A good pair of jeans might be our go-to denim piece all year round but the hot sticky days of summer demand something more easy going and airy. Keeping in tune with the recent takeover of fashion by the ’70s, the denim skirt is one such iteration that provides the casual-cool vibe of denim without compromising on the comfort factor.
You may be surprised to find that this swingy version of denim is just about as versatile as your go-to skinnies. You could wear it virtually with anything from a cropped knit to a classic striped tee. Edgy, preppy or polished whatever be your personal style statement, the new batch of bottoms in the market have something for every taste:
