If you’re a regular reader, you know that at Rank & Style, we love denim. It’s the backbone of Western fashion culture, and we’re always thrilled to see the new ways designers are delivering the material every season. 

But another thing we love is a good balance of polish and comfort, which is why we're huge suckers for a denim dress. They provide us with a simple, one-and-done option that we can wear with pretty much every pair of shoes in our closets, and they're also one of the few styles that can deliver equal parts comfort, ease, and style—all must-haves in our book. 

This season, we've been on the hunt for unique denim dresses that can handle a variety of occasions and wardrobe needs, and we've found everything from trendy puff sleeves to asymmetrical seams and frayed hems. With such great results, we thought it only fair to share the best finds with our readers. Ahead, we're doing just that by bringing you a roundup of the best denim dresses on the internet, with each pick backed by our data-driven algorithm.
