The denim skirt is one of the more perplexing trends to come back into fashion, but we really can't say we hate it.

The secret to wearing a denim skirt, as demonstrated here by An of 9 to 5 Chic, is keeping your look as sleek and chic as possible. We suggest forgoing a frayed mini (similar to one you may have bought at Abercrombie & Fitch in high school) in favor of a knee-length pencil skirt with minimal embellishments and details -- preferably none. An's skirt looks extra cool because of the light gray wash, which takes away from the whole denim skirt aspect.

An paired her skirt with a basic white button-down, a comfy cape, pointy-toe heels and a structured tote. Nothing about this look says mall rat to us!
