Denim and chambray are everywhere. The denim trend started to become popular for spring and summer, and it’s continuing to show up in stores for fall. I’m not just talking about standard jeans and denim shorts either. Skirts, dresses, shirts, and jackets in denim and chambray are making a major impact this season. My favorite denim choice? Dresses – whether they’re more casual or work-appropriate, light or dark wash, simple or western inspired, they look fantastic worn in a number of ways. Here, I will attempt to find the right denim dress for less.
3.1 PHILLIP LIM Patchwork Denim Dress, $448.33 (pictured above)
Something about the patchwork construction of this dress really works. I think it has to do with the sleek, contemporary silhouette, which gives it a more modern, chic look.
Again, the simple, modern silhouette makes the light wash denim look less casual.
Bella Dahl Shirt Dress – Chambray, $133.60
Chambray tends to be lighter and softer than denim. This dress seems to be a bit more casual, probably due to the lighter wash and relaxed construction.
This shift dress is the perfect summer dress! It’s certainly a more casual look, but I can also imagine wearing it with a cardigan or blazer with a belt around the waist to make it more suitable for the office.
This dress is similar to the Bella Dahl dress above, but is more modest look and darker wash make it easily work appropriate.
