The 90’s are back! That means dungarees and denim galore! Denim is not just for jeans and should no longer be lurking at the back of your wardrobes for casual weekends, that’s right there is a world of endless “denim-tastic” possibilities out there!
We saw celebrities, such as Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton, proudly wearing their dungarees and now it’s time to get our denim on…about time too! And because of this happy denim explosion, this means that lucky for us there is a HUGE variety of styles, prices and yes…colours to choose from, so you can find your perfect fit of denim dress. So ladies, that being said, it’s time to find your perfect denim dress look.
The Denim Shirt Dress (WITH a waist)
This is the perfect style for a more chic look. It has all the charm of being a casual denim dress, but can be dressed up or down to suit the mood. The cinched waist means it is flattering and draws the eye attention inwards. A perfect choice for casual Fridays at the office, still chic but in a more laid-back way, just the way it should be.
Tip: We are loving this Karen Millen denim number, which is the perfect transition piece for your wardrobe and embodies this trend down to a tee. Also Diesel have hit the nail on the head with this great tie waist dress and super flattering sleeve.
The Dungarees Denim Dress
This is a more playful denim dress look and really a nod to the 90’s at it’s best. It can be girly when teamed with a pretty blouse or chilled with a slouchy jumper or t-shirt. Go for a white t-shirt for a fresh everyday style.
Tip: Check out this gorgeous Topshop dress and it’s only £ 32 !! and for a more vinatge take on the dungarees dress, Urban Renewal and MinkPink has just what your looking for!
The Boyfriend Denim Dress
So many options with this one, but again the idea is that you shouldn’t look like you have tried and well actually you don’t need to with this style. It really is the best possible style and it gives that “Oh this? I just threw it on” look and yep…you did, but with flare. The key with this trend is because of it’s looser silhouette, it is essential that you make up for it with being girly in other aspects of your outfit. This style is best when kept minimal. Minimal, fresh make-up, statement jewelry, a bright colourful bag, statement shoes or chuck on your trainers. Wear the collar on your denim dress done right up, all neat and tidy for a preppy look or undo a couple of cheeky buttons and layer a plain top underneath.
Tip: Shirt style dresses, such as, this one by s.Oliver denim dress is a great versatile choice, that will see you through all the seasons, come rain or shine. But if you fancy saving a bit of extra cash, then Vero Moda have got it spot on!
The Designer Denim Dress
If you haven’t noticed yet, then you will pleased to hear that denim got a makeover, with brands, like Vivienne Westwood giving us more than just the standard. But then let’s be honest when did that ever happen. Pops of colour, patterns, washes and embroidery…anything is possible. Think outside the box.
Tip: Still want to make an impact, but at less than half the price? Then it’s worth taking a peek at this Noisy May denim dress and this Paramita denim dress.
Tip: Undo your denim dress completely…wait for it..and wear it as a jacket…now that’s 90’s.
