When you pair a feminine, flowing dress with edgy denim, you're striking the perfect balance between casual and elegant. It's a great transitional style that can take you from day to night with some clever accessorising and most importantly, it's comfortable whilst being effortlessly stylish. What more could a cosy fashionista want?!

Depending on whether you add a pair of heels or not, the ensemble is appropriate for an event or a night out, and with sneakers, you're instantly ready for a brunch with the girls

You can unbutton your dress and tuck half of it loosely into your waistband, or you can work a boxy, oversize silhouette with an added jacket or sweater.

Take a look below at a few dress and jean inspirations and take not of the three cardinal rules you must follow in order to become a street style fashionista yourself!

Like most trends, wearing a dress over jeans may seem difficult to execute but when trying to nail the trend, it's important to bear these 3 key points in mind.

Keep it  light

The biggest fear when wearing dresses over jeans is that you will end up looking bulky. To avoid this, choose floaty lightweight frocks rather than anything too chunky and accessorise with delicate, ladylike shoes and bags. Stick to a skinny or straight-leg style, rather than a flare to keep the silhouette as simple as possible.

Try the look with an asymmetric hem

Styling frocks over trousers is all about maximalism so don't try and make it work with clean lines and neutral colours. Play around with longline blazers, bright hues, ankle-length denim and an asymmetric hem.

Go for classic tailoring

Pair a tailored, button-up frock with jeans for a chic contrast. The classic style of the dress will perfectly offset the denim and make for a seriously effortless look.
