Lately, we have seen no shortage of denim dresses taking the retail world by storm. Last season there was plenty of chambray, a look you can still repeat again this year. But this spring, designers have swapped the loose fitting looks for something a bit more tailored. This go around, think knotted shoulder straps, shorter hemlines, and sturdier fabrics with apron-inspired appearances. For the denim lover looking for a little springtime structure in her life, this blue jean look was made for you.
When sporting an apron denim dress you can either dare to bare some shoulder or opt for a little layering. I chose the first for a humid hot day, but this look would be just as chic styled with a simple fitted top tucked underneath. My white on white shoes and accessories are always my first pick at this point, but if you’re wary of this stark accessorized combo, have a little scroll through the fashion archives and hopefully, you’ll be convinced springtime whites truly go with everything. My go-to circle bag is finally back in stock!! And I’ve linked some white block heels that are very similar to these but under $60. Not sure if the denim dress style is for you? Imagine it on a warm spring day with a pair of platform espadrilles or these Chloe look-alike wedges. Restyle it with bamboo accessories for springtime drinks or brunch. Go preppy with a boater hat and neck scarf. Be a little trendy by slipping on a fun fabric block heel loafer or keep it classic and wear your favorite neutral leather handbag and a pair of leather slides.
I gravitated towards this retro Rag and Bone style for its soft blue hue and super sleek fit, but contemporary favorites like Rebecca Taylor, Stella McCartney, See by Chloe and Sea New York all have their own renditions of this darling denim design and I’m linking them all, along with this exact look below!
