Can I still wear denim skirts?

Top: Lace Affair  |  Sweater: Old Navy  |  Belt: H&M  |  Skirt: thrifted (gift)
Tights: Old Navy  |  Boots: Dolce Vita via Macy's (gift)

My friend thrifted this skirt, but since it didn't fit her she gave it to me.  The last time I wore a denim skirt was some 9 or 10 years ago, in college.  Do people still wear these things??  This skirt has been shuffled back and forth between my donate pile and my closet since August because I wasn't sure if the cool kids still wore denim skirts.  However, when I saw this pin I stopped worrying about whether or not denim skirts were still cool and immediately dug the skirt out of the donate pile and decided it was a keeper.  Pinterest strikes again.

  2. Adore this!  Especially the lace top--it's absolutely gorgeous.  With the tights and cardigan, it's perfect for early spring.  (And the skirt is pretty adorable too--great shape and length!).

  5. Great outfit! I would absolutely wear the entire thing. You have quickly become one of my favorite fashion bloggers mainly because your outfits are so wearable. I just started wearing my denim skirt again as well, but it's too big, so time to shop for a new one!

  13. I like it - I think the dark denim and straight fit is key... and you could make so many cute summery outfits with it too. Making me wish mine still fit!

  19. I have a denim skirt that I love, it's the perfect mix of dressy & casual. Slightly nicer than skinny jeans. I think you should hang on to this one.

  20. I love the juxtaposition of the lacy shirt with the denim...perfection! I have a straight, denim skirt that I love.  Sydney from the Daybook wears them all the time, so it must be ok, right? =)

    There's your "yes" :)  I'm dying to purchase this skirt, glad that denim is kinda making its 70s-is-so-in comeback...it just looks so cute!!!  Love your crocheted top with the denim too, it's a fab style choice.

    Love this top! I am not normally drawn to anything lace or that look in a store by itself, but I'm going to rethink that now. That top looks so cute and I love the denim skirt here.

  28. I have the same question about denim skirts. I have two - one that is a little more country  - and lately I've stayed away from them. Still, I think this is a great look on you. I say keep the skirt and wear it if you are feeling it. - Katy

  29. I love that lacey top!  I think that denim skirts are perfectly fine, as long as they're styled well.  I've been searching for a good one myself lately.
