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.

    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!).

    I think you can totally wear denim skirts – especially when you style them like this!

    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!

    I can't think of ever owning a denim skirt, but if you're gonna wear it like this, I think you're golden.

    I LOVE denim skirts, I wear them all the time (I have several) I am wearing a dressy one today, I have a gray one and two other more casual ones.  They go with everything! GO for it!!!! Maybe you should do a segment on how to dress up and dress down a denim skirt!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    Audrey, I looove your blog!  I've been learning how to "dress cuter" and have been searching the internet for inspiration.  Your blog is adorable – I just read the entire thing!  Love your remix posts – they are so helpful for teaching me how to buy a few key pieces.  Thank you! 🙂

    You don't have to limit your self from wearing denim skirt as long as you wear it in a decent way. And as much as I can see, you dress up very lovely.
