Be it faded and frayed, crisp and dark blue or pure white (like this awesome one Eva Chen wore last weekend), it’s time to dust off that denim miniskirt that’s been sitting in the back of your closet since 2005. For the first time in nearly a decade, the style seems refreshingly cool again, mostly because it’s being worn in totally new ways. No more poly-blend halter tops, shearling boots and terrycloth track hoodies!
Nowadays, the classic jean skirt works with everything from elegant silk button-downs to sailor shirts to lace-up heels; swap a few pieces, and it’ll go from casual weekend fare to dinner party-ready. To show you exactly how versatile it can be, I’ve compiled nine perfect outfits in the slideshow above using my favorite denim mini of the moment—a Citizens of Humanity style with a blasted-out summery wash, pictured below—although most any other option would work as all (bargain hunters: this H&M version is great, too!).
