Fall Essential: The Little Denim Dress

By Ann of Holier than Now

With Fashion Week coming here in New York, quite a few of us are closet-deep in outfit planning and trying to rustle up ways to look our best – without dying of discomfort.  Sounds a little like Back to School, right?  In either case, enter what’s sure to be a Fall essential: the LDD.

Like its fancier older sister, Little Black, there’s a Little Denim Dress to suit every figure, budget and style.  But Little Denim’s arguably a better investment; after all, being comfortable AND hard-working is in her … jeans.

Investing in a denim dress means you have a piece that works for school, work and into evening.  Dress it down with a cardigan and boots or up with a black jacket and  platform heel.  Many are practically wrinkle-proof, which makes them perfect for days where you’re running to and fro and don’t have time to change before cocktails.

Here are four great denim dresses to get you started:

1. Pray for Mother Nature Cuts Like A Knife Denim Dress ($216)

2. Rebecca Taylor Quilted Denim Dress ($227.50 – 30% off)

3. Club Monaco Sabrina Scoop Neck Denim Dress ($189)

4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Lightweight Denim Dress ($298)


Will you be stocking up on denim dresses for the Fall?

    I love this trend and totally rocked a vintage denim dress last week, check it out on my blog! I appreciate your styling inspiration ideas, I need all the help I can get. 🙂 I’ve always thought of my denim dress as a summer style, but the cardi/boots idea is gold.

    I LOVE the tiered Pray For Mother Nature dress! I think I need to go find an old denim jumpsuit lying in my closet and turn it into a dress!
