How to style a midi dress

Midi dresses are one of those marmite pieces you either love or hate. They make for perfect transitional pieces, but like this one I’ve styled below, tend to be quite figure hugging. With a rainbow of patterns available on the high street, you can choose to make a statement, or pick a simple style for every day wear. I choose a patterned one to style in three different ways.

This first look is for those evenings you spend in with your girlfriends, keeping it stylish but comfortable at the same time. Pull on a slouchy knit or loose cardigan to dress it down, and add some tights if your pins (legs) aren’t quite ready to be on show yet!

Want an every day stylish look? If it’s time for your summer shopping spree then team your midi dress with some tights and plain flats so as not to draw attention away from your dress, but still rocking the trend. Slip on a leather or bomber jacket for those chillier days, and your ready to burn a hole in your pocket!


Midi dresses are also great for drinks out and parties, so pair yours with your favourite chunky heels and a statement lipstick to be the fashionista on the dance floor! If your dress is quite plain, then dress it up with jewellery like a statement necklace and bangles.
