Student Trend Saturday: Denim Skirts

Denim skirts are taking the spotlight for this week’s Student Trend Saturday. As Week 4 comes to an end and midterms start to show up at the forefront with the halfway mark of the quarter, UCLA students are still able to keep up with their best style selves on campus.

Denim is a basic staple piece that can be styled to be dressy or casual. Denim skirts can essentially serve as an easy go-to piece for any outfit… especially with the sunny LA winter weather that does not seem to be leaving anytime soon.

You may or may not be having flashbacks of your favorite celebrities rocking denim skirts back in the early 2000’s. However, denim skirts were first introduced in the decade of the 1970’s as a way of recycling denim for those looking towards a hippie, bohemian lifestyle.

Check out some of the ways denim skirts are styled by UCLA students:
