Not one for trousers no matter the weather? The midi dress is probably your go-to favourite. Undoubtedly a hipster’s uniform, the dress is having a true fashion moment beyond its label as the ‘alternative choice’, with everyone from Altuzarra to Isabel Marant showcasing their versions at recent shows.
While we love the prairie dress trend (read about our obsession here), the midi seems to have inspired many other revolutions like casual shirt dresses, summery ensembles and glamorous evening wear. Here’s what made our cut for your wardrobe:
Rejina Pyo showed effortlessly flowing shirt dresses. Choose among cotton or silk to get you ready for an afternoon of shopping or an evening sipping cocktails. We love the styling as well with its capacious bags that you know holds all!
Simon Miller upgrades beach couture with classic blue and white stripes and a trendy, bright solid. Take to the promenade in style with these options built for long walks by the beach.
Altuzarra gives us a taste of one of the biggest trends of SS19 with their ode to surf culture, while also providing elegant relief with a glamorously understated ivory dress.
Who said that midi dresses were solely for lovers of 50s nostalgia? Helmut Lang has transformed the number for the 21st century or perhaps the future with edgy cuts and sleek styling. Whether you opt for the black cut-out or gauzy white, Lang ensures you are no fading wallflower with these constructions.
Theory brings the list to a close with these fairy, dream-like classics in olive green and mustard. Ultra-feminine with a bold structure, the solid colours draw in your eye - perfect for an elegant lawn party or a special evening about town.
