7 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing a Denim Skirt

Denim skirts are a popular choice of women’s apparel during the summer. They are soft, hypoallergenic, durable and easy to maintain. Best of all, they offer a traditional appearance that’s easy to integrate into your outfits. All denim skirts are made of denim. Denim is a cotton-based material in which the weft goes under two or more warp threads. When most people think of denim, they envision jeans. For over a century, jeans have been made of denim. But denim is used to make other garments, including skirts. If you’re thinking about buying a denim skirt, there are several mistakes you should avoid making. #1) Choosing Non-Enzyme Washed Don’t make the mistake of choosing a non-enzyme washed denim skirt. Some denim skirts are washed in an enzyme solution during production, whereas others are not. Enzyme-washed denim skirts offer many advantages over their non-enzyme washed counterparts. When washed in an enzyme solution, denim skirts become softer. The enzyme solution will soften the denim material while subsequently making it less scratchy. At the same time, it will pre-shrink the denim material. The bottom line is that enzyme-washed denim skirts are softer and better protected against shrinkage than non-enzyme washed denim skirts. #2) Assuming All Denim Skirts Are the Same There are different types of denim skirts. Most of them fall under one of two categories: plain denim or stretch denim. Plan denim skirts are characterized by a construction consisting entirely of denim. They don’t contain any other material or materials. Rather, plain denim skirts are made entirely of denim. Stretch denim skirts, on the other hand, are made of denim and...

By including these denim clothes in your summer outfits, you’ll beat the heat while projecting a stylish, fashion-forward appearance in the process. #1) Distressed Denim Jeans You can’t go wrong with a pair of distressed denim jeans during the summer. Why are distressed denim jeans a good choice for the summer exactly? Well, they allow your legs to “breathe” a little more easily because of their heavily worn construction. Distressed denim jeans are intentionally worn — typically around the knees and thighs — to create the appearance of aging. They are still made of the same denim fabric as other jeans. The only difference is that distressed denim jeans are intentionally worn during production. And because of their patches of intentional wearing, distressed denim jeans are cooler and more comfortable to wear during the summer than non-distressed denim jeans. #2) Short-Length Denim Jeans Not all denim jeans stop at the ankles. While most denim jeans do, in fact, stop at the ankles when worn, some stop at the shins or higher. Known as short-length denim jeans, they offer a superior level of...

Normally, denim skirts will feature at least one of these two fasteners. On the front, for example, you may find a row of buttons or a zipper. The purpose of these fasteners is to simplify the process of putting on and taking off the denim skirt. You can choose either a denim skirt with either type of fastener. Just remember to make sure the fastener is durable and high quality. If the buttons or zipper are...
