What shoes should I wear with a denim skirt?
A little bit retro and a throwback to our younger days, the denim skirt is perfect for taking us through the summer without a care in the world. Firmly in step with the denim trend, it’s the mainstay of casual feminine style throughout this summer. In 2019, we predict a denim-on-denim look, with denim shirts tucked into denim skirts, accessorized with creole hoop earrings. However, to keep it elegant and classy, follow our denim skirt guide to find out which shoes to wear with it.
For inspiration, there’s nothing like tiptoeing back in time to the dressing rooms of our sixties heroines. Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, France Gall and Françoise Hardy all established the denim skirt as an iconic symbol of sixties fashion. The heavy denim fabric comes in a whole host of designs: the miniskirt, the skater skirt, the A-line skirt and the short skirt, which adds a lightness of form and structure for a summer of sleek silhouettes. Choose from asymmetric, buttoned, ripped or laced. Our favorite styles are tie-dye, faded, almost white bleach wash, or alternatively, embellished designs with sewn-on badges or patchwork. Combine with a pair of Vanessa Wu flat sandals, cut-out or leopard-print ankle boots or neo-biker boots.
"The denim skirt also makes a striking and bold statement when worn in a longer cut. A high-waisted design, midi cut, or a pencil skirt with front slit, all work beautifully to create a chic office style this summer. Team with a pair of Vanessa Wu nude slingbacks, strappy ballerinas or espadrille wedges and you’ll be sure to turn heads".
With its remarkable versatility and appeal, the denim skirt combines youth and cool in a timeless design that continues to influence our summer style. Retro, gypsy, rock or sporty, it ultimately unites all women around a widely accepted fashion statement - and in summer, the denim skirt really brings this home.
