Despite the icy currents blowing from your office building's robust A/C system, it's actually hot outside, meaning it's time to swap your go-to pair of jeans for something a little airier. A dress is the obvious choice, but a breezy floral number has become all too expected. You could pull on a pair of shorts, but those of the denim variety aren't always office-appropriate. A denim dress, however, combines the casual and cool elements of your tried-and-true blues with a summery silhouette that'll let your legs breathe.
A requisite frock for the warmer months ever since the early '90s, the denim dress is genius in that it requires minimal styling effort: It can be worn alone to highlight pocket and button details or layered over a pretty blouse or color-pop T-shirt. It can also be worn with everything from slides to boots. The best part? You can wear it into fall over knits or tights.
Below, shop 23 denim dresses that range from mini to maxi and from light wash to dark.
