6 Ways to Wear a Jean Skirt

Remember back in, like, 2004 when everyone from the cast of Laguna Beach to the president of your sorority made jean skirts and Uggs a “stylish” combination. *Shudder* Luckily, in 2018, there are a number of infinitely more fashionable ways to style this summer staple. Here are six of our faves.
