Your Favorite Summer Dress Was Totally Reimagined

We're the first to admit that denim dresses can seem monotonous — the variation from one to the next is sometimes so minute that we often find ourselves stuck in a denim dress hole. That being said, not all of them are identical twins. There are some really dope iterations out on the market that are barely even siblings. Ahead, we've decoded the best denim dresses out there this summer — from the silhouettes you need to know about to the details that make each frock special. Now go on and treat dress yo'self.

The Grown-Up Pinafore

Yes, this childhood throwback is a super cute option for adults, too. The best part about a pinafore is that it transcends seasons — wear one solo now, arms bare, and later with a turtleneck underneath.

The Every Freakin' Day Frock

Denim shouldn't be reserved for casual Fridays. Try a work-appropriate denim dress for all those MTWTs that will look just as rad on the weekends paired with sneakers.

The Dressed Up Jersey

The beauty of a t-shirt dress is that you can wear it as a t-shirt or a dress (duh). Throw this baby on with pants and on hotter days, wear it alone — the baggy silhouette will counter the short length.

The Best Western

Let your denim dress stand out with a lil' somethin' extra, like fringed detailing. The pocket on this frock makes things more memorable, without making you feel like it's too memorable.

The Classic Throwback

Front-button denim skirts really wooed us, but really, it's all about the front button denim dress. The fit and flare shape is super flattering and the collar adds real polish.

The Grecian Goddess

Denim is inherently cool, so indigo dresses feel even more special in ladylike cuts. If you want to go feminine without being girly, you've met your match.

The Living On The Fray Dress

We turn to distressed hems on any denim piece for an undone, casual look. With four points o' fray, this otherwise plain frock has got style on lock.

The Over-Anything Overall

The lowest-fuss denim dress in existence. Slept in your old t-shirt? Have ten minutes to get ready? Pop this baby over that tee and run out the door.

The Cold Shoulder Frock

It's no news that off-the-shoulder is a big trend right now. Take the boho trend to an edgier place with more structured fabric, like denim.

The You Better Work Shirt Dress

Kin to the shirtdress, this iteration gives a loose and cool vibe that still feels buttoned-up.

The Kitchen Sink Dress

This dress has a little bit of everything — a pinafore top, a feminine bottom, retro detailing, and a midi length. If you liked everything you just saw, you might as well jump on this bandwagon, too.
