Denim is a staple is everyone’s wardrobe and a favourite too. None of us can really imagine our wardrobe without atleast one piece of denim in it. Be it our dark jeans or the trendy ripped ones, a girl is most comfortable in her denim. And why shouldn’t she? It is the most versatile piece of fabric that can be styled with almost anything.
History of the Denim Skirt
One of the latest additions to the denim family is the denim skirt. It has quickly risen to popularity due to the ease of a skirt married with the versatility of the denim fabric. So how did the denim skirt come into being in our fashion worlds? Let’s go back in history to learn a little! 😉
The denim pants were in women’s fashion since the 1940s. But the idea of a denim skirt first appeared in the 1960s. The hippies came up with the idea to recycle old denim jeans into long denim skirts. These were made to look just like the denim jeans with the front fly, belt loops, pockets and other details in place. With time, the denim skirt changed from long to short and was revamped with a lot of details such as fringes, lace, etc.
Rise in popularity:
The denim skirt has been around since the 1970s, after it hit the fashion trend for the first time. It has been revamped in several ways and has consistently been a part of the fashion industry. While the 70s showcased a long length denim skirt, the 80s called for a bedazzled version. In the 90s, a light wash mini denim skirt was a huge rage. There have also been other versions of the denim skirt that have been popular like the denim pencil skirt, A-line denim skirt, etc.
In the current times, the denim skirt has somewhat achieved the status of a wardrobe staple rather than a trendy piece of clothing.
There are a lot of styles you can choose your denim skirt from. Let’s have a look at the most popular ones.
This one is just a simple denim skirt with some button detailing on the front. It is a great option to style with anything in your wardrobe.
The denim skirt hem is often distressed or frayed to achieve a rugged,unkempt look. This is different from your regular distressed denim as it only has the ends cut up.
