The denim trend has been in full swing for the past several decades, from flare leg jeans, to denim jackets to overalls. But with all of those past looks comes the burden of a heavy structure and design in the garment. I believe denim will always be present in the fashion world, but the way this textile is used in design will continue to evolve. The elements of design from shade, to shape, to texture allow for this continuous change of styles.
One recent style that denim fabric has started to take over is that of shift dresses. The simplicity of a shift dress and the casualty of a denim fabric allows for a stylish yet comfortable alternative to other dress styles and fabrics. More specifically, this look is showcasing the use of layering different shades of denim to allure your eye to the complex three dimensional pattern of intricate daisy flowers.
This Fashionista used this daisy denim shift dress to portray a playful yet posh combination. The simplicity in design and the complexity in pattern even each other out to create the perfect eye catcher and leading star of the ensemble. The nautical blue shade of the denim fabric is carried throughout the look to this Fashionista’s Coach cross-body purse. She also has on a pair of unique heeled sandals to mirror the feel of the mini shift dress. To top the look off with a few accessories she is wearing a pair of stud flower earrings and a cuffed leather bracelet. Each accessory complements the statement shift dress without overpowering it.
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I wear dresses because they are an easy solution when you want to be able to throw a stylish outfit on quickly and be comfortable as well. Also, when shift dresses have pockets, it is an added bonus.”
