There’s no getting away from the fact that when it comes to effortless spring dressing, a midi dress is the answer. Simple silhouettes, longer sleeves and a versatile hem-length make for a piece that can be thrown on in the morning and will see you comfortably through the day. Dress them up, dress them down, the styling possibilities are endless. So while the catwalks might be preoccupied with all things mini, an easy, breezy midi holds a very special place in our hearts and wardrobes. The trick to making them feel modern lies in the styling.
Sharpen up your midi for smart occasions by layering a blazer over the top. Add a summery heeled sandal and roomy suede hobo bag in complementing tones.
Master warm weekend dressing with a midi and cardigan combination. Choose a waist-length cardigan to maintain the silhouette, then just add flats.
Respin your knitted vest for spring and layer it over a printed midi. This masculine/feminine mix works best with sleek accessories.
For days on the go, a midi dress and trench coat is a fail-safe formula. Give the look a ’70s feel with clogs and a raffia tote.
