Why Denim Dresses Are a Spring Essential

Is this the it-dress for spring?

If there’s one thing I’m noticing a lot this spring it’s the return of denim. Denim skirts, shirts, jackets, & dresses in particular. It’s not to say I wasn’t a fan of denim before, but it’s pretty clear it’s one of the trends taking over my wardrobe in the past couple months.

There’s something really effortless and relaxed about denim, you know? It’s the ultimate classic.

Ever since I spotted this cute denim dress I have been wearing it every chance the weather has been warm enough. I paired it with my trusty superstars to meld the femininity of the flirty dress with a cool pair of sneakers. I used to completely shy away from sneakers, let alone when it came to skirts and dresses. But I have to say, I’m quite smitten with the pairing. Although I do appreciate the occasional ruffled top or floral skirt, my personal style isn’t overly feminine so I’m very comfortable with the way this outfit embraces both qualities.

The best thing about a denim dress is how easy it is to wear. It’s one of those go-to outfits when you think you have nothing to wear and it can be pulled together so easily by accessories. You’ve probably seen the denim shirt dresses making the rounds on Instagram and blogs, and although I do adore them, I just feel they’re not the right fit for me so I opted for a skater style dress instead. Plus, don’t you just love the lace up front detail? I really can’t get enough of it.
