Meet Me Halfway: the Midi Dress and Skirt
Just like Goldilocks, some days we just want to meet somewhere in the middle. This season’s new hit trend just made that a whole lot easier for us. Inject ladylike flair easily into your everyday aesthetic by welcoming to your closet, the midi-length trend! As seen on many runways in skirts, dresses, jumpsuits, and even with cardigans and vests, the midi-length trend is super functional and has been donned by fashion aficionados across the world. With a nipped-in waist and body-accentuating shape, the midi dress and midi skirt are flattering options on everyone, but styling details often get in the way of nailing the trend. Here are a few quick styling tips to help you look the part in midi skirts and dresses at all times…
BUTTON IT UP
We love the on-trend midi-length and diminutive buttons, especially with a style that is notoriously tricky to pull off without feeling conservative or overly covered up. A slip dress is an easy style to pull-off on more casual occasions like Festival weekends or brunch with your girlfriends. It’s the perfect combination of feminine and laid-back.
ROCK A SIDE SLIT
The slight over-the-knee slit takes this charcoal midi skirt up a notch, don’t you think? Legs are set to dominate this season, and if you took one look at the leg-flaunting slits that came parading down this year’s runways and said, “Yes please!” we understand. By no means does the longer length necessitate a stuffy, conventional look; instead, it’s a great platform for an added touch of sexiness.
WEAR IT SKIN TIGHT
While dresses typically tend to go the route of either mini or maxi, a length that meets right in the middle feels novel for summer. The ideal midi dress is one that’s fitted from the waist down, and hits just above or right below the knee. Paired with a necklace and heeled sandal, you’ve reached bodycon perfection.
Looking for a garment that makes a statement? You will fall in love with the clean lines, perfect fit and jetset flair of the culotte jumpsuit. They’re both a chic and uber-comfy alternative to midi skirts and dresses without having to compromise on the mid-length vibes you’ve got going on.
Style tip: style it with a jean jacket and pendant necklace in the day and platform heels and bold lipstick come Saturday night.
