I used to believe there was nothing better than a LBD (little black dress). That is, until I discovered the power of the LDD (little denim dress). While a LBD tends to give an air of power and class, a LDD is playful and flirty, and can be worn a million different ways! I found this chambray cutie at Charlotte Russe – for only $30 I might add – and the second I tried it on, I knew I would never want to take it off. Not only does it have the popular cold shoulder trend, but the sleeves are ruffled, and the fit is as comfortable as can be. It’s ridiculously flattering and has infinite style options.
For this post, I’m sharing two ways to wear this chambray piece – dressed up and dressed down – but let your creativity take you for a ride and tell me how you might wear it!
Dressing something down and casual doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Along with my totally over-worn Adidas Superstars, I chose some fun bangles and cuffs to layer for some sparkly arm candy. I also grabbed my favorite Chloé Faye dupe and a pair of oversized marble sunglasses to spice it up. I can see myself wearing this on a day of wandering around a new city, to run some errands with my boyfriend, or even to a sports event!
Dressing chambray up is way more fun than I expected. I didn’t want to draw away from the piece itself too much, so I kept it simple. I picked my favorite pair of block heel sandals from last year (similar here) and added a bright, candy-colored necklace for that necessary pop of brightness! Styling it this way, I could totally wear it to Sunday brunch, to the rooftop bar with my girlfriends, or to a networking event.
The best part about this dress is that because it’s denim, you can think of endless options, just like with your favorite pair of jeans. Layer a sweater over it, wear bright shoes with it, add a belt to it, and most importantly … have fun with it! You can’t go wrong with denim!
