Style buttoned up: The Denim Skirt

Recently added to my all-consuming and ever-growing skirt collection/ addiction (depending on your point of view….) is a high waisted, button through pale denim number which I have literally not removed from my little legs for seven days.

This shape, with the buttons that run down the front and the apron-style triangle silhouette is not only inherently 70s ( trend de jour, of course) but joyfully flattering. Why, the perfect combination.

I love my pale denim version, as it makes me think of never-ending highways and dusty roads, tarnished signs and whisky while a guitar strums in the back of an old battered car.

There are, however, plenty of printed cotton versions with similar buttons all over the high street which scream sunlit days and look just right with everything from your favourite t-shirt to a flirty blouse.

For a more authentic vibe, scour second hand shops for countless rails of suede and cord versions that scream out for tassled leather bags and a bit of Hendrix in the background.
