You're welcome, miss Shutterbug.

I've noted in the past that my storyline with denim dresses is about making them every bit as fashionable and fun as any regular dress. * I haven't seen very many sundresses this Summer around my way. I hear shirtdresses are hot right now. If that's true, then the very first picture from Post #73 (first picture, right image) will get some femmes excited about denim shirtdresses. * The second picture (image on the right) has a lovely dress. Not sure if this is something you can get away with wearing at the office or not. While the black Louboutin (I guess they are judging on the red soles) pumps look nice, red espadrilles or red peep-toe would also work. I guess I've started to like red pumps and sandals with blue denim bottoms. * The final dress I want to mention is in the fourth picture (image on the right). That screams semi-formal or evening. This shows that you can share your love of denim dresses into the evening hours with the strapless design. If your shoulders or arms get cold, I'd probably think of wearing a sweater shrug rather than overkill the denim flair with a denim bolero or jumper.

Denim doesn't have to be just for jeans. These designs show it's possible to love your favorite pair of jeans, while having a lovely denim dress you can love just about equally. I like the more chic dresses than a lot of the casual-type dresses. Maybe longer, button-down denim dresses would be lovely for colder weather along with knee-high side-zip boots. Otherwise, there's plenty of reason to be excited about denim dresses for those who love these.

If you like wearing dresses with jeans or pants, you'd somewhat be accused of wearing a "denim tuxedo" wearing a short denim dress with jeans. Denim is almost exclusively casual. However, there are some of those more sophisticated denim clothes like. The dress Shutterbug wore on the previous page (which I've praised dearly) is part of somewhat a sophisticated denim dress. I almost immediately think of those casual, boring, yet comfy button-down dresses when I think of most denim dresses. There just aren't too many exciting and youthful denim dresses unless you're talking about some of those denim polo shirtdresses. Most of you know I love maxi dresses, so I'd even be pleased to see some cute denim maxi dresses or even some nicely-flared long dresses.

The Lanvin/Acne collaboration seems to feature some gorgeous, sophisticated denim dresses. I hope the line influences the high street, so there will be more affordable dresses in the same vein.
