I recently purchased a high-waisted A-line skirt from Topshop, on sale for $14 and I'm dying to get it in the mail. It's pale blue denim and so very '70s.
Kirsten Dunst always manages to capture laid-back SoCal chic perfectly. Zooey Deschanel gives the look more of a '20s vibe pairing her denim skirt with a nautical top by the L.A.-based brand Dear Creatures and Claudia Schiffer wears Stella McCartney denim with a bohemian flair. Rebecca Taylor's Spring 2011 collection included a denim skirt.
I consider a cute denim skirt a perfect wardrobe staple for both summer and fall (if paired with stockings or tights). I favor more conservative denim skirts. Much classier and more retro.
