I’ve always loved a good denim skirt, but I’ve found that, as I’ve aged, my requirements for a jean skirt have changed. A skimpy mini is of limited use in my life, and flippy a-lines no longer fit with my personal style. Know what I mean?
That doesn’t mean I’ve given up on denim skirts altogether. But, I have become much more selective. I need something with enough length to be appropriate for a casual office, but not so much as to be dowdy. Plus, with fall rapidly approaching, I’m most interested in a skirt that will look just as fabulous with a chunky sweater and boots as with a slim tank and slides. If you’re on the same denim skirt wavelength, read on… I’ve found five skirts that are perfect fits!
This split-front skirt feels like a more refined version of a skirt I practically lived in all through grad school. I’d feel perfectly comfortable wearing this to a casual workplace, but wouldn’t shy away from dressing it down for the weekend. It has the kind of high-end style and versatility I’ve come to expect from the 3x1 label.

While I admire Alexa Chung’s personal style, it’s not usually my cup of tea. But, I do love the cool girl vibe of this button front midi skirt. It feels like vintage London, and would look amazing with layered sweaters and boots this fall.

For ultra-casual days, a shredded denim look is just right. Not only do I love the extra-bleached, distressed wash on this Rag&Bone skirt, I love the sale price.

Similar to the Alexa Chung skirt above, this button front skirt from French staple label A.P.C. has a fun vintage vibe. But, the shorter length and lighter weight denim construction make it a little more versatile for both summer and fall.

The front patch pockets and frayed hem make this classic pencil skirt shape feel a little less mumsy than your standard denim pencil. Add a blazer for a wear to work look appropriate for casual offices. A spare silk tank would create an ensemble worthy of summer cocktails.
