Every Woman Should Have a Denim Dress

A denim dress is an ultra versatile staple in a women's closet. Wear it nearly all year around, stopping short of the coldest days in winter.

They come in a multitude of styles and washes and flatter all body types. Dress a demin frock up, or down with the right scarves, shoes and jewlery. Wear one to the office, or around town or home to run errands and do chores. I prefer looking casual smart instead of sloppy. A stylish demin dress does the trick! I bought the middle denim dress from Old Navy, and it is even cuter tried-on than it photographs. Before ordering it, the frayed edges worried me, but they look more polished than in the image, thankfully! The fabric is substanial and doesn't easily wrinkle.

Though you will find demin dresses on the racks of high end stores, they are so popular -- with so many retailers offering them in their collection -- this is one item you can buy cheap. Always look for 100% cotton. Quality demin dresses (soft and of weighty material) are often sold for under $40. I got the Old Navy suspended-neck trapeze demin dress for $17 on sale and receive lots of compliments when I wear it.

Good news, readers! Old Navy has sales around the clock, including right now: Running 50% off of their entire stock of demin! Do you need a demin dress?

  1. I do need a denim dress! Since January I have had a piece of denim material here waiting to be made up, but too many other things get in the way. Now there are so many great denims about, I should buy one too. I really like the Banana Republic one. Maybe I will find one in London....

    1. Trish, yes, the one from Banana Republic is a classic cut. So hard to find sleeves these days! Not sure why?

  2. Thanks for the tip! I ordered an adorable demin dress on sale from Old Navy. I agree with not wanting to look sloppy to run errands. I can throw a demin dress in the washer and dryer just like sweats. Most likely I'd just hang it up to dry so there's no chance of strinkage. Thanks for the idea!

  3. So cute, Debra. They are all adorable, though too young for me. I do have several denim tops, two denim vests and two denim skirts that I love. I mix them with everything from leather to lace. What would we do without a touch of denim in our wardrobes??

    Lovely post.

    Cheers, M-T

    1. I agree with you on the versitility of demin. It mixes and matches in so many different ways. I can imagine how stylish you look pairing denim with leather or lace. Ooo la la!
