You know I’ve never been much of a denim skirt fan24. In all my years, I honestly cannot remember the last time I owned one; if I ever did. I don’t quite know what my aversion to them has been for so long. But I’m glad I got over whatever was stopping me from wearing them. So, to explain why I’m telling you this and how this ties into the above outfit.
Read on below.
I was shopping in Zara for something completely different. I think I was grabbing something for a different shoot. While I’m walking through the busy store, two things hit me at the same time. The first is this lightly striped oversized linen shirt hanging off a stand is actually really cute. The second thought was how it would look amazing half tucked into a denim skirt. I have no idea what sparked this thought, or why it even popped into my head, but I knew I had to try it out. But Zara doesn’t really do denim skirts, so off I go to H&M who can always be trusted to have some good ones on sale.
So, if you’d like to wear this outfit, here are some tips;
Rule 1: Make sure your shirt is long enough and that the side is cut open so you can tuck it into your skirt.
Rule 2: Go for a shorter length denim skirt, and one that has an A-line skirt. It shouldn’t sling to your legs otherwise the shirt underneath won’t look great.
Rule 3: If you’re going to use your cross-body bag as a waist bag, make sure you choose one with adjustable straps and loop the strap once under your flap. This will only work for flap-style bags.
Rule 4: The outfit is very casual, so go for casual shoes to match. I went for heeled espadrilles, which are great if you don’t want to wear flats, but still want your legs to have the nice shape from wearing heels.
