Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaDenim Inspirational Image

Denim has been and forever will be a part of our lives and let’s face it, most of us have a serious section dedicated to it in our closets. But we aren’t just talking about jeans; we mean all the tops, chambray button-downs, and jackets that flood our closets in multiple shades of blue for the perfect Canadian tuxedo.

Now that the warm weather has finally to stick around, it’s time for us to indulge in the summer months and take every chance that we can to show a little leg in our favorite summer denim dresses. The fact is, denim serves great for every purpose and function. Because it comes in an array of shades and styles, it’s an easy way to go from a casual day to sultry evening in a matter of minutes. Here are some great denim dress looks to inspire your next outfit.

1. Denim OverallsThe Overalls

You might feel totally nostalgic when wearing regular denim overalls but as a dress, overalls are playful and girly and will have people complimenting you every time. The great thing about an overall dress is you can put a top underneath and create different looks depending on what style you feel like.  We love the look of a darker denim wash paired with a flirty off-the-shoulder top and playful accessories like a statement bag or sunnies.

5. Denim Dress Evening

Evening Attire

Whoever said denim is strictly for casual affairs clearly hasn’t tried this look. Bringing class and elegance to a denim dress all lies in the style with a longer length and a sophisticated neckline. A pop of color on the feet, a statement clutch and full confidence will make people forget you’re even wearing denim.

The off the shoulder trend is a summer staple and brings ease and comfort wherever you go. A denim off the shoulder dress is a must-have when travelling, whether it’s across the ocean or just a weekend cottage getaway. It’s one of those pieces where you can throw on a strappy sandal and elevate your look, or throw on a straw hat and gladiator sandals for a stroll through town.
