Mastering the All-Denim Ensemble


If you aren’t using your denim style dresses for an all-denim outfit, then what are you doing? The idea of an all-denim outfit might conjure up images of the early 2000s—but fear not, this trend has evolved. When done right, an all-denim ensemble exudes confidence and contemporary chic. Consider pairing a denim mini with a slightly oversized denim jacket for a cool, layered look. The key is to play with different washes and textures to create depth and interest.


For example, the LIONESS Smokeshow Denim Strapless Midi Dress and the REFORMATION Eugenia Strapless Denim Dress were created for fall layering. Even when worn alone, it’s perfect suitable for a wide range of events and climates. Add statement accessories like a chunky belt or bold jewelry to break up the denim and add a touch of individuality. With the right styling, an all-denim outfit can be a powerful fashion statement that showcases your sartorial prowess. Plus, having more denim style dresses like these on hand could be your winning style trick.
