Here’s a nice long pencil skirt with a generous slit so that you can actually walk in it.
A high-waisted number with really clean lines.
I like the flowiness of this skirt, and also that it’s such a good washed-out grey.
Here’s a 100% cotton skirt, for those of you who can’t abide stretch.
This one is more feminine than most denim skirts, and is nicely voluminous.
A white denim skirt from Universal Standard, which means is comes in just about every size imaginable.
The asymmetric business here is a cool—and still pretty subtle—touch.
Just a pencil skirt in a nice clean wash.
I like the raw hem on this one.
I like the exposed buttons here.
This A line skirt is very nearly perfect, and I dig the slightly lower waistline.
Another nice A-line skirt with cute patch pockets.
Here’s the most polished one of the bunch.
I share Kim’s weakness for a good denim skirt. Some great options here.
On the other hand, I am horrified by those brown square-toed kitten heel slides. EEEEKK.
Every year I try to find a good one. And they’re hard to find. At 5’1″ I get overwhelmed by long skirts. I started looking early this year and found a short one at Old Navy that fit perfectly. I will wear it constantly.
I love a good denim skirt! But I end up not wearing them as much as I think I will. You'[ve found a gorgeous selection!
That gored skirt…I already own a denim skirt…definitely don’t need ano -crap, too late, I ordered it.
I feel like if I cut up the inside-leg seams of a pair of jeans in 1975, and flapped the front over and sewed it up on a home ec sewing machine to make a skirt, and then embroidered (badly) a polka-dotted mushroom on one of the back pockets, then I ought to skip the trend this time around.
I’m not a big denim skirt fan (and hardly ever wear skirts of any type) but would seriously consider the flouncier one if I were tall enough.
How did so many of these manage crawl out of 1998 and survive in hiding until today?
The one that looks the most flattering (to me) is the white denim from Universal Standard. I shy away from skirts in general because I have no waistline, but the Universal Standard is certainly tempting. I can see myself wearing it with a popover and my cork Kork-ease platforms. Since I’m still not going out to restaurants I can’t imagine WHERE I would wear that outfit, but still…
I guess I am getting spoiled – when I see a photo styled to try to get me to want what’s in it, I expect to be told about the shoes, too. Say for example, the ones with the A-line bloomies skirt. Those are cute. I probably wouldn’t actually buuuuy them, but, it would be nice to know what they were. Just saying. (This is not aimed at you, Kim, just to be clear. Just *general* whining.) … … … … I like the beat up looking, longer ones, especially the used-to-be black denim one with the wonky hem. That looks like fun. Also the blue sort of trumpet-y/tulip-y one? Very nice.
Can you put in the link for the A line Patch pockets
Does anyone else find that a denim skirt with the front fly detail has an annoying tendency to bulge up over the fly and then continue to ride up as you walk? I’ve tried a few and alway have this problem, I have to keep tugging it down. I’d love to find one that doesn’t do this.
Glad I’m not the only one who has noticed this. I also have a problem with denim skirts rotating around, so that the back pockets wind up in the front. Never seems to happen with any other kind of skirt. Odd.
Yes! That is another problem I’ve found with them.
Sue — I haven’t found one yet that doesn’t do this as I walk. I like the concept of a classic denim skirt, but it doesn’t work for me IRL.
Yes. I never thought of it as having to do with the front fly, as much as with me having an hourglass figure with hips that push it up as I walk. But maybe that’s the problem. I love my denim skirt that looks like the A-line one, but I don’t wear it when I have to walk far.
Liz, I did have a denim skirt years ago from Banana Republic that wasn’t cut like a ‘jeans skirt’, it was a-line with a standard waistband and it was absolutely fine. That’s why I think it’s something to do with the fly.
Had these in the ’90s. No going back for me!
