Can you believe September's just around the corner?? Every single year it's as if there's a fast forward button on July and August, and before you know it, it's after Summer and time to come up with all kinds of smart tricks to wear your Summer dresses just a little bit longer. Luckily, this year's trend of topping your favourite jeans with a breezy dress makes that a whole lot easier! It's one of my personal favourite trends of the moment, but I do admit it can feel a bit counter intuitive to pair two pieces of clothing you're used to wearing separately. But in the spirit of trying out new things, I suggest to adopt it right now, 'cause the dress plus denim trend is here to stay!
1 / STRATEGIC CUTS
This is the most important trick to keep in mind to rock a dress plus denim outfit: go with a dress that has cuts and slits on strategic places. The whole idea is to end up with an outfit that looks summery, but still feels nice & warm - perfect for those after Summer evenings! By showing a peek of your denim your entire look will feel so much lighter, not to mention super practical to move around in. And thumbs up if your dress is sleeveless and has delicious eyelet carvings that show a bit of (sun kissed!) skin.
2 / PASTEL PLEASURES
Despite my general love of pastel colours, I tend to find them a bit hard to style in a sophisticated not-too-candy-ish way. But for this particular trend, pastel colours (such as the soft pink of this dress) are actually a bonus, because they will make your roughed up denim look fresh & sunny, no questions asked!
3 / BEST OF SUMMER ACCESSORIES
And speaking of sunny, if you want to celebrate the after Summer right, why not steer the eye in the right direction and add the best of Summer accessories to complete your dress plus denim look: a straw hat, colourful scarf, dainty anklet and rings, and embroidered floral flats are totally the way to go!
Have you already tried out the dress plus denim trend? Don't you think it's just perfect for September? :)
