Okay let’s throw it back to way back when ya girl was killin’ it down the hallways of middle school. (“Killin’ it” might be a little extreme. It was more like kind of invisible. lol) During middle school, jean skirts were all the rage. But when I say skirt, I mainly mean teeny-tiny pieces of denim barely covering a girl’s derriere. I remember this was the piece of clothing girls would change into in the bathroom before class because their mom’s wouldn’t let them wear them past the front door.
But hey, who am I to judge? I had my own pair. Mine was from Old Navy and contrasting to the other jean skirts of the middle school, mine was huge! I’m pretty sure I could tuck the chunkiest sweater into the waist with room to spare. Despite the poorly chosen size, I still strutted around with my jean skirt-even if it would slide around so that the front of the skirt would eventually make it to one of my hips by the end of the day.
Within a few months, the fad quickly faded away. Jean skirts were soon replaced with the likes of jeggings. While the popular skirt was not so popular anymore, I folded mine away. For some reason, I knew jean skirt would make their way back to the fashion world again someday.
A decade or so later, I found myself wanting a jean skirt again. More and more, I was seeing different styles along the racks in clothing stores. This particular skirt, while it’s not the same one from way back when, is from Forever 21. And I find myself wearing it even more than before! Jean skirts are the perfect staple for every girl. Versatile and chic-who could ask for anything more?
