While there’s no question that jeans are a favorite fashion staple among celebs and jeans are showing no signs of losing popularity, there’s another denim style we’ve been noticing more and more. We’re talking about denim dresses—specifically long denim dresses. While this silhouette is somewhat “tricky,” celebrities like Rihanna and models like Romee Strijd are proving that the dress deserves a place in our closets this season.
We discovered that the key to wearing one is trying out a few styling ideas, as demonstrated by celebs. First, wear a button-down dress open over a slip dress, giving it the appearance of a jacket. Next, layer the dress over pants for a fashion-forward look. And if you want to dress it up, pair one with pumps to elevate the look. Want to see how celebs are wearing their long denim dresses?
