How To Style: The Button-Front Denim Skirt

Oxford Shirt: Gap // Button Down Denim Skirt: Loft // Cross Body Bag: Zara // Gladiator Sandals: Asos.

 If you've learned anything from reading my blog posts there's likely one lesson drilled in your head. That is, you shouldn't spend so much on trends. I say it all the time; Splurge on the Basics, save on the trends. Unfortunately I don't always practice what I preach. I splurged on this trendy skirt, but to my defense, denim is a classic. Trend or not, I think this Button-Front skirt is timeless. There's a reason they brought it back.

Here's how I styled it :

THE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT: This skirt's met it's match. Clean and crisp, it keeps the look effortless and classy. 

THE CROSS BODY BAG: The secret to easy style is keep it simple, then liven it up with the accessories. This bright cross body, with it's fun tassel detailing, did just that. 

THE GLADIATOR SANDALS: Play with proportion! Take the short length of the skirt as a sign to add a tall shoe. Tall Brown Gladiator Sandals work perfectly with the length + detailing of the skirt. 

THE JEWELS: For jewelry, I went with my go to's. I wear my gold watch + J. Crew studs with everything. I like how they work together for a unique mix of metallics.
