Denim Shirt Dress

When the occasion calls for something a little more inspiring denim jeans but not necessarily a suit and briefcase, the denim shirt dress provides women with another option. Reminiscent of their men's work shirt forefathers, denim shirt dresses give the allusion of casual ease and comfort.

Demin dresses come in a wide variety of colors, including such favorites as indigo, faded twill, distressed black, bleached white, brown, gold, and gray steel. Many fashions feature fringe, distressed cuts, color-blocking, Western yokes, lace accents, and what many women crave—pockets. Denim prints detailed top-stitching add extra appeal to many garments.

While traditionally, denim was thought of as Western wear, today’s woman will find denim dresses that are sophisticated, contemporary designs. She can also find bohemian chic shirt dresses with embroidery and flowing skirts and everything in between.

The styles of denim shirt dresses vary even more than the color and shade of denim used. Many styles pair up nicely with leggings as well. From the simple, longer version of a button-down shirt to an asymmetrically tailored dress with an attached pleated denim skirt, women of all ages and tastes can find something to wear.

With sleeveless fashions for summer to long-sleeved, heavy denim maxis for winter, the denim shirt dress works for all seasons. It can easily be paired with a jacket for casual Fridays at work or dressed up with jewelry for a date night at the movies.

Styled with scarves, coordinated with long-sleeved undershirts, or belted, this style of dress is a versatile part of any closet. A denim shirt dress can be worn open as over Capri pants with canvas shoes or layered over a long-sleeve shirt and paired with knee-length boots.

Even celebs appreciate the diversity and comfort of the denim dress. Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Khloe Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and Jessica Simpson have been spotted out and about in denim shirt dresses.
