ALL IN THE DETAILS: Down for Denim

Like the business cycle, denim is stuck on a revolving loop of trends. One season, distressed skinnies are everything, then boyfriend jeans and now (finally) the denim mini skirt is back.  We all remember the days of Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister Co. when nothing was more trendy than a raw hemmed denim mini skirt paired with leg warmers, Birkenstock clogs and that notorious moose.  Well, for those of you who dream of yesteryear, the trend has come full circle and is back to take over street style this spring.

While those other accessories are not quite so ready for a comeback, the denim mini has revamped its look to adjust to modern fashion.  When picking up your spring wardrobe, be sure to purchase of these bad boys.  This Fashionista knows her stuff, and by matching her Brandy Melville mini skirt with a simple, black T-shirt and an equally-chic denim jacket, she has created the perfect ensemble for any spring occasion. Throw this on for an afternoon class, Saturday brunch or an all day shopping trip and you’ll be set in a New York minute.

To add the finishing touches to this look, this Fashionista brought along a not-so-basic Longchamp tote, some delicate jewelry, Ray-Ban sunnies and the perfect pair of black, leather booties that look and feel delectable.  When the sun starts to set, her denim jacket is readily available for an extra layer of warmth.  If you are an accessory queen, just add a thin belt or a black floppy hat.  Both additions will compliment the look without taking away the focus from your trend-setting denim mini.

How To: This Fashionista knows best, so if the denim mini is your next purchase, go ahead and pick up a great basic T-shirt and some fabulous accessories to go with it. Keep it simple and you will be golden.
