For an afternoon of running errands in LA, Emma Roberts chose to wear a printed tee with the phrase "Truckin' Together" on it, a denim miniskirt, and flip-flops. Her accessories really elevated the look from just grunge to grunge glam. Black cat-eye sunglasses added a retro touch, while her leopard chain-strap bag lent a wild edge. Re-create Emma's latest look for your next day of errands by pairing a band tee with a denim skirt, a leopard bag, and cat-eye shades. Shop similar pieces below to get started.
We already showed you four stylish celebrity-inspired ways to wear your denim skirt this Summer and now we have witnessed the chicest way. At Chanel's Haute Couture show in Paris, British model Poppy Delevingne taught us how to work a denim skirt in the most sophisticated way possible. She started out by tucking a white silk blouse into her light denim skirt, then added major sparkle via these Givenchy gold glitter sandals ($624, originally $1,040). For a touch of quirkiness, Poppy wore rose-tint round Ray-Ban sunglasses, then finished off with a contrasting teal clutch. Poppy's Parisian ensemble is an example of how denim need not only be for laid-back settings. Work your jean skirt with a silk blouse and glittery sandals for your next high-profile appearance.
We showed you five celebrity-inspired ways to work your denim jacket — now it's time to turn our attention to another Summer staple: the denim skirt.

Eva Mendes had her hands full during a shopping spree in LA, but she still managed to look stylish in her retro-inspired outfit: a daisy-print blouse by Asos ($40, originally $58), which she tied at the front, with a high-waisted, knee-length denim skirt, Christian Louboutin wedge espadrilles, and her go-to blue Thierry Lasry sunglasses. If you've been hiding that vintage denim skirt in the back of your closet, allow Eva to be your inspiration for bringing it back out and putting it to good use. Grab any of your button-down blouses, roll up the sleeves, tie it at the bottom, and pair it with equally cute espadrilles for a fabulous summery retro vibe.

We're zooming in on denim skirts for our next in-depth denim guide series, and while the thought of this trend might sound a little too '90s for your taste, we beg to differ. Designers like Chloé and Isabel Marant brought denim skirts back on their runways, showing us their interpretation of the denim skirt, ranging from loose A-line silhouettes to flouncier shapes, and we've also spotted some other notable contenders like chic pencil skirts, long maxi styles, and even brightly hued versions. Peruse the slideshow to see our top 10 denim skirt picks and why we love them.
All denim options are on the table this season. From shorts to shirts and everything in between, it's a hot-ticket item. I'm especially into chambray pieces for its denim effect in a lighter fabric. So, this Leifsdottir Chambray Skirt ($188) totally had me — a super girlie take on the trend that you could toughen up with gladiators and a tank. Only problem was the three-digit price tag, so I set off in search of one that doesn't break the bank.

If you're similarly smitten with Isabel Marant's Spring collection, I suggest you jump on this Tiered Denim Skirt, size small. The lightwash finish and short hemline would look amazing with slouchy suede boots, a loose white tank, turq jewels, and wavy hair (optional). Perfect for road trips, parties, and Summer fun. Beware, I'm tempted to beat you to the punch . . .
The current bidding price is at $9.99 and the auction ends on Sunday, June 7. Good luck and happy bidding!

Never, ever, rid yourself of a denim skirt. It's a classic. OK, maybe you can toss it if it's acid wash, but still, you never know.
Little Miss Naughty is looking just that in this Vintage '80s high-waist denim pencil skirt ($20). I could totally see Rachel Bilson in this with a simple tank and the bag to have. Scratch that — I could see me in it with a naughty tank and vintage clutch. See, denim skirts appease everyone.
