Denim shirt dresses are a classy, modern way to work a little 90s into your wardrobe. They can be dressed down with a plaid shirt tied around the waist, or dressed up with some power heels and a clutch. And not these dresses have the same look, so it’s kosher to own more than one of these dresses. There’s variety in thickness, wash, and style, that make these dresses easy to match with and throw on when you’re on the go.
Here is our top picks for the trending Dresses 2019.
For those going for the cool look, this skater shirt dress is the perfect combination of something gnarly and feminine. The tie-waist at first glance will give the appearance of a checked shirt tied around the waist, but it’s really just an extension of the dress, meant to add a bit of shape to the loose construction of the dress. With a collar and cuffs, the dress gives off a tough-guy attitude.
For a more feminine look that says it’s time for brunch with the boyfriend’s parents, try CURRENT/ELLIOT’s belted denim shirt dress. Its pale blue wash is unassuming but stands out just enough to make the impression of a calm and collected demeanor. The removable belt is great for cinching at the waist to create an hourglass silhouette, but the pointed collar will help draw people’s attention to the face. This is the perfect dress for casual but classy events.
Brand: Michael Stars
With a little creativity, this is the perfect all-season dress for looking stylish no matter the time of year. With a low cinch waist, this dress looks best on those with athletic builds and bottom-heavy shapes. The lower neckline draws attention to the chest, so this dress is perfect to pair with a nice pendant necklace. Because of its shorter hem length, this is the perfect dress to rock at the beach. But to transition it to the colder months, throw on some fleece-lined tights, a burgundy knit scarf, and some deep chocolate booties.
Brand: Brave Soul
With a light tonal shift from sky blue to a mid-tone blue, this ombre denim shirt dress’ subtle design will make people double take.

This dress, paired with a pair of riding boots, is a great option for a trip to the coffee shop or even a day of running errands.
Brand: Lauren Ralph Lauren
This ankle-length denim shirt dress is perfect for dressy but casual occasions or just for a cold day when you’re looking for more coverage. It’s deep blue color and belted waist add another dimension of class.

Brand: True Religion
This light- and mid-wash faded blue denim shirt dress has just enough pizazz to work on its own. Paired with a pair of neutral flats or a low heel, this dress works perfectly for a warm day. Layered with a fitted long-sleeve shirt underneath, this dress can easily be transitioned into other seasons. With pockets on the chest, this dress is better suited for those looking to add volume on the top.
This winter denim dress takes on the appearance of an old-school nightgown. The collar-less look, below-the-knee hem, and mid-thigh high side slits give the dress a laidback but high fashion 70s look to it. Made from lightweight cotton, it’s the perfect dress for the spring months and early fall. Paired with gladiator sandals, it’s ready to be worn around town.
This bohemian denim shirt dress has just the right amount of embroidery for an introduction to bohemian fashion. The high waist and slightly gathered fabric draws attention up toward the face, but the high-low hem will elongate the legs as well. Worn with strappy sandals, this is a great dress to wear on a trip to someplace with a California vibe.
This light-wash blue, lightweight denim dress takes the look of wearing a boyfriend’s button-up to a new level of feminine. The oversized cuff with four buttons makes the dress look almost like a coat, but the closer fit on the body clearly shows it’s a dress. Worn with sneakers, heels, or boots, this dress is extremely versatile.
Brand: INC International Concepts
For a slightly more country-western look, this winter shirt dress alternates shades of blue while maintaining a faded look throughout. The darker elbow pads give the impression of a classy, traditional look mixed with all the sass of the South. And the straight lines on the front and back of the dress will elongate anyone’s figure. Paired with knee-high boots, this is the perfect fall look.
