Best spring summer 2015 denim dresses under £40
The Spring/Summer 2015 catwalks were filled with every kind of denim fashion imaginable, as the big designers went to town with the blue stuff. In particular there were some really interesting denim dresses, with something to suit just about every style and occasion.
Patchwork and contrast panels were seen at Gucci, Comme des Garcons, Chloe and Herve Leger, and darkest indigo denim and sharp tailoring went down the runways at Proenza Schouler and Derek Lam. Pale blue chambray sun dresses were shown by Valentino and Stella McCartney, while seventies-inspired faded and distressed shirt dresses hit the catwalk at Balmain and Saint Laurent.
If you don’t have a grand to spend on a denim dress, don’t worry. I’ve done the legwork for you and picked out six of the best designer-inspired high street versions, and my dress picks in the picture above are all under £40. From left to right:
- Missguided Jaimelynn lightwash denim shift dress, £20. Ideal for sporty or casual chic looks.
- Ines de la Fressange for Uniqlo long sleeve denim dress, £39.90. An instant classic, lovely attention to detail.
- Uniqlo denim long sleeve dress in worn look denim, £39.90. Clean lines, can be dressed up or down and very Alexa Chung.
- Forever 21 denim floral crossback dress, reduced to £13.99 in the sale. Buy this Stella McCartney lookalike before it sells out.
- Bellfield colour block denim shift dress, now £26.00 in the sale at Dorothy Perkins.
- Sisley blue dress with metallic panel, down to £24.00 in the ASOS sale. Not strictly denim, but the perfect shade of blue.
The best sale award for denim dresses has to go to ASOS – have a trawl and you might find something in your size for as little as £5.
Best denim dress in larger sizes, from 12 up to size 32, has to be the Marisota lyocell dress for £35. Nicely made and a very flattering cut.
And for the best low-priced range in general, have a look at the small but perfectly formed range of denim dresses at New Look. They have everything from an off-the shoulder bardot neckline number to a darkest indigo tunic to a collarless 3/4 sleeve shirt dress, starting at just £17.99.
See anything you like the look of? Or will you be rocking the double denim look instead this spring?
