If you're anything like me, you're struggling to decide what to wear every morning thanks to the Great British weather. One moment it feels like spring, and the next, we're back in the depths of winter.

Denim is always the answer to even the trickiest of wardrobe dilemmas, and we've already decided on the Zara Marine jeans as our shape of the season (I've got three pairs and counting...). But what about dresses?

A good denim dress really will be a staple of your spring capsule wardrobe. You can pair it so effortlessly with ankle boots or your best white trainers, switching to heels for a smart dinner date.

There are a lot of amazing options out there, and you might be tempted by bestsellers from M&S, Zara and Phase Eight. But for me, Karen Millen's long sleeve denim dress is the one I'm adding to my shopping basket. It's the perfect mid-blue wash, and features a button down front and patch pockets.

A midi length is universally flattering, and celebrities ranging from Holly Willoughby to Jennifer Lopez all have denim shirt dresses in their wardrobes.

Karen Millen has quite the denim dress collection. Amanda Holden recently wore a mesh panelled denim midi dress by the brand, and there are some designs with very Balmain-esque buttons, or even intricate bead embellishment. Who said denim is only for dressed-down days?
