A denim dress is a closet staple. A wardrobe work-horse. A 2001 iconic moment (yes, I’m referring to *that* Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake all denim look). Denim dress styles change over the years, but they are consistently a key piece of a woman’s wardrobe and 2021 is no different. Let’s chat about denim dress styles for 2021:
My denim midi dress is an older one from Show Me Your Mumu. It’s no longer in stock (sadly!), but this WHBM dress is very similar. With a return to retro 70’s and 90’s fashion trends, one style we’re seeing a lot of for 2021 is button-front denim dresses (especially midi dresses). Dresses with retro accents like statement hardware, chest pockets, and belts are all very stylish this season.
Another thing to look for in a denim dress for this year is an of-the-moment silhouette. In other words, think of a 2021 silhouette you like and find a denim dress that incorporates that. Halter and one shoulder necklines are big this year, and you can find denim dresses like this one shoulder dress that incorporate that 202 fashion trend.
Last thing to note about denim dresses for 2021 – you can find denim dresses to wear to work if you’re into that! With post-lockdown life really impacting work day fashion ( ex. the athflow trend), dressy spins on traditionally casual pieces are everywhere. This designer denim dress is made to be worn to work and it is stunning! This more affordable version would also be great. Add a pair of pumps, gold hoops, and a sleek ponytail and you are office chic!
Below are my favorite denim dresses for 2021. I sorted them into three categories for easy shopping.
