The Best Long Denim Skirts Make Getting Dressed Easier

Worn by hippies and cowgirls alike, jean skirts are a wardrobe essential. Shorter ones can skew informal, but the best long denim skirts fit snugly into both work and weekend uniforms. “A denim skirt should be a style staple in every woman’s closet,” says Meredith Melling, co-founder of La Ligne. “It’s the happy medium between the casual nature of denim and the more dressed-up polish of a skirt.” These days, you can find designs that come in a full spectrum of washes and silhouettes, in minimalist dark denim or embellished with unexpected details.

Clearly, there’s no singular silhouette or style that can encapsulate everything that is the long denim skirt. Whether you opt for a classic pencil skirt silhouette à la Kendall Jenner or choose a Y2K-inspired maxi, think of the piece as the anchor of your outfit and swap out accessories depending on the occasion.

We’ve hunted down 19 great long denim skirts—from understated to bold—to incorporate into your current wardrobe. The great thing about a not-so-basic basic: It actually makes getting dressed more simple.
