Her ode to the denim mini dress won me over.

Martha Stewart’s Instagram is my obsession; I read all of her captions like I’ve been asked to analyze them. Even when she’s just posting random, mundane snaps, she’ll get candid like she’s talking to a friend, or share an anecdote that changes how I view everything from pantry to beauty staples. And as I was scrolling through the app earlier this week, I was immediately drawn in when I saw her and a friend wearing matching mini denim dresses from Chloé, but it was after reading her caption that I was like, “Well, time to go find my own.”

In what I’m deeming an ode to the denim dress, Stewart wrote that despite the “raggedy” nature of the unfinished hems and visible seams, she found herself in love with the “chic” and “so comfortable” piece. And, honestly, same. Stewart proved that the denim mini was ageless, and I was inspired by how she and her friend both took their own approach to styling it — it looked just as good with casual sneakers as it did a more dressed-up wedge. And given that less-traditional denim pieces — think anything other than a basic pair of jeans — are set to be one of fall’s biggest trends, I started searching for lookalikes the moment I saw the pic. Below, I found seven similar styles with prices starting at $35.

At Amazon, Kdf’s denim dress — which cinches in at the waist, has pockets on both sides, and features a tiered design at the back — is available in a number of different denim washes. You could go classic with a light blue or indigo, or lean into fall’s darker hues with the brand’s moody black or faded gray wash. This pick is made from a cotton and polyester blend shoppers describe as “wonderfully soft” and “so comfortable.” As for the look, even a 67-year-old shopper found themselves obsessed with the ageless style, writing that the dress is “adorable” and flattering, with the “empire in the back” hitting the “smallest part of [their] waist.”




Gap’s denim dress offers a more romantic take on Stewart’s style, with smocked bodice, tiered skirt, and slightly puffed sleeves. Shoppers say it "fits nice and is flattering," and you can snag it on double discount right now for just $50 when you add it to your cart.





Though a bit of splurge, Rag & Bone’s Justine Featherweight shirtdress is nearly identical to Stewart’s, from the round neck down to the raw hems she lovingly called raggedy. And shoppers have deemed this style “fantastic.” The cotton and lyocell blend is “deliciously soft,” per one reviewer, while the relaxed silhouette “moves easily with you.” Like Stewart, shoppers love the “distressed details” that “add a lived-in look” to the classic style, adding that the pockets are “sturdy enough for quick-errand-or-dog-walking needs.”




Denim maxi skirts were vying to be fall’s ‘It’ piece, but Stewart has me convinced the versatile denim mini dress is going to be a close runner-up. Shop more dresses inspired by her look, below.
