Like many of you, we are obsessed with the fashion and style of the members of the South Korean girl group Blackpink. Recently, Lisa posted a photo on her Weibo account wearing an Alexander McQueen asymmetric denim midi dress on the Chinese girl group elimination reality show Youth With You, where she serves as the dance mentor. We fell for the look instantly but unfortunately, the dress is sold out on the McQueen site. Inspired, we went in search of 10 other denim dresses that you can wear in Singapore comfortably, without being bogged down by weight and heat.
For those who want to pick up the exact dress that Lisa wore, it is unfortunately sold out on the Alexander McQueen website. A close second, however, is this mini dress version. The shorter length also makes the dress more tropical weather-friendly. Finish the look with a pair of boots and a chunky bracelet.
Launched as part of the Spring ’21 collection, this RedValentino mini dress features whimsical floral laser-printed motifs that add a delicate contrasting touch to the denim fabric. Pair this with a pair of zip-up boots and a crossbody bag.
Denim need not be in the usual indigo wash. As evidenced by this Victoria. Victoria Beckham boxy T-shirt dress, a denim dress can look clean and ethereal when made in white. Play off the laidback qualities of the frayed edges with a pair of espadrille flats or go chunky with dad sneakers.
For those who love the structured silhouette of a denim jacket, look no further than this black Ksubi number. The dark wash in conjunction with the slim fit cutting will make any wearer look slimmer and taller – paired with a pair of black boots, of course. We recommend pairing with chunky gold hoops for a dramatic effect.
For those who are concerned with denim being too heavy and stifling, Free People is here to change your mind with this lightweight mini creation. The shift dress silhouette makes it especially roomy and breezy and can cover a food baby too. Accentuate the V-neckline with a pendant necklace.
Unlike the other shopping curations in the list, En Saison employs denim in an unexpected way to create this boho puff-sleeved, embroidered design. Accessories should be kept to a minimum to let the dress shine, so just complete the look with simple stud earrings, a mini bag and slingback heels.
This Shoshanna iteration is a workplace-friendly option that will keep you cool in the air-conditioned office space. While it might look like a tight-fitting bodycon dress, the stretched chambray material and smocked elastic at the back of the waist ensures that it wouldn’t be uncomfortably tight. Finish with rings and pumps.
Denim jackets and dresses are most commonly made in boxy cuts that aren’t the most flattering to the figure. That is why the addition of a belt makes this Off-White dress a genius design as it can cinch the waist to create an hourglass shape. Try pairing the look with chunky boots, sneakers or strappy heels.
If you’re one who goes on romantic dates after work, there’s no need to rush home to change with this Retrofete denim dress. We suggest swapping your work pumps for a pair of strappy sandals and adding some accessories such as a necklace, bracelet and earrings with a cute clutch in tow.
This LoveShackFancy dress is made for weekends by the beach or brunch with girlfriends. We love the girly, flouncy skirt contrasting against the structured-looking bustier design. Click on a pair of heels and dainty hoop earrings to finish.
