Styling a Vintage Denim Skirt Three Ways

When you think of a denim skirt what do you think of? Typically I would think of a denim, above knee length skirt. Those short, denim skirt styles are very cute though not my preferred skirt length most of the time.

This thrifted vintage skirt sits mid calf, is highwaisted, has the most adorable pleating details and is my ideal denim skirt. This skirt is also just as versatile as any pair of jeans! Let me show you the three ways I love to style this beauty from my wardrobe.

This skirt has a bit of southwest vibe to it with the pleats, but I like to make it a little boho chic by pairing it with a scarf worn like a head band and a beaded corset top. This is one of my absolute favourite summer looks! The skirt and top were from the Instagram shop: @whitetigervintage and the scarf I thrifted a long time ago!

In this photo I've paired this skirt with this incredible vintage shirt which used to belong to my Dad, he wore it back in the 1970's. Can you spot the awesome windmills on the shirt? This look needed a hat and this baseball cap made the outfit chic and cool in a sporty kind of way. This skirt and belt were purchased from the Instagram shop: @whitetigervintage, and the hat was purchased from The Canadian Trail Running Co: @canadiantrailrunningco .

The collar and print on this vintage 70's shirt is amazing and I love the contrast with this 90's vintage shirt.

For a chic, 90's vibe, I paired this skirt with a vintage belt and the cutest 90's hat. This cream camisole pairs perfect with the bits of white which come through the fabric of the denim skirt, and the belt breaks up the two parts of the look. This whole outfit is second hand except for the camisole which was from .

One of my favourite things to do when styling is to find unique ways to wear my vintage finds. Which of these looks was your favourite and how would you style this denim skirt?
