieces (her necklace and hat). In this look, she veered away from the blue tones by adding black through her shoes and hat.
5. Featuring Dan from Misplaced-Mirth blog
Denim plus the striped trend? Yes, please. Also, if you own a denim circle skirt, find a halter top to go with it or something with a turtle neck like what Dan wore. It compliments the shape of the skirt. Wear ankle boots with it.
6. Featuring Ice Ice Wu from IceUce W Blog
Denim works so well with pastel tones. Pay homage to spring by wearing your denim skirt with a pastel-tone top. Something like the yellow collared top Ice Ice wore in this outfit will work great. For a sweet and girly look, wear mary jane sandals and then make it prettier with a pair of pastel socks.
