I love a classic, but more than a classic I love a twist on a classic. Denim is such a go to, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t count a piece or five of denim amongst their most worn items. I actually could not live without my black skinny jeans, chambray shirt and now this denim dress, which has been on high rotation since buying it earlier this year in Singapore.
They are popping up everywhere. I was just in Zara last night and saw a couple of great denim shirt dresses. I actually have two others but I particularly love the weight of this one, its kind of heavy without being too structured, the denim is so soft and its got a funky but more importantly flattering shape to it as it just skims my curves and is that little bit longer at the back which makes me a little more confident in it during the weeks I am carrying a little extra weight on my thighs, (does anyone else fluctuate quite dramatically throughout the month – so annoying) anyway its nice to have something easy to throw on when I’m not feeling overly body happy that makes me feel great again.
There are many things I love about this dress, but a big one is it has pockets!! As soon as a dress has pockets, I find it very hard to not need it. I am currently dying to get my hands on some heavily frayed jeans and still haven’t found the perfect pair for me just yet, but the fray on the hem of this dress is keeping my appetite satisfied nicely in the meantime.
I have been wearing this dress a lot lately, it really is very versatile. I am loving it with these Rag & Bone Newbury boots and my fave go to Gucci Soho Disco bag, really a very simple outfit but I think the chunky heel on the boot and the tassel on the bag pull it together in a casual and funky way and not to mention being super comfortable. I have worn these boots for twelve plus hours and still been fine to keep going, I know they are pricey but they earn their keep trust me!
This outfit is a classic example of mixing a bit of high street with high end and some contemporary pieces too. I think the Gucci Bag and the chunky gold watch elevate the rest of the outfit and make the dress look a lot more expensive than it was, which I think is a styling win.
SELF STYLE NOTE: I am very happy in ankle boots and a day dress, must remember this when deciding whether or not I think I will get wear out of an item in these two categories.
