While we’ve been having some cooler weather recently in NC, it seems like a lot of the country is still in a freakin’ heatwave. But whether you’re starting to get those fall temps or you’re still in the midst of summer, I like to think jean skirts are a great wardrobe staple.
It’s funny, when did jean skirts come back in style? I don’t know, but don’t really care, because I love them ha. But I couldn’t help but laugh when one of my friends texted me the other day relaying that she was in a group text and all these girls were like, “So what’s the deal with jean skirts now? Apparently that is a new thing?” Well, I for one am happy it’s a trend that has come back because I’ve been practically living in mine.
They are a great item because it is easy to just throw on (obviously) and can be styled a lot of different ways. Here, I just have it paired with sneakers and a cute crop top for during the summer days. At night, it’s easy to change out the sneakers for a pair of wedges, or even a dressier sandal, and then opt for a nicer top. During the fall though, I can swap my crop out for a knit sweater (think either cropped or loosely tucked in) and a pair of booties. I mean, as much as I love my high waisted shorts, it’s nice to have another casual alternative that seems a tad dressier.
I love that so many trends that were popular in the past are now coming back in style (ahem, overalls). It’s just fun to have a seemingly simple item like a jean skirt that can be worn while running errands, out to brunch, even out to date night! I think having these “simple” pieces in your closet is key. More and more I’m discovering that the things I wear the most are what people may deem as more “plain/boring” items…but honestly those are usually the most versatile and end up being the most fun!
