Classic Fabric With a Modern Twist
Women have been wearing denim since the 1940s when they started working in factories during World War II. In the 1960s, women began experimenting with denim by cutting the inseams and adding panels to create women's denim skirts.
These early jean skirts were maxi skirts, often embellished with embroidery, beads, and panels of various fabrics. Fashion designers took notice in the 1970s, and the look took off from there, mostly in the form of long denim skirts and denim midi skirts. It was not until the 1980s that denim skirts and mini skirts—two styles born in the 60s—came together to create a blank slate that inspired embellishments from fraying and rivets to hand-painting and leather.
Denim skirts fell out of fashion in the late 1980s as 90s grunge hit the cultural scene, but they were not gone for long. Denim mini skirts reemerged in the late 90s and have continued to evolve. Today, you are just as likely to see someone wearing a dark wash denim pencil skirt with a blazer at the office as you are to see her rocking a stone wash, button-fly, distressed denim mini skirt for a fun night out on the town.
A Denim Skirt for Every Occasion
Denim is one of the most comfortable fabrics you can wear, and with so many styles and colors to choose from, you can find a denim skirt that is right for almost anything. Choose a white or dark wash that falls below the knee for work outfits. Look to familiar names, like Lucky Brand and Abercrombie & Fitch, for casual styles with front and back pockets so that you can travel light while you are out and about. Change up your silhouette with an A-line, flare, or hi-lo skirt or an asymmetrical hem. Have fun with buttons, embroidery, and other design details to make your denim skirt one-of-a-kind.
