This is definitely a trend that plus size brands have really got on board with and the denim within the plus size market has hugely improved in recent years.

A classic dark wash is the smartest way to rock denim, we love the pearl shade buttons on this that really brighten this earthy blue shade. This will go great with black so don’t be afraid to rock with black jeans.

Light wash denim is definitely channeling 90’s style this season. This is super casual so either button through or leave open with a white vest top an team with jeans. This wash is GREAT with white denim jeans too.

Another great light wash denim shirt, this one here from Forever 21 Plus is slightly longer than the Torrid shirt and a slightly darker shade. That’s the beauty with denim, the variety of washes. Each brand, each shirt will be slightly different so there’s always a reason to shop!

One word… OBSESSED! Our editor, Rivkie Baum has multiple denim shirt dresses. They are super versatile, say to wear, can be dressed up or down and always look on trend. Shirt dresses are major this season and the slight swing on this silhouette gives it that little style twist. A perfect plus size dress!

Trust ASOS Curve to take the trend and sprinkle some style magic onto it. We love that ASOS Curve makes plus size cool and nothing is cooler than this blocked panelled denim shirt. The length is great as it will look great with leggings or skinny jeans and the varying shades of denim means this plus size shirt will work just as well with white, black or blue jeans!

Another ASOS Curve winner, this oversized shirt dress is bang on trend and so easy to wear. Whether you’re opting for bare legs or rocking over skinnies or leggings, this is the shirt dress that will live through season after season. Layer it up on cooler days with knitwear or rock on a super sunny day when you need something loose and cool. For those wanting to create an hour glass silhouette simply throw a belt on with this look or keep it vintage and use a scarf to cinch it. Button up to the collar and layer some gold trinket necklaces and chunky ringers for that East London look – see versatile!

Because let’s face it, not everyone likes a shirt and that’s ok! In which case, try your hand at this cheeky little number and grab this denim tee from New Look’s rebranded Curve range. Again, super easy to layer with and a real, through on and chill piece.

But if you do want to join the denim shirt gang, New Look have you covered here too.

Super classic, long denim shirt with long sleeve and two breast pockets. Because for years everyone feared pockets on plus size boobs, but let’s face it, you have them, they rock, it doesn’t matter. Style and classic silhouettes like a denim shirt are for all.

Love this shirt. Snap front fastening – Check! Faded Acid  Wash – Check, Tab sleeves – Check. This one has it all. The fading and acid wash means it will work great across a host of denim jeans from grey to white and classic blue. Team with some tan boots or trainers it works with it all.

Another cute shirt from Fashion to Figure, we love the high low silhouette on this shirt. If you like things to cover your bum then this is the denim shirt for you. We love the side tab tie sleeves too – so much more secure than spending all day rolling them up. Team with leggings for laid back style.

Most denim shirts on the market are a classic, long sleeve, Levi original style look, so we love the rolled, short sleeve on this shirt from Macy’s. In colder months try popping a long sleeve tee in a block shade or a bretton stripe underneath, or even a polo neck to make this work all the way through winter.
