Get The Look:: Distressed Denim Skirt

Hey ladies! It’s Cristina from Fuji Files here, and I thought it’d be fun to continue our discussion of denim pieces that got a lot of love in high school (did you see the jean jacket post?). This week, I bring you the denim skirt! This rendition is all grown up in a ladylike pencil silhouette with an unexpected edge: a distressed denim finish.
I often have a hang-up paying good money for clothing with holes in them, I think it’s because I can hear my parents in my head saying “you paid for that ripped skirt??” so I highly recommend finding a piece in your closet that doesn’t get much use and distressing it yourself! There are tons of great tutorials for creating just the right rip, and that way you can control how much or how little you distress your look.

I can see this piece becoming a go-to this summer as the dressed up version of the ubiquitous cut-off  shorts, what do you think?
