Wear or Die: Denim Dress Edition

If you love denim dresses, this edition of Wear or Die will be right up your, er, ranch. If you don’t love denim dresses, on the other hand… well, look at it this way: at least it’s better that death, right?

Death or denim, you see, is the choice that lies before you today, readers. You must choose one of the two dresses above to wear (in public, remember: no “Oh, I’ll just wear it around the house,” answers – that doesn’t count!), or you must die. Simple, isn’t it?

So, which one will you choose?

Option A: D&G silk denim-print pussybow dress
Option B: Democracy of Nevermind denim skirt jumper

    I would never usually wear a denim dress out in public but I have to say I don’t hate either of these. Not enough to die over them at least.

    I would chose option A because it’s unusual. Option B is just too dull for me.

    I actually quite like the first option, apart from the fact that it is made of denim… But I guess I would go with the dress B and just wont bother to button it up all the way, so that the sight of my cleavage would distract people (or at least men) from the fact that I’m wearing a denim dress.

    Option A. The shape is actually nice, and the denim isn’t as hideous as Option B.

    Option B definitely. I would wear it with cowboy boots, a nice belt and maybe a hat. Yeah… it could work.
    Option A has just too much of everything. The bow is too big, the skirt too long and too ruffly (ruffled? What’s the word?), and what’s that on the sleeves? Sheer fabric or white bleached denim. Anyway not my style.

    The D&G dress is actually quite pretty. I wouldn’t mind wearing that out!

    If B was darker, I’d like it. But as it stands, A.

    A is kinda cute. B looks suspiciously like stonewashed denim. So, the D&G one.

    Definitely Option A – more unusual and would look nice with bright accessories!!

    I’d have to say option B, despite it being acid-washed denim. I am sure it could be styled well, whereas A is just so overwhelming.

    Another tough one. I’d have to go with B, because A is just too fouffy for me.

    Option A looks like the kind of thing these girls at my elementary school who were from a very, very religious family had to wear all the time, only with an added denim scarf. Those girls were both dull and irritating. Bad memories. Option B would probably go unnoticed in my neck of the woods, as that sort of thing is quite popular here. And like someone said above, at least you could accessorize B to take the focus off it’s denimness. B it is.

    I only thing denim I own are jeans and I haven’t worn those in years. I choose Option B because it has less denim than A and is at least a (just) recognisable plain style. A looks like several terrible accidents combined.

    Option A. I really don’t like the bleached look of B.

    The sight of A prompted a spontaneous eukh from this part of the world.

    Not so far from me lives a small but staunch community of Brethren, and you see the women shopping in the nearby supermarket. They adore denim, the younger ones, anyway (their elders go for navy polyester). Since they’re not allowed to wear trousers or short skirts, they opt for several metres of denim in the vague shape of a skirt, and flap along like ships under sail. The Denim Skirt is accessorised with a headscarf (female heads must be covered), clumpy shoes (stylish ones apparently being the work of the devil) and several small children.

    I’d rather go naked than don this dress.

    Option B. At least it wouldn’t be ugly if it wasn’t made out of denim. Option A was just made uglier because it was made of denim. It was ugly anyway.

    I like Option A…it is a little more girlie and would look cute with a pair of cowboyish boots. I don’t like the bleach look of B. :/

    B. I don’t know what A is trying to be but it’s hideous.

    Both are hideous but to avert death I’d choose B. Despite it’s bleached look, it is the lesser of the 2 evils as Option A has too many ruffles, denim puff sleeves and is an ackward length that just would suit me.

    Option A by far, the bow destracts the eye from the terrible unfinished hem.

    Option A please. It at least looks like it wants to be stylish. B just looks like trailer-park fashion.

    Definate B….would look good with a golden hued skin, silver jewelry with turquoise, flowing natural hair…

    Option A-Option B looks like something that has been lurking in the back of someone’s closet since the 80’s.

    I would definitely go for the first one, and try and pull off a lady gagaish look. The first really really isn’t that bad.

    Definitely B. I think it is workable, with wavy hair, cute accessories and shoes even if it is a little trailer park… A just looks like 5 different outfits smooshed together into one. I just think denim color + tan + ruffles = yack city.

    My initial response was “Option A” because it was a better shade of denim and it was more eye-catching. But then I got to thinking: there’s way more that you could do with Option B. You could wear it with black tights, a braided belt, brown leather boots, or just about anything else and make it WAY better looking. Option B, final answer.

    option B. at least you can still pair it with the right accessories like a nice blazer/jacket and an eye-catching belt, black tights and boots to distract people from the fact that you are wearing a denim dress.

    I absolutely hate the first one, but I don’t mind the second. I wouldn’t wear it, but I’m sure it would look good on someone.

    Usually I don’t wear denim dresses but I like it. Maybe for some time I would use it and wear those denim in the public for a change.

    Both of the denim are cute but I prefer to option B it’s nice and sexy the first are so formal.
