If you buy one thing for spring, make it something denim. And more specifically, make it a denim maxi skirt – one of 2023’s biggest fashion trends!
As the wardrobe must-have of the moment, you’re more than spoilt for choice; from asymmetric hems to front-split styles to different colours and washes. But as a curvy woman, your options are more limited than most. So if you’re curvy, go for a more figure hugging curvy silhouette denim skirt to accentuate your curves as opposed to hiding them. Because of the stiff structure of denim (lack of stretch), you’ll likely have a waist gap, meaning that your skirt fits snugly around your hips and thighs, but they gape around your waist and lower back. So make sure to choose high-waisted skirts to minimise this gap as much as possible. Or, alternatively you can use our quick and easy hack to completely remove the waist gap.
And, if you’re petite (like us) try a denim midi skirt instead of a maxi skirt to have the skirt compliment and not swamp your height. This means you won’t have to pay any additional tailoring cost too.
Okay so let’s get into how to wear this amazing fashion trend.. Remember keeping your look in proportion is extremely important. This means the skirt has to be fitted, not baggy, and make sure it doesn’t drape the floor. Not cute. Below are a few styling options for you.
Denim maxi skirt + white tee + cropped bomber jacket + ballet flats
Denim maxi skirt + tank top + slouchy bomber jacket + trainers
Denim maxi skirt + knee high boots + leather jacket
