How to Style Denim Skirts for Fall

There’s so much to love about fall. From the crisp air and the changing leaves to the official start of sweater weather and seasonal movie marathons, there are endless reasons that autumn is such a popular time of year. While getting ready for the season's magic might involve booking a trip to a local apple orchard or planning a visit to the pumpkin patch, one great way to get ready for the new season is by preparing to switch out your wardrobe (sorry, swimsuits, it's nothing personal!). As you start to think ahead to the fall looks you can’t wait to wear, and how you want to organize your closet as seasons change, denim skirts might be top of mind.

When it comes to the best women's skirts for autumn, denim skirts are high on the list. That’s because denim is stylish and on-trend while also being a practical fabric for the changing weather. It offers just the right amount of added warmth as you start to feel a chill in the air. Read on for tips on how to style your denim skirts as you head into the season.

With a Cashmere Cardigan

The fall is all about layers. As we say goodbye (for now!) to the days of breezy tanks and say hello to cute and comfy layered looks, silky-soft cashmere cardigans for women are ready to have their moment in the spotlight.

For a fall look that’s as flattering as it is comfortable, layer a cashmere cardigan sweater over a plain white tee or even over another sweater, like a fitted cotton crewneck sweater, and rock a pull-on denim pencil skirt on the bottom. Go with a pencil skirt in deep indigo denim with a bit of stretch that falls right above the knee for a stylish and everyday chic option that's still comfy enough for all-day wear. Complete this look with ballet flats if you want to wear this outfit to the office or with sneakers for a fall brunch date.

With a Turtleneck

Another great way to style denim skirts for fall is with tucked-in turtlenecks or mock turtlenecks. For a dynamic, flattering, and very fall-friendly look, pair your denim skirt with a super soft cashmere turtleneck that’s fitted enough to tuck into the waistline of your skirt or a mock turtleneck in an easy cotton material.

The best denim skirt to wear with this look is a midi length in either a light or classic blue hue, depending on the color of your turtleneck or mock turtleneck. You can add opaque tights and a cropped leather or pleather jacket to this outfit if you need some added warmth. Finish this stylish and versatile look with booties, sneakers, or Chelsea boots for a day spent enjoying the foliage or meeting friends at a local café for a cup of hot apple cider. You can also add cute accessories like a velvet headband and subtle earrings to really tie this outfit together.

With a Flannel Shirt

It wouldn’t be fall without wearing some of your favorite flannel shirts, right? These essential fall tops pair perfectly with denim bottoms, and that includes denim skirts. Try styling a thigh-length, a-line black denim skirt with a classic long-sleeve button-up flannel. Since black denim is so versatile, you can choose any colors you want for your flannel when putting this outfit together. Try a French tuck with your top, and feel free to add a thin leather or pleather belt for an added touch of style.

Complete this outfit with opaque or solid black tights and knee-high boots, plus a V-neck sweater or light jacket layer for added warmth and style if it's a bit on the chilly side.

With a Cropped Sweater

Another fall-friendly and oh-so-cute way to style a denim skirt this autumn is with a cropped crewneck sweater. You’ll want to start this outfit with a high-waisted denim skirt of any length or go with a denim skort. We love skorts because they're as stylish and flattering as your favorite skirts while providing the coverage and comfort of your go-to shorts. They’re ideal for your more active fall days when you still want to look your best.

Opt for a textured or print crop sweater for tops, like a trendy caramel leopard print, white and navy horizontal stripes, or chunky cable-knit. Regardless of the print or knit you choose, the cropped hemline of the sweater and the high waistline of your skirt or skort will create a flattering silhouette. Go with a shade of denim that complements the colors in the sweater's design. Paired with black or brown ankle booties or Chelsea boots and a solid color scarf, this look is perfect for any of your most cherished fall activities.

We hope that these tips leave you inspired to rock some dreamy denim looks this fall!
