How are trends made? Sometimes, the staunchest authorities in fashion recommend what to buy and the public blindly follow, even if the recommendation is occasionally on the dubious side. But in most cases, the piece is so pretty, so covet-worthy, that the public instigates the massive trend with very little nudge from the upper echelons of fashion. Such is the case for the “it” skirt this season: the denim skirt.
It’s not just your average denim skirt. This one has one tell-tale detail – buttons adorning its front.
We’re not sure who wore it first but it definitely caused a ripple. British TV presenter, Alexa Chung, even came up with this design for her collaboration with AG and the denim skirt has since sold out in most stores.
If you don’t own one yet, perhaps these stylish bloggers and celebrities will convince you to go get one:
1. This skirt is perfect for a laid-back look
A light sweater with an A-line button front denim skirt just like Ella’s ensemble in this look – this could turn out to be your go-to outfit this season!
2. It has a versatile charm to it
Whether you are aiming for a casual look or more polished flair, this denim skirt will not fail you. Take a look at Alice’s take on the denim skirt trend. She wore it with a classic button down shirt and a pair of low-heeled pumps for a tasteful and stylish day time outfit.
3. It’s a great piece for layering
You can layer a cropped jacket over it for a perfect spring look, just like Helena’s ensemble here.
4. It looks so perfect with white
Take the white trend from last year and mix it with this skirt. The result is a fabulous, clean, fresh and spring-worthy look, just like Tonya’s outfit.
5. It is understated enough for you to add statement pieces
Are you a fan of statement pieces? This skirt is casual and understated enough for you to mix it with louder pieces without going over the top. Case in point: Estefania’s outfit.
6. Now is a great time for you to experiment with double denim looks
We already featured Kacie in our favorite skirt looks for March. What can we say? We’re still smitten with her double denim look!
7. You can still pair it up with tights
If you’re not ready to let go of your tights just yet, it can still work with your A-line denim skirt. Take a cue from blogger Kim.
8. A pair of tall boots would create a statement outfit
