Remember back in, like, 2004 when everyone from the cast of Laguna Beach to the president of your sorority made jean skirts and Uggs a “stylish” combination.
Shudder Luckily, in 2018, there are a number of infinitely more fashionable ways to style this summer staple. Here are six of our faves.
WITH A BUTTON-DOWN AND EMBELLISHED SANDALSThe top says business casual while the shoes say pool party casual. (And the jacket draped over your shoulder means you can wear it well into September.)
WITH AN OFF-THE-SHOULDER TOP AND MULESTo keep a voluminous top from overwhelming your figure, follow Janee Barbre’s lead and tuck it into your skirt to define your waist.
WITH A T-SHIRT AND LACE-UP SANDALSIn addition to proving that black and brown do, in fact, go together, this look showcases the power of a French tuck.
WITH A MOTO JACKET AND ANKLE BOOTSHow to wear a jean skirt in the fall 101: Pair it with a zipper-laden moto jacket and low booties, both of which create a cool, edgy contrast with a run-of-the-mill denim skirt.
WITH AN OVERSIZE KNIT AND BALLET FLATSOr, you could combine a French tuck and a fall-ready sweater into this beauty, which would look as amazing with a blue jean skirt as it does with white denim.
WITH A STATEMENT-SLEEVE TOP AND SLIDESWant a more dressed-up take? Instead of a T-shirt or casual sweater, opt for a statement blouse (we love a ruffled sleeve) and swap out this lovely lady’s flat slides with a chunky block-heel sandal.
