The 90’s called and they want their denim back!
I recall waaayyy back in the 90’s, the era of my misspent teenage youth and numerous fashion fails that I did in fact own a denim pencil skirt.
And you know what they say in fashion….. everything old is new again! If my memory serves me correctly I believe my not quite acid wash denim skirt was purchased at Big W and my sister also bought one!
So you can only imagine my excitement at seeing copious amounts of denim skirts in stores in all washes and styles. Denim Heaven I say!
Today I’m sharing 5 super easy looks using a cute little denim pencil skirt I found at Valley Girl. I paid $24.95 for this one two weeks ago and it’s already reduced to $14.95 (grrrrr!) so if you head out to look for it check the sale racks.
All the accessories – shoes – tops – jackets etc are items I already had in my wardrobe. Some are recent purchases and some are old favourites so remember to always shop your own closet first….. you never know what’s hiding in there!

This is a look I put together recently using black jeans ( see it here ) and I just love it with the skirt also! Most of us have a striped tee and casual jacket in our wardrobes, add a pair of lace-up’s and your outfit is complete! I couldn’t live without these lace-up’s from Best & Less, similar styles are available at Big W and Target ranging from $10 – $15!
Number 2 –
Another simple casual look using a plaid shirt I picked up on sale at K-mart. On my many recent & regular trips to K-mart I have seen plaid shirts for $17 in a variety of colours.
Number 3 –
I’m a big fan of polka dots! This shirt is an old favourite and for a relaxed look I’ve added a K-mart denim shirt tied at the waist. I think this look would also work really well with a slogan tee ( another fav of mine! ). And those super cute lace – up flats are from Valley Girl this week for $29.95.
Number 4 –
Oh stop it!
I love me a little DD or as I recently discovered this look is also known as the Canadian Tuxedo haha! To dress up the outfit I’ve added nude block heels and a funky clutch…. I’m also trying to embrace the half – tuck thing!
Number 5 –
I’m also a really big lover of the long line cardigan. I like having something that falls over the pencil skirt and hides my legs a bit more. For the record my legs really are THAT white, no it’s not a winter thing they are just really really white!
Here are a few more fabulous denim skirts to get you inspired for the impending spring / summer weather.
Will you dare to wear denim this spring / summer!
