At heart, I’ll always be a jeans-and-tee kind of girl, but lately I’ve found a new way to get my denim fix: denim dresses. These babies have all the comfort of your fave pair of blue jeans, along with the stylish ease of a summer sundress. Seriously, I can’t get enough of them!
Below, I’ll show you four cute ways to style four different types of denim dresses this summer:
Outfit 1: Modern Classic
The denim shirtdress is a total classic that’s having a fashion resurgence this season. Style this on-trend, yet timeless light-wash version with a pair of faux suede oxfords for a menswear-inspired vibe. A striped tote plays up the classic feel, while a bright blue nail polish adds a modern touch. Lastly, accessorize with several mix-and-match bracelets, as well as a tortoise-trim wristwatch.
Outfit 2: Sweet & Girly
Fit-and-flare dresses are both stylish and ulta-flattering, and this denim pick is no exception. I love the delicate lace detailing around the collar and skirt, so add to that girly vibe with a pair of sweet blue ballet flats. A scalloped satchel is both cute and practical, while bow-shaped earrings continue the super-feminine look of the ensemble. For the finishing touch, add a swipe of pale pink lipstick.
Outfit 3: Tough Meets Trendy
These denim pinafore/overall dresses are über-trendy at the moment – perfect for all you fashion-forward girls out there! You can wear them with a bandeau top (like the model above), but I like the idea of rocking one with a versatile striped tee underneath. Pair the ensemble with ankle booties for a very Alex Chung-esque look. A lavender cross-body bag adds a nice contrast of color, while this spiked statement necklace gives the outfit some edge. Slip on your trendiest sunnies to complete the look.
Outfit 4: Boho Glam
Bustier denim dresses work well for a night on the town, and this polka-dot-print version amps up the style factor even more. Pair the frock with some sky-high wedges, then grab a cool printed straw clutch. Go boho-chic with the jewelry – these stacked rings and glam feather-shaped earrings complement the rest of the look perfectly.
