5 Ways To Wear A Denim Dress


The classic denim dress, I’ve been wanting one for months now, but I just haven’t been able to find one that fits me just right. They’re either too long, too short or just make me look like I’m wearing a sack. But my prayers were answered when I found this perfect blue denim button down dress in H&M which is really good quality even though it was only £19.99.
Once I bought it, I had lots of fun figuring out different ways you could wear it. It’s even more versatile than I thought because I have been able to make it super casual and dress it up a bit! I definitely recommend getting a denim dress that fits you really well as they are a spring/summer staple. (Getting a shapeless one, like the one I have, is a good idea so you can wear it with or without a belt).
City girl
One of my favourite ways to wear a denim dress is buttoned down with a top underneath. It looks so casual but cool at the same time. I wore a simple navy striped top under the dress and a brown leather plaited belt to give the dress some shape. To keep it casual, I added a simple tan shoulder bag, navy Converse and sunglasses.

Causal day
This is probably the most basic way to style a denim dress so perfect if you are in a rush. I simply added a white studded belt, brown leather cross-body bag and white Converse. Despite this being so simple, I think it looks super chic and would look fab with a bold red lip.
Classy cardi
I know this is a bit of a different way to wear a denim dress but I really think it works! On a colder day, let’s be honest, that’s not a rarity in England, wearing a denim dress as a jacket is a great idea. I kept the dress simple by wearing a plain grey one under the denim dress/cardi and to make the outfit more sophisticated, I paired it with dusky pink heeled boots and a light tan handbag.

Smart Casual
It’s well known that denim isn’t a particularly dressy fabric, but I tried to defy these expectations and make it suitable for a causal evening out. I knew that the way to dress it up would be with accessories but I didn’t want to go too OTT so I stuck with a simple colour palette. I paired it with dark blue suede open toe heels, black clutch bag and a gold statement necklace.

Winter walk
For the last look, I wanted to try and make an outfit more appropriate for the cold weather of England. So I went for a dark khaki turtle neck, black tights, ankle boots and a structured dark berry handbag. I love this look and it would look killer with a berry lip to match your handbag.
