If you follow my blog then you know I have a “thing” for jean skirts. Currently I own two: the blue one I wore here and here and the white one that I wore here and here. I’m so in love with denim pencil skirts that I was surprised to read that the blue jean-loving author of Eat, Sleep, Denim doesn’t like them. (Let’s Discuss:The Playful Denim Skirt). I’m on a crusade to bring my favorite skirt trend to the world because if they go away I won’t be able to find any more, and I really want to buy some colorful versions of this practical yet sexy take on the classic jean skirt when I can squeeze it into my budget. So I’m doing it again. Here’s yet another outfit post featuring my newest obsession: the denim pencil skirt.
Denim Skirt and Black T-shirt
I usually wear my denim pencil skirt is with a simple black t-shirt. This fitted, long, scoop neck one from The Gap is my favorite. Normally I run around town in practical flats or low heels, but to make the look a bit sexier I’ll wear these crazy high, sexy ankle strap high-heel platform sandals. (Pencil skirts and ankle straps go together like cake with frosting; everything just gets yummier.) On the day I wore this outfit I dressed up the look a bit more with a bright scarf and simple black clutch.

I searched around the web for a few other ideas on how to wear denim pencil skirts. At this moment in late June there are only a couple posts out there. The author of Outfit Posts likes to wear hers with a cardigan and a polka dot blouse. You can see Eva Mendes wearing a super-tight version with a tie front cotton shirt here. (I think I might have gone up a size myself.) Meanwhile one of the authors of Two Shopper Moms takes a more conservative approach by pairing her denim skirt with a pretty lacy sweater.
Denim pencil skirts are a mix of casual, conservative and sexy. I love the look. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.
