Spotlight On: Midi Dresses

Wear your midi dress with style


Put away your minis and maxis ladies, this season it’s all about adding a modern midi dress to your summer wardrobe. Whether it’s for a wedding, work or the weekend, we think midis are perfect for all types of occasion over the sunny season.

After making a cool come back, midi dresses have continued to dominate both the catwalk and high street year after year and, with so many shapes, prints and lengths now available, there really is a style to suit everyone. So easy to dress up or down, we think they should be at the top of your wishlist this summer.

From bold prints to simple sleeveless styles, we have some gorgeous options available in our summer dress collection.

How to wear a midi dress

Now don’t get us wrong, as much as we love our midis, we completely agree that they can often prove a little difficult to wear. However, fear not ladies – midis are much more wearable than you think and we’re here to show you how.

Worn in the right way, a midi dress can add a whole lot of wow to any outfit, so we’ve provided a few tips on how to make a midi your wardrobe staple this summer.

The shoes

We’re ditching all fashion rules when it comes to selecting shoes to match your midi dress. Forget “lower the hem, higher the heel”, we think midis look just as fabulous with flats and sandals as they do heels.

Pair with pretty pumps or slip-on sandals by day and a pair of on-trend wedges or courts by night.

The jacket

Whether you’re looking to achieve occasionwear glam or keep it casual in the sun, how you choose to layer your midi is essential to your overall look. We suggest keeping it short when selecting outwear, ensuring whatever style you choose ends at the hips or waist.

We love our summer-staple denim jacket and think it’s perfect for dressing down any midi dress for a day of shopping and lunch.

The accessories

Save the accessories for another outfit as, when it comes to midi dresses, we say keep it simple. Avoid wearing too much jewellery and try to keep all other accessories low key, letting the dress speak for itself. Add a floppy hat and sunglasses for a cool, casual look and a minimal clutch when you’re dressing for the occasion.

Whether it’s for the beach or the bar, work or the weekend, we’re pretty certain there’s a midi dress with your name on it in our fabulous dress collection. Shop now and see for yourself.
