How to Style a Denim Dress

I'm obsessed with denim dresses because they can pretty much transition into any season. Denim will probably NEVER go out of style either and I love investing in pieces that will still be cute a couple years from now. Sometimes it's hard to find a balance between what's trending and what's a closet staple. I truly believe we should invest in both, but mainly the staples that can be styled in many different ways.. like the denim dress!

When I received this dress from Velvet Heart I was so excited because it is truly my style and I could see SO MANY style possibilities! I love that all of Velvet Heart's clothing is soft to the touch and super durable. I wore this dress on a hot afternoon around the city that turned into a humid rainy night (Nashville weather y'all) and I didn't feel sticky or hot or uncomfortable, so I'd say it is definitely functional for all seasons! On this particular day, I chose to pair it with my brown gladiator sandals, gold accessories, and my Cult Gaia bag.

Like I said before, there are SO MANY cool ways to style denim. Here's some other ways I can see myself styling this dress into the upcoming seasons:

1. Paired with a cardigan, scarf and booties
2. Worn as a long tunic with leggings and animal print flats.
3. Tights, boots, and scarf
4. Moto jacket and OTK boots

I'm pretty sure I could come up with a handful of other ways to style this dress, but I think you get the point! As we transition into this Fall season, I encourage you all to get some staple items in your wardrobe. Fall is all about layers! When you buy some staple layering pieces, the outfit possibilities are endless. Let me know if you guys would like to see some future posts showing how staple items (like white tees, cardigans, black jeans, etc.) can be styled in many different ways for fall.
