I’m a sucker for new trends.
When Barbiecore was blowing up on TikTok, I was all over it. And when cargo pants and Samba sneakers became popular, you’d better believe I added a few pieces to my closet. And right now, denim maxi skirts are the new trending piece that’s making waves on TikTok, on the runway and — you guessed it — in my very own closet.
Denim Maxi Skirts Are Making Waves: 3 Ways I’m Wearing Them
I love trying trends and adapting them to my everyday style, and I have to say that the denim-maxi-skirt trend is one that’s approachable, so fun to wear, and IMO, wayyyy more fun (and more comfy) than jeans.
And what I love most about this trend is that Amy is on board with it too. She recently styled up her own denim midi skirt several ways as well.
Gahh, I seriously just love this trend so much, and there are several foolproof ways you can wear them. Let’s get into it!
Shop Denim Maxi Skirts
1. Wear A Denim Maxi Skirt With A Vibrant, Springy Sweater
This spring is all about color. Vibrant citrus tones like tangerine and lemon. Really pretty pool-float colors that are reminiscent of the beach and pretty turquoise stones. And that perfect orange-red that I’m so in love with.
Sweaters in beautiful spring colors pair perfectly with a maxi skirt too, and I absolutely love the yellow sweater I recently picked up from Anthropologie because it has a hand-knitted feel to it. Plus, the citrus-yellow color is perfection with the maxi skirt’s shade of blue.
2. Denim On Denim Makes Everything Look Cool
Just in case you were wondering, “double denim,” or denim-on-denim, looks are totally a thing this spring too. The first time I rocked a double-denim look was last year during NYFW. I love the look of a full-on, all-denim outfit, and when I tried it with my maxi skirt, I knew it was a total winner too.
I think the key to achieving cute denim-on-denim outfits is to add a pop of color within your accessories. Think: brightly colored bags, a great pair of colorful heels, or statement sunnies to set it off. I personally opted for one of my favorite designer bags, which is an absolute showstopping yellow YSL bag (here’s a similar crossbody from Tory Burch).
3. Spice Up A Denim Maxi Skirt With a Corset
If you’re looking to make a statement the next time you head out for date night, then you need to wear your denim maxi skirt with a corset. Let me tell you all it is hot, hot, hot, and I absolutely love how corsets accentuate curves. And if you aren’t a curvaceous babe like me, they create the most pretty hourglass shapes even on people with straighter figures. These two pieces paired together are an incredible combo, and are exactly what I want to wear for a night out.
TBH, I really love how easy styling denim maxi skirts are! The fact that they work well with with a variety of things in my closet makes it an absolute win for me. And if I’m being totally real, I’d rather wear a maxi denim skirt than jeans! Hot take, I know, but it’s 100% accurate for me.
Happy spring, y’all!
