Button-front skirts were a fave of fashionistas everywhere this summer, and the stylish ’70s-inspired piece has found its place in the sartorial lineup for fall too. Midi length is where it’s at this season as temps start to drop, with chic outerwear and ankle boots taking the place of the skirt’s go-to off-the-shoulder tops and gladiator sandals. From bright athleisure getups to elegant-meets-eclectic office outfits, this edition of Style Resolutions is all about how to make a denim midi the cornerstone of countless autumn ensembles.
How to Style a Denim Midi Skirt at the Office
Denim isn’t always an obvious choice for the office, but if your dress code is a little more on the lenient side (and if it’s not, save it for casual Friday), then it’s definitely time to bust this bad boy out. Skip the classic button-down and blazer and go for more laid-back, but no-less-polished separates instead, like a sporty striped sweater and oversized sweater jacket. Embroidered pumps give the look a snappy, boardroom-ready edge, while a bold geo necklace imparts a futuristic, tribal vibe.

How to Style a Denim Midi Skirt for a Night Out
We love how a totally unexpected piece — like this denim midi — can put a cool new twist on a classic night-out number. Here, we’ve paired it with gilded accessories to cut the casual factor, along with a simple, oh-so-of-the-moment high-neck top. A multicolor faux fur jacket is the outfit’s hero piece and practically screams partaaay.

How to Style a Denim Midi Skirt on the Weekend
A little color therapy does the soul some good. To make that understated skirt pop with color, bring out some bold, bright hues and flashy prints once the weekend hits. Sneakers, sweatshirts and oversized silhouettes keep things feeling cozy, while also appealing to that whole athleisure thang, and square-framed shades and a boxy bag feel oh-so trendy right.
