The Midi Dress is not so much “having a moment” as crashing through the season, devouring everything in its path.
The Midi Dress is definitively the dress of the season. The excellent news is that the Midi Dress is available at all different price points, in different fabrics and colours and in many different cuts and shapes to flatter lots of body types.
More good news about the Midi Dress: The proportions of a Midi Dress are extremely flattering; the Midi Dress looks good with flat (or almost flat) shoes and, Midi Dress is a great length for grown-up women when it comes to dressing for parties and occasions.
And this new length (well, new for 2016) is a fresh take on a dress, which makes us fall in love with dresses all over again. Midi Dress lengths vary from a couple of inches below the knee to low mid-calf.
At SoSensational we love the Midi Dress for all the above reasons, but also because it is not only perfectly on trend, but it looks great on women over 50 because it is a longer length. And because it is intended to be longer, it doesn’t look frumpy… And the proportions make it easy to style with a jacket or blazer.
Like the Midi Skirt the midi dress is not so much “new” as making a comeback. It had its big moment in the late 1960s and early 1970s – indeed, Jan and Cyndy have clear memories of wearing midis then. Perhaps you do, too. If so, do let us know by sharing your memories of midis in the comment box, below.
The Midi Dress is easy to style too. You can pair a midi dress with flats or heels, depending on the occasion.
For workwear and daytimes style with opaques or thick/ribbed tights and brogues or boots (the midi works with ankle boots, high boots and the new “midi” boot as long as you can be sure you won’t be left with an unsightly gap between top-of-boot and dress hem).
For dressier occasions, pair your midi dress with pointed-toe flats or a ghillie, or a ballerina. Or if you prefer a heel, pair your midi with either a mid-height block heel or an ankle-strap stiletto.
For a polished party look, style with a cross-body bag, or a mini-tote or a big clutch (if you have a fuller bust carry your clutch in your hand, rather than under your arm, as holding it under your arm makes you look wider. See more tips for fuller bust here). Then just add and statement jewellery.
