Making the little denim shirt dress feel new

We all have one... I mean, we probably all do due to the fact that these little classic items became quite the super trendy items over the past few years. You probably at least own a denim or chambray top. Whether yours is in a denim or chambray (if you're unsure of the difference and curiosity has gotten the best of you, I have a riveting fashion vocabulary post just for you here), chances are, you're probably sick of it because you probably wore the heck out of it last season because they're just so dang easy.

And if you couldn't care less about the difference between the two fabrics, well, that's ok and it's not going to make much of a difference anyway.

K, let's proceed.

While quite trendy the past few years, these dresses or tops are very classic and can feel just as current this season with the addition of some funky gladiator sandals or a serious statement shoe.

I like to go a little edgy and strappy with this type of dress because it can look a bit plain on it's own. The shoes give it some personality.  

The last few seasons, I was all about belting these and pairing them with fun, bright colors (I probably still will at some point), but this year I'm all about letting it hang loose for a more relaxed feel and adding edgy accessories.

Perfect when you want a relaxed look that doesn't look like you've tried too hard, but has a little somethin' extra.

I wore this look for Father's Day and my dad said my gladiator shoes looked like boots that were caged in but weren't finished....haha. Dads and shoes...

Hope this inspires you all to break out your little denim dresses (or tops) again this year and edge them up a bit! I know... denim and gladiators... Groundbreaking, super simple tip, right?  But sometimes, those are the very best kinds! Throw on some heavy gold accessories and you've got yourself a fool-proof look.

  1. I LOVE the denim shirt dress! Wish I had one ... but I don't due to the fact that I was a little overweight the last few years and now that my body has changed I don't have the money to shop because I entered college and everything is so damn expensive when you live on your own! :'(

  2. I love that denim dress!! I definitely am going to go out and look for one, it looks perfect for summer!!
