Return of the LDD (little denim dress)

Selfridges’ new denim mecca is proof that while denim never died, it’s hotter than ever. Denim dresses have steadily been gaining in popularity since Celine and Chanel produced some killer pieces a couple of summers ago – one very minimalistic and another with a full, swishy skirt. And now dungarees and tunics are big fashion news.

The best thing is that much like jeans, there’s a denim dress to suit every body shape, from fitted minimalistic forms for athletic girls, flattering a-line and skater shapes for pear-shaped girls, retro numbers with cinched-in waists for apple-shaped ladies and western styles for pretty much everyone…just  to name a few.

I love the way you can dress an LDD up or down and tap into the latest trends whilst remaining safely stylish. Try teaming a cropped top under a denim tunic for just the right amount of nineties or edge, or a light denim number for a breezy summer look. How do you wear yours?

Here’s some celebrity inspiration and below, in case you’re interested, three looks I put together from random things in my wardrobe within 5 minutes…to prove the See by Chloe splurge dress I purchased after some deliberation, is indeed as versatile as I promised myself!
