It seems like every time we glance at our Instagram feeds, there’s a new denim trend hitting the street style scene. But lately, we’ve spotted one that’s surprised us. Instead of skinny jeans, denim skirts, or even jean jackets, fashion girls have been reaching for their denim dresses. And they’re putting a fresh spin on them via some fun styling tricks.

First off, they’re choosing cool styles. With bustier silhouettes and dresses with puffy sleeves, the number one way to make the challenging piece feel cool is via an on-trend silhouette. Next, they’re adding in unexpected accessories. Instead of your typical sandals, why not try vibrant heels embellished with feathers? Or even over-the-knee boots? We’re loving these new takes on styling a denim dress.
