It’s probably not news to you that we love the midi dress.
The proportions of a midi dress are extremely flattering and a midi dress is a great length for women over 50, especially for party and occasion dressing.
The arrival of the midi dress has made us fall in love with dresses all over again.
And if you are looking for that special midi dress for a special occasion or just because you deserve a special dress, look no further than the Amanda Wakeley A/W16 collection, where the dresses, and especially the midi dresses have sent all of us at SoSensational into a state of deep lust.
Of course, the length of midi dresses vary from just below the knee to low mid-calf. It’s worth keeping in mind that the models these dresses are photographed on are generally tall, so if you are of more average/medium height, the dress may be a bit more midi. But you will definitely know these from Amanda Wakeley will well cover your knees – one of the reasons our current PM, Theresa May, is a fan of this clever British designer, having worn that beautiful and very elegant Amanda Wakeley coat in navy and acid-yellow for her Palace visit when the Queen invited her to form a new government.
Not only does Amanda Wakeley.com offer free worldwide delivery, but they also offer free UK returns, so if you buy a dress in more than one size to ensure the perfect fit, you can return the wrong size at no cost.
Here are our Midi Dress perfect picks from Amanda Wakeley…
The Luna dress in dark navy epitomises contemporary femininity. Tailored detail gives this midi-dress a sharply defined silhouette while the fit-and-flare cut, the belt and the pleated skirt flatters your figure. Wear with low wedges or flats to balance the midi-length. Pair it with a blazer to make it the definitive desk-to-dark dress. All mature brides should be aware that this dress is also available in silvery grey.
For those of you who love colour, you will be happy to learn that the Amanda Wakeley A/W16 collection features gorgeous dresses in “fluoro” as well as in shades like midnight and double-cream. One of the stand-out dresses in fluoro, and, indeed, in the collection, is the stunning “Eclipse” dress. Cut from an innovative bias-weave fabric, the short-sleeved ‘Eclipse’ dress elegantly skims your silhouette while the asymmetric, fluid cut flows as you move. Wear this dress with strappy shoes for a pared-back evening look. And if fluoro is not “your” colour, it is also available in navy.
The beautifully tailored fit of the ‘Horizon’ shift dress is perfectly designed to sculpt your silhouette. Expertly cut from stretch “cady”, the elegant dress features a deep V-neck and a bold zip at that back. Transform this piece from day to night by swapping your flats for heels and adding statement accessories.
Epitomising understated opulence, the ‘Bedawi’ embellished dress is the true embodiment of after-dark elegance. Crafted in luxe, heavyweight crepe-type fabric (technically a techno-cady), this long-sleeve dress lifts and sculpts your figure creating an effortlessly sleek silhouette. With its sheer panels of metallic lace across the back and sleeves, this dress is the definitive LND (Little Navy Dress) for the party season. Partner this chic cocktail dress with patent pumps and a matching clutch. And do keep in mind there is a version in white with nude lace which could be the perfect dress for an older bride.
And talking of older brides, the Amanda Wakeley signature “Fitted” dress is re-imagined for this season in a metallic jacquard weave. We think the pale version in white/grey colourway would be perfect for an older bride, especially as it has a matching jacket As always, the cut of the dress elegantly sculpts the silhouette while contrast panels slim you, and a two-way zip through the back ensures a figure-flattering fit. Add some sparkling accessories for evenings or special occasions.
This “Valley” dress is an easy piece in silk for injecting a dash of feminine elegance into your party wardrobe. Cut from 100% silk; this chic, sleeved shift dress features an elegant asymmetric ruffle that gives a glimpse of the arm making this piece perfect for pairing with a statement cuff.
