I’m ever so slightly obsessed with this Seasons’ denim
trends – especially button down denim – but as someone who is mostly seen
donning a simple jeans/-t-shirt combo, or some variation thereof, it hardly
comes as a surprise. Button down denim mini skirts have been getting a lot of
attention this year – not surprisingly – as they’re easy to wear and go with
almost everything. I haven’t purchased this years ‘it’ skirt, yet. Other denim
trends that graced the SS15 catwalk showed old classic reinterpreted; there
were vintage-inspired patchworks, culottes, military chic, 70’s inspired pieces
and of course, the denim dress – my favourite trend for this season.
We saw the denim dress brought to the fore again this season
by the likes of Marques’ Almeida, Stella McCartney and obviously, Alexa Chung
for AG Jeans. When I first saw Alexa donning that AG Jeans shirt dress – aside
from drawing in breath in awe – I knew decided that I needed a dupe. The only
problem with the denim shirt dress? They can be difficult to get right. Ones
with a belt are best, as they add shape where needed. They can also be tricky
for petite girls, like me, to pull off; I’m yet to try on a denim shirt dress
that looks decent. A much easier option, in my opinion, is the denim pinafore dress.
Big in 2013 and making a steady comeback this Summer. I already got my hands on
a purse friendly one from Forever 21, but I’ve seen many a denim dress on the
high street lately and these are my top picks. I noticed that the Miss
Selfridge shirt dress recently came back in stock and as I never had chance to
try this on I might just have to make a little trip to Miss Selfridge soon!
