Denim Dresses + Denim Trends

Madewell $128

Denim trends have been a topic of conversation among style experts lately. They seem distracted by the lack of direction. Personally, I am loving the variety. With denim trends all over the place, you can basically get any kind of denim right now, from skinny and distressed to flared and clean. In fact, the real “now” concept when it comes to denim is overindulgence. You can live in denim all week and still wear completely different garments. There are flattering and stylish denim dresses, denim overalls, denim skirts, denim jackets, and more. My favorite denim pieces are below. (You can also see how I styled a denim on denim outfit + tips for wearing denim on denim, here.)

7 For All Mankind Utility Denim Mini Dress in Utility Rinse

I love the look of this 7 For All Mankind Utility Denim Mini Dress in Utility Rinse. It is best for a longer torso, but the shoulders can be hemmed for someone with an average or shorter torso. It looks best on a flat or smooth stomach. This does not mean you have to be thin. Some women’s stomachs stick out at a size 0 or a size 14. On the other hand, you can have a flat stomach at a size 0 or a size 14, depending on your body type. Tip: You can wear this dress as is or with a tight tee or turtleneck underneath, as shown. This dress is available at Neiman Marcus7 For All Mankind, and Bergdorf Goodman.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Madewell Adirondack Short Overalls in Denville Wash

These Madewell Adirondack Short Overalls in Denville Wash are so flattering and stretchy. They are available at Shopbop and Madewell.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size. You might be able to size down if you want since the fabric is so stretchy.

Liverpool Released Hem Denim Pencil Skirt

The Liverpool Released Hem Denim Pencil Skirt is so insanely comfortable and stretchy as hell. It almost feels like a legging fabric. The con of the deftness is that it doesn’t hold your stomach in at all, so it looks best on a flat or smooth stomach. As I mentioned previously, this does not mean you have to be thin. You can have a smooth stomach at a size 0 or a size 14, depending on your body type.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Madewell Skinny Overalls in Jansing Wash

Madewell has revolutionized overalls. These Madewell Skinny Overalls in Jansing Wash look amazing on every single person. They are available at NordstromMadewell, and Shopbop.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Madewell Denim Button-Front Tank Dress

I adore this Madewell Denim Button-Front Tank Dress. You can wear it as is or with a tight tee or turtleneck underneath.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Madewell Apiece Apart Mariol Denim Romper

I know Madewell has taken over this theme, but you know that Madewell is THE denim brand. They describe themselves as makers of denim and the items that go with it. I just ordered this Madewell Apiece Apart Mariol Denim Romper and cannot wait to try it on.

Sizing Tip: I believe this runs true to size.

Madewell Skinny Overalls in Lunar Wash

The Madewell Skinny Overalls in Lunar Wash are just another example of flattering and fabulous stretchy overalls. The only issue is the open back can show your back fat if you pair it with tighter tops. I mention this because I often recommend tighter tops with overalls.

Sizing Tip: True to size.

Catherine Catherine Malandrino Keala Dropwaist Chambray Dress

This Catherine Catherine Malandrino Keala Dropwaist Chambray Dress is wonderfully unflattering. It is an absolute bag and I love it. The fabric feels like pajamas and you can eat and eat in it. It is available at Nordstrom and Amazon.

Sizing Tip: Runs big, try a size down.

Madewell Stretch Denim Straight Miniskirt

This Madewell Stretch Denim Straight Miniskirt is so fresh and fun! It is soft, but not so soft that it feels thin. It is available at Nordstrom and Madewell.

J.Crew Denim Overall in Indigo Wash

J.Crew $148

This J.Crew Denim overall in Indigo Wash is so unique and fun because it’s more like a jumpsuit than overalls.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size, but order a size up as well to compare fits.

Madewell Denim Structured Shirtdress

I am so into the long sleeve denim dresses out there right now. This Madewell Denim Structured Shirtdress is a great example of a light wash style.

Sizing Tip: Runs true to size.

Topshop Step Hem Denim Skirt

Topshop $60 $35.99

I love the back of this Topshop Step Hem Denim Skirt. You get to have a mini look without showing your butt cheeks when you bend over. Tip: This is a stiffer denim so your stomach is smoothed out a little bit.

Sizing Tip: Runs small and short. Best on women under 5’5″ and order a size up.
