Denim Review: Current/Elliott Dorothy Denim Pencil Skirt

I had been lusting over the Current/Elliot Dorothy Skirt for ages. Maybe it was the buttons, or the high waist pencil,  maybe I just have a thing for Current/Elliott. But the second I saw it, I knew that it was going to be a must-have this summer. Pencil skirts work for almost every silhouette, they’re womanly, sultry and surprisingly easy to wear. Seeing one in denim just made my day, as it’s the perfect mix of carefree and classic. Even ladies who say they don’t like denim would be hard pressed not to come up with a great outfit with the Dorothy Skirt.

The Denim:

The Dorothy Skirt has a lot of the same qualities of Current/Elliott denim. The denim itself is characteristically soft, the enough stretch to be comfortable whether you go for a more fitted look or a more relaxed look. The wash is natural looking with a strong grain, which even for the pickiest of denim snobs it passes the wash test for me. With two pockets in the front with the additional classic coin pocket, and belt hoops, it’s similar to a pair of jeans. I went ahead and ordered a size down (I usually wear a 26 or 27, for Current/Elliott, I’m generally a 26) and the skirt fit perfectly. It is meant to be worn as a high waisted skirt, and the waist had a good amount of give to be comfortable. I love the buttons that go all the way down, so cute.

How to wear it…

Gosh, how to wear a grey pencil skirt? How not to wear it?  It is impossible to wear a pencil skirt the wrong way. Today, I’ve decided to go along the classic route with a blouse Rag & Bone had sent me earlier this year. Tied up in the front for a perfect summer day along with Super Sunglasses and a pair of nude sandals makes for an ideal Friday outfit.

    Hi! Very nice pictures, it is you on them?You are so cute)
    A slim denim pencil skirt looks best with a simple top in white color, that plays up the sleek, sophisticated lines of the skirt. Great choice Jennine!
