This is denim like we’ve never quite seen it. While many designers have put a romantic twist on our favorite fabric, Dubai’s quirky multi-concept brand Sauce presented something fresh with their floral embroidered chambray collection, featuring a range of skirts and dresses that read as hyper-modern, while still kind of making you go “aaaww.” We knew Dubai was a little bit ahead of the fashion curve, but this Sauce constantly drives this point home. Our favorites from the collection are below—and yes, they’ll ship to the states!

We love a silk or cotton dress for our globe-trotting adventures just as much as the next girl, but a more edgy, durable, playful option? Denim dresses. We love the idea of pairing a chambray dress with our metallic jewelry, or a floral printed denim dress with some cute beach sandals. When you’re planning your next escape, plan for one of these super cute frocks to come along in your suitcase.

Ladies, feeling flirty? Got a hot date this weekend? Forget the LBD! Think “cool and casual”. Opt for a chic denim dress that will turn every head in the room (good insurance in case that date doesn’t work out after all). We’re loving this sexy deep neckline denim dress with criss-cross lattice back straps. You’ll fall in love with the price tag too: it’s less than $70.

Colored denim isn’t going anywhere this spring. The opposite is true. Brands are releasing colored denim in so many choices, it’s becoming almost impossible to pick. One brand that’s not helping to quell this denim-collecting desire is Bella Dahl. But it’s not just the colors that have us craving their jeans. They pride themselves on soft-touch fabrications, meaning you can spend all day in their spectrum of brights and you’ll have both your style and your comfort down. Aside from brightly colored denim shorts, they’re also offering a few wishlist-worthy chambray pieces, like a strapless dress and chambray lounge pants with a braided denim belt. We snuck a peak at their spring 2012 collection and posted some of our favorite styles below.
