Denim Dress

Denim dresses are no new trend, they've been around a long time and have been designed & worn many different ways. Some of those ways may put many Americans to shame, like the one my mother wore when I was 6...dreadful. Lucky for us, we've seen some great denim dresses this year that were up to par. I happened to pick 2 up for myself a few months ago and I love them, one is a very fitted shift dress with 3/4 sleeves and the other is a strapless tie dye denim. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that everyone needs a denim dress, it is my new closet staple. So I've taken the hard part out and already chose 5 denim dresses that can be very versatile. Best part? All are under $60! 

Denim Dress



Each one of these dresses can be dressed up or down, for day or night. 
**Work Appropriate (depending on your job)- Add a blazer or cardigan with color, sleek jewelry...statement necklaces for the more daring, and nude heels. As you can see, #5 is already acceptable for most jobs. 
**For Play- Chucks or other type of sneaker, neon jewelry, and a fun bag. 
**Night Out- I think the denim/chiffon mixed material dresses are great for nights. Put on a pair of strappy heels or platform wedges, delicate jewelry with a fun piece or 2 thrown in, and a clutch. Not sure I went with all the black in the photo below...what do you think? 
**Daytime Errands- Oxfords/flats in a pretty color or print, fedora, and a bright handbag.
Here's what I come up with using 4 of the dresses from above...

Here comes the broken record cause I will say it again. These dresses are so versatile that any of them can be styled for day or night. With layers they will easily take you into fall/winter as well. How do you wear your denim dress? What did you think about the 4 looks and which is your favorite?
