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!
