The Universally Flattering Denim Wash For Summer Dresses

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked National's associate editor Kenzie Bryant

Gillian Dress by Cheap Monday at Shopbop, $80 (was $100)

This denim dress was an impulse buy for me (defined as: I hadn't been shopping around for the "The Perfect ___" for three months before finally, excruciatingly making a commitment). It was one of those items I knew would fit in my weekend wardrobe and the price was right, but the clincher was that both a friend and I tried it on. Although she has a completely different skin tone, hair color, and eye color combination as me, the light wash flattered us both (and the very fair Shopbop model above for that matter). She ended up buying a different Cheap Monday dress in the same wash, so consider this tone tested and approved for your non-jeans denim look this summer.
