Madewell Raw Hem Denim Shift Dress

Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m here today with an inexpensive and versatile piece to consider adding to your closet…

This drapey denim dress is a dream to wear. It’s one of those pieces that automatically conveys an effortless laid back vibe. But yet you still look polished when you wear it.

Plus, this denim dress takes on an updated look with that hem detail. Did you notice it? That undone, raw, step hem gives it that currently cool look we all love. And let’s not forget – this dress is a complete bargain!

I love that this dress creates a classic, blank outfit base. And then you can take it in any direction you want with your styling. Indeed, accessories can really set the tone with this one. Here, I took this one direction with the cognac suede boots, a rustic looking statement necklace, and a floral embellished purse in the same tones.

Last week, though, I took this dress in a totally different direction. If you follow along with my Instagram stories, you might have noticed that I donned this dress when I visited the rewardStyle offices in Dallas. But note how the colorful fun boots and necklace give the dress a totally different look!

In Closing

So, are you convince yet of what a good deal this is? Trust me – it’s one of those pieces you’ll be reaching for over and over.

Finally, check back this afternoon… We have a major Houston Mural Guide update coming your way!

Until then, have a great hump day!
