These 6 Outfits Show a Denim Skirt Is One of the Most Versatile Things to Style

Although summer may be coming to an end, autumn brings with it the opportunity to bring many of the pieces we’d relegated to the backs of our wardrobes to the forefront. This includes wool, velvet and, of course, denim.

While we never bid goodbye to our jeans (this is Britain, after all), we still find ourselves making an unconscious shift from the fabric during the summer months. Now, though, we plan on making up for lost time—starting with denim skirts.
