Thanks to the 90’s nostalgia, denim dresses have been injected with some serious edge this season.
The street appeal has been channelled by celebrities like Rihanna who styled her midi dress over wide legs jeans with a Louis Vuitton bag, baseball cap and chain necklaces. Elsewhere we spotted asymmetric hemlines, extra zips, frayed edges from designers like the newcomer Unravel that offered a deconstructed jacket spliced with a jean skirt. The cutout shoulder add dose of cool to the piece, which comes in a vintage-style indigo wash that can be layered over a long white shirt.
Johanna Ortiz offers something a little bit more feminine, but still with plenty of bite. Her layered denim dress sits over a lace white skirt which is held together with a wide burgundy belt. Sacai is one of the best brands for versatility that allows you to play with the silhouette, and in this case the denim dress transforms from shift to A-line in one simple move – unfasten the zips along the sides to reveal a ruffled panel that adds fullness to the skirt.
