Trends come and go but classic pieces are forever! Denim skirts surpass the test of time because of their stylish silhouettes and versatility when it comes to styling. They can either be dressed up for polished occasions or kept laidback for a quick errand. No matter what your fashion style is, a denim skirt can be paired to complement your personality!
If you are looking for eye-catching outfit ideas for this closet staple, we've rounded up some chic OOTD formulas that can make you stand out in every Instagram post.
15 Versatile Denim Skirt Outfit Combinations
1. Denim maxi skirt with high slit + white puff sleeve crop top + nude heels
This combination is perfect for a night out on the town! A high slit on a denim maxi skirt shows a little skin without being too revealing. Pair that with a feminine white crop top for an elegant touch while baring your midriff. If you are worried the skirt might drown out your legs, wear a pair of nude pumps to make them look longer! We love how Janeena Chan tied her sweater around her top to add a bit of street edge to the look.
2. A-line denim skirt + bikini top + flip flops
Rei Germar is making a case for a seaside denim OOTD! Keeping the denim skirt suitable for hot weather, she stuck to a mid-thigh length in an A-line silhouette with dainty floral accents. When combined with a nude bikini top, you've got a look that's ready to take a dip anytime. What’s amazing about this combo is that you can also wear this out of the beach, especially when the weather's warm.
3. Dark denim skirt + matching denim jacket + white tank top
Want an elevated look for a full day out? This one is easy to cop! Julia Barretto donned a denim jacket and a matching skirt with a white V-neck tank top underneath. She accessorized the look with large semi-transparent sunnies, too!
4. High waist denim skirt + white collared tee
You can never go wrong with this classic denim skirt combo! If you are running a quick errand or just want a no fuss OOTD, grab a white collared tee and a high waisted denim skirt just like YouTuber Ashley (AKA bestdressed). We love the slight academia vibe of this no-brainer formula.
5. Button-down denim midi skirt + statement dress + peekaboo heels
Who would’ve thought you could use your button-down maxi skirt to make a statement over a long dress? Of course, style icon Heart Evangelista is to blame for this clever trick! Like her, you can wear a halter printed dress with matching peekaboo heels. On top of your long frock, style a dark denim skirt with only the first button fastened! Because the rest of the skirt is open, it gives a peek of the dress’ print.
6. Paper bag denim skirt + long-sleeved shirt + white pointed heels
Mikka Padua is proof that a long denim skirt can be made effortlessly elegant. Rock it in a blue monochrome outfit that elongates the body. White pointy heels stand out because they break the singular color story from your ankles up. The long-sleeved shirt is tucked inside the paper bag skirt to emphasize the waist and make it appear slimmer. Don’t forget the statement bag for a splash of drama.
7. Distressed denim skirt + chunky belt + long sleeve top + casual sneakers
Whether you are eating lunch out with your barkada or spending time with your family, look simple and sleek with this OOTD combo! Elisse Joson makes her statement belt pop over her ripped denim skirt and muted long sleeve top. With that, keep everything coordinated with a cohesive color palette, for instance Elisse favors blush pink for her sneakers and mini bag.
8. Denim mini skirt + white top + black blazer
Here’s a smart casual look you can wear around the city or in your office! Evolve that denim skirt and white shirt combo by throwing on a dark blazer to keep it sophisticated and stylish! The trick here is to accessorize well with layered necklaces, different rings, and the appropriate shades. YouTube star Emma Hill brought out her white sneakers to match the top but you can wear this with heels, slip-ons, or mules depending on your personal style.
9. Wrap denim skirt + striped button-up + neck scarf
If you’re looking for a more elaborate ensemble for a dressy event, Laureen Uy has the perfect outfit combo you should try. She styled a button-down as an off shoulder top by pulling the neckline and sleeves down and tucked it into her wrap-around denim skirt. Her neck scarf completes the look and makes her shoulders look less bare. You can definitely make your personality run wild with this OOTD!
10. Distressed denim skirt + white tank top + leopard print sneakers
For those warmer days when you have “nothing to wear,” here’s a breezy denim skirt formula from Maggie Wilson! Take out that white tank top from your closet and pair it with a distressed denim mini skirt to add some texture. Finally, your statement sneakers will be put to use because this OOTD needs it. Throw in some large sunglasses and a matching bag and you're ready to go!
11. Fringed denim skirt + long sleeve white blouse
Simple and straightforward, bring out that white long sleeve blouse and pair it with a frayed hem denim skirt. This combo is perfect to show your feminine side without too much fuss! Just like Catriona Gray, you can wear your hair down for a casual feel.
12. Distressed denim mini skirt + one-piece swimsuit
A while ago, we gave you a summer OOTD for your bikini tops. This time, bring out those one-piece swimsuits and match it with a distressed denim mini skirt! Feel free to use those denim skirts as beach cover ups for when you are longing on the shore. When you want to go for a swim, just slip them right off! Elisse owns a matching blue one-piece and accessorized with a white Prada bucket hat and a pearl necklace to create a resort-ready outfit.
13. Green button-down denim skirt + white halter top
Denim does not always have to be blue! Look fresh with a colored denim button-down skirt—in this case Maureen Wroblewitz is wearing olive green. Then slip into a white halter sleeveless top especially if it is a sunny day.
14. Distressed mini denim skirt + white T-shirt + denim jacket + pink heels and light blue socks
Denim on denim is not a crime if you pair it well! Janina Vela opts for a light wash denim jacket and a distressed denim mini skirt for her fresh and fun ‘fit. Break the blue hues with a white tee underneath. Add some personality to the look with socks of a similar blue worn with ankle strap heels—an awesome idea to stay comfortable in cold places while still flaunting your stilettos.
15. Distressed wrap denim skirt + button-down + sneakers + handbag
We love how blogger Jules Sarinana styled a simple white button-down into a hubadera top that’s perfect when it’s hot and humid outside. Offset the sexiness of your outfit with a cool pair of chunky sneaks!
