Five Ways to Wear a Midi Dress
Dresses are one of the most versatile fashion items around, and none more so than the midi dress. This calf-length style can cover a multitude of sins and can make you feel great, whether you choose to dress it up or down.
Like maxi dresses, midi dresses can be worn in countless different ways to suit any occasion. Let’s look at five of the best ways to style a midi dress.
Casual with trainers
Even a smart midi dress can look great for a casual occasion when teamed with a pair of great trainers or pumps. You could go for crisp white Converse or Adidas canvas pumps; alternatively, steer towards the higher echelons of fashion with a sparkly pair of leathers from your favourite designer.
If you only want to buy one pair of trainers, white or black will give you the most opportunities to team them with a variety of midi and maxi dresses. If money or space are not issues, don’t be afraid to experiment with colours and textures to really liven up a look.
Girly with mules
Team your favourite midi dresses with a pair of girly mules for a lunch date or drinks with friends on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Opt for nude mules that will go with a multitude of different dresses or find a pattern that will liven up a plain dress. Alternatively, try your hand at pattern matching, although this is only a good idea if you have a flair for style or the confidence to pull off a less-conventional look.
Daywear with sandals
Flat sandals are a must-have during the summer months and work perfectly with a midi dress. Fling on a pair of sparkly sandals for a summer brunch or your favourite ‘comfies’ for wandering around the shops. Flat shoes are playing an increasing role in our everyday lives.
Night out with fun shoes
Whether you are heading out on a date or to paint the town red, a plain midi dress with a pair of fun or funky shoes will always be a great style choice.
In different styles
Midi dresses come in all shapes and styles, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Try a simple version for afternoon tea with the in-laws or a backless, strappy number for a night on the town.
