Reinventing the “ugly” 90’s DENIM SKIRT

I remember when my dad bought me my first denim piece in the early 90’s – a skirt overall that I used to wear with a cashmere-like blouse and some very fancy oversized beads. At that time, I was probably the only child to wear denim in my post-soviet countryside preschool and I can’t even describe you how happy it made me. It was like being a small version of Iris Apfel without even knowing who she was.

One will always relate the 90’s to an iconic piece of denim, whether it is a pair of 501 classic Levis or an A-line midi skirt. Lately, I noticed the denim skirt being revived on the catwalk and adopted as a new IT garment by A-list celebrities like Olivia Palermo & Co. So I decided to dive into my very own exploration of the denim skirt and discover some legit ways to reinvent its “ugliness”. The math is simple. I kept it really basic and effortless with a pale blue sleeveless cotton shirt, neutral sandals and statements earrings. You can always put the accent on the lips, right?
