The Fierce and the Freaky… Denim Skirts

Also, please avoid any acid-wash or faded denim unless you want to look like you got in a fight with a bottle of Clorox.

This look offers a more classy version of denim, and dresses up the look. It resembles the traditional pencil skirt, and you can even wear it to work on casual Fridays!

We hope this puts a stop to these childish shenanigans. Remember, dress you’re age, not you’re shoe size.
