How to wear a white top and denim skirt | 40plusstyle.com

Summer can be hot, so many times you will want to keep your outfit simple. A denim skirt and a (white) blouse can be all it takes to look chic!

Of course you don’t want to look boring so as I have emphasized many times before in this challenge, accessories make all the difference!

Denim skirt outfit inspiration

I opted for colorful accessories. White does tend to wash me out a bit so I make sure my lips are brighter and that I wear colorful sunglasses.

Instead of just sticking to red accents, I added orange into the mix and let all those colors come back in a printed bag.


Bags don’t need to be expensive. This one is made out of simple fabric and is a souvenir from my trip to Santa Fe. It’s one of my favorite bags as I often use it for simple outfits like this one to give it more life!
