I understand my cousin’s motivation for pairing the two garments. The denim adds warmth, modesty, and a utilitarian feel to a frock. I love how dresses flatter my figure, but hate how they restrict my movements. With a pair of jeans underneath, I can sit as unladylike as I please.

Slim, dark denim works under a variety of dress types: shirt dress, slinky dress, a-line dress, full-skirted dress, knit dress – as long as the hem hits above the knee. I’m a fan. What about you? Do you wear denim under a dress?
