Fashion is cyclical, which is wonderful because it means that classic silhouettes like the midi dress come back in style every few years! The midi dress is a powerful staple that every woman should embrace and have in her closet. The shape in undeniably flattering: a cinched waist emphasizes feminine curves, while the skirt hits mid-calf, thereby assuming the name “midi”.
While some people have historically argued that midi dresses should be avoided by both short and tall women alike, we are here to tell you that anyone can pull off a midi dress–and look fabulous doing so! The key is finding a midi dress that hits slightly above mid-calf, like the one in the pictures. That way, you’re showing off the slimmest part of your calf (right below the knee), as well as the rest of it. A classic midi will cut you off at the thicker part of your calf. There’s a lesson to be learned from this: fashion and style is all about finding which shapes suit your body the best, not which styles are trendiest at the moment.
Another midi dress tip is to pair it with a cropped jacket, which will again highlight your waist. The secret to pulling off a midi dress is finding the right proportions for yourself. Once you do, you’ll be able to effortlessly incorporate the midi dress into your wardrobe. Take this look from the office with a cropped blazer or short cardigan to a night out on the town by switching to a cropped leather jacket!
