Wear Now: The Denim Dress

Denim styles were prominent on the Spring 2016 runways. We saw denim everything from jumpsuits to tops to matching sets. The denim piece I’m most excited about is the lightweight denim dress. These dresses are versatile, effortlessly chic, and available in so many styles right now.

Dress: c/o Venus (now $32)

Scarf: J.Crew (on sale)

Coat: Anthropologie

Shoes: J.Crew (old, option, option)

Bag: Kate Spade (similar)
Earrings: Kendra Scott (new for spring)
Watch—Movado (silver styleSkagen option)
Lip: Mac “Heroine” lipstickMac “Heroine” lip pencil

I knew I wanted today’s featured denim dress (on sale, $32) the moment I saw it. The dress is sleeveless, which makes it easy to style and restyle (just add layers!). It’s the perfect shade of denim blue, making it especially easy to mix with other colors and prints. And, that zip front? It’s the sexiest detail.

I wore the dress on a day that forecasts promised 70 degree temperatures, but when I left home that day, it wasn’t that warm yet. So, I threw on some layers to stay warm until it got warmer. My old eyelet trench from Anthropologie was the perfect topper.

Once it warmed up here in the Lou, I lost the trench coat, but kept the scarf for comfort and the pop of color and print. By the way, this striped fringe scarf is now on sale!

Sizing? True to size. I sized up to a medium in the dress, but shouldn’t have

The dress is so stretchy that I should’ve gotten my usual size small.

My d’Orsay flats are a J.Crew style from last year. One of my favorite styles so far this year is the colorblock flats with pom-poms. They keep selling out, but my store associate helped me track a pair down in New Jersey. They’re on their way to me. I also like the d’Orsay flats in batik print

Fab denim dresses to wear now and later:

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
