This plus size red striped tee outfit got me thinkin’ about cook-outs and my love of denim skirts in the summer. I don’t do shorts at this stage in my life, so my compromise is a denim skirt. As I said in a post, oh so long ago…
The plus size denim skirt is really as easy to wear as a pair of your favorite jeans. It works with nearly everything in your closet, I promise. But you want to know why I really “love” love it? In the hot swamp-like sweltering summers, my legs can be free [breathe legs!] and I don’t have the downside of shorts, namely fabric gathering between my thighs and riding up my butt. I don’t mean to sound too harsh on shorts, there have been many times I’ve rocked a grass green or hot coral pair of bermudas.
But to be honest, I much prefer the look and feel of a skirt. Now don’t get it twisted, I’ll be sporting some type of Spanx or shaping shorts under to give me coverage and prevent “chub rub.” So my legs will really only be free from about just above the knee down. But hey, I’m thankful for that on a 100-degree day!
And the last reason that I love a plus size denim skirt is you can often pretend it’s dressier than it actually is. At the end of the day, the denim skirt is just a pair of jeans. But with the right top and shoes, we can all pretend it is a pencil skirt in denim fabric. It’s not. Lol. But I won’t tell.
