The Perfect White Skirt (And Why It’s An Upgrade For Me)

I received a lot of requests for a white denim skirt for the next #shopyourclosetseries; well, ask and you shall receive.  I do have a traditional, white, denim mini skirt.  It has a raw, cut-off bottom and I like it but it’s a bit…how do you say–youthful.  I actually had the same exact same style of skirt in high school, which makes a 34 year old wonder, you know?  And just so you know, I’m in the camp that you should wear whatever makes you feel good and I’m certainly not anti-denim mini skirt, but when I saw this particular skirt from Everlane, I thought, ok, yes, that’s what I need to wear.  It’s chic–not just because it’s longer (and it IS longer) but because it’s high-waisted, slightly a-line and looks tailored.  And guess what, if you’re 14 or 54 you can wear this skirt.

It’s made of cotton twill, which is a lot like a denim (which is also the same material that my favorite pants, Everlane’s wide-leg crops are made of), but it looks slightly dressier.  I realize that not every office job would allow you to wear a skirt like this, but with the casualization of the workplace (and the American wardrobe), this skirt COULD be totally office appropriate this spring.  When I worked in finance a decade ago, I couldn’t wear this skirt to the office, however, with the way business casual has evolved, I bet you I could wear this to the office on a summer Friday with a silk button down and pointy toe flats.  I worked in fashion for six years after that and this skirt would be a staple for my office then–I’d wear it just like this or with flat sandals and a striped tee.  Check out my IG stories today as it was the featured item in this week’s #shopyourclosetseries and it will be on the blog next week!  (For length references, I’m 5’9″–Everlane’s website is helpful, too.)

  1. Absolutely been loving the commentary you give in your instagram videos… just those little tibits like proportion of blazer to skirt helps me even if I’ll not be wearing a white denim skirt anytime soon. Lol
