Looking for the best denim dresses. InStyle's editors have done all of the work and rounded up the most stylish options online, from black denim dresses to mini denim dresses. Read on to find one that's perfect for you.
Denim dresses are one of those wardrobe staples that will never go out of style. Remember when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake showed up to the 2001 AMAs in head-to-toe denim looks? Spears' denim dress was a hot topic of discussion back then, and blue jean dresses are still getting major buzz 18 years later. The only difference is that the details have evolved a bit.
Some of today's most-coveted denim dresses include puffy shoulders, unexpected cutouts, western-inspired stitching, and cool acid-wash finishes. The best part is that they're versatile enough to wear just about anywhere. You can throw one on during a chill weekend (hey, you never know who you'll bump into while running errands), or dress one up with statement jewelry.
