For all of the comfort and ease denim offers, we’ll be the first to admit that jean dresses can feel pretty blah. A quick shopping search shows the same mini skirt apron style with little to no variation. Thankfully, designers are mastering the art of retooling the fabric and turning denim dresses into a fashionable piece you’ll want to wear over and over again.
If you live for a long-sleeve, utilitarian style dress, you’re in luck; and if a midi wrap is more your speed, 7 For All Mankind has one that has us gushing over how designers can now bend a yard of denim to fit their will. Plus, the styling capabilities are endless with these structured or soft pieces. For instance, a cute cardigan sweater perched over your shoulders on a sleeveless mini or a button-up denim shirt dress paired with knee-high boots. The list goes on, but one thing is for a denim dress is a must-have item.
So hurry and find the one designed for you. Don’t you think it’s time to give your fall dresses a refresher? Ahead, 18 denim dresses that prove just how versatile and adorable the design is for fall ‘fits.
