New Look // How to Style a Denim Dress for Spring

One of the best pieces I bought this year was this simple, button-down denim dress. A frugal shopper, I scored it on sale at Wet Seal just before they closed down, and despite the price tag, it’s a quality piece I’ve worn a dozen times already since I bought it in late January. I’ve worn it to work with tights during winter, and now that it’s a wet, chilly spring here, it’s still the perfect casual work look—with a spring upgrade!

I love any piece of clothing that is versatile enough to wear through all seasons, all year round. This is one of those pieces. I rolled up the sleeves for a more casual look: just fold the entire sleeve over by half, so that the crease ends up just above your elbow, then fold the sleeve in half again, tucking it in securely. Of course, to wear this dress for spring I ditched the tights, and brought in some light-color accessories!

This gorgeous bag is another thrifty find! I fell in love with this bag immediately when I saw it and knew it had to be mine. The wicker, the heart shape—it’s just perfect. As an added bonus, it fits so much without looking like a huge bag. It fits my camera with a telephoto lens on it! Cutest makeshift camera bag ever!

Because it’s spring, I wanted to accessorize with flowers, and found a little bow to tie around my bag handle. It’s actually the belt from a new dress I bought, repurposed! I think it’s the perfect cute accent to make this bag even prettier, and I like how the colors play with the neutral denim. Lastly, my new favorite shoes, from Seychelles.

Hope you liked this look! A denim dress is a wonderful workhorse piece of clothing, and one like this will definitely become a staple in your closet. I know it has in mine! It’s also a great desk-to-dinner look!
