Don't have the confidence to dare to bare all in a mini? Then the midi dress is your new BFF. It's short enough to make a great addition to your spring-summer wardrobe, but also not too revealing for those of us who don't feel comfortable exposing the knee. This calf-skimming style is the hem line of the SS season, and the good news is that this trend couldn't be more wearable or versatile.
Pair your new knee-length dress with a glam pair of wedges for a sophisticated look that will serve you well on an epic night out on the town or combine it with some slick trainers for a laid back (but not over-casual!) brand of day-time chic. Midi dresses will take you from day to night, office to the dance floor, whatever the season, no matter the reason!
How to Wear a Midi Dress
You can go as tight as you like on the fit. One option is the classic figure-hugging bodycon for those of you who have perfect curves and aren't afraid to show them off. For the more laid back girl with a passion for all things vintage, there's no beating a full-skirted skater dress for a dash of 50s-style glamour.
Pencil skirts tend to look amazing at midi length – just add stiletto heels and you'll be looking like a boss in no time! Be daring when it comes to your choice of colour and texture. If you're feeling adventurous, feel free to go for exciting patterns like fun polka dots, wild leopard prints or intricate paisley patterns. Adding a touch of leather will give your new midi dress outfit a sense of sophistication with just a touch of edginess for the perfect all-rounder look.
