This spring, your favorite pair of jeans will undoubtedly take a backseat to a fresh crop of denim dresses. Easy and breezy, these frocks will transition seamlessly from day into evening and understandably become your go-to piece for the season. Not to mention they are quite festival-friendly. Hello, Coachella!
Some of our top picks contain kitschy details like overall straps, chiffon paneling and pleats for the frill-lovers. Take solace in simplicity? If that was a “yes,” then the A-line silhouettes, lengthy skirts and menswear-inspired sheaths are for you. Whatever your style, there’s no denying that these choices are all grown-up, which means there’s no risk of recreating fashion disasters from junior high.

ASOS, Dip Dye Pinafore Dress ($58.19)
Rebecca Taylor, Fluted Sleeve Dress ($295)
Ladylike tailoring gives this denim dress modern edge. We love that it comes with a belt to show off your shape.
Forever 21, Bolt Studded Denim Dress ($22.80)
Who doesn’t adore a sleeveless shirt dress? This lightweight denim is perfect for layering.
Motel, Tinkerbell Shirt Dress ($90)
Yes, we’re digging the acid wash. Don’t call it a comeback!
Topshop, Moto Bleach Contrast Dress ($76)
This one is just begging to be adorned. We’re thinking a chunky gold statement necklace will pair well. Toss on some booties and you’re ready to hit the road.
ASOS, Pinafore Denim Dress (63.18)
Channel your inner school-girl with this sweet number. Skip the oxford shirt and opt for a lace bandeau and metallic sandals for a “good girl gone bad” vibe.
3.1. Phillip Lim, Chiffon-Paneled Denim Shirt Dress ($650)
The light denim and chiffon play quite well off one another. We’ve died and gone to textural heaven!
Alice + Olivia, Harper Pleated-Skirt Dress (368)
Who said denim couldn’t be classy? The drop waist is made new again and we aren’t mad at it!
Diesel, Pilklon ($328)
This dress belongs at a music festival, but the boots above are giving us too much of a western vibe. Glide around the great outdoors in gladiator sandals and pile on the bracelets for that boho feel.
ASOS, Denim Pinafore Dress ($58.19)
Relaxed perfection. Work it as a swim suit cover-up or pair a chiffon blouse underneath for a dressier feel. Nude sandals and a floppy hat will complete the look.
Tell us, SB’s! Will you be rocking a denim dress this spring?
