How to: Wear a midi dress

Author Editor - 4 minute read

What is a midi dress?

If you’ve not yet delved into the world of midi dresses, let us introduce you. Consider the midi dress the Goldilocks of your wardrobe, falling between the knee to mid-calf, the midi length sits perfectly between the mini and maxi.

Why to invest in a midi dress?

This length makes for a seasonless styling saviour, boasting a year-round longevity in your wardrobe simply by switching up how you style it. Not only is a midi dress an ideal base piece for versatile styling, but its inoffensive length allows for it to be worn come day or night, dressed up for date nights, casual for the work commute, and smart for the boardroom presentations.

Not sure how to style a midi dress? Fear not, we’re here to give you some tips for every occasion, every month of the year.

How to style a midi dress?

Well, where do we start?

    1. Midi dresses in Spring/Summer. Our summer days so far have been spent exploring the city wearing ours with trainers. Have a favourite pair that contrast against your midi dress? Worry not, the dress and trainers craze was kicked off back in 2006 by singer Lily Allen, and over a decade later it’s still going strong as a casually cool combination. For weekends at the beach and summer holiday suitcase packing, sandals will be your go-to partnering pair, with a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and straw bag.

  1. Midi dresses in Autumn/Winter. There’s no need to put your midi dress into hibernation when the heatwave subsides, as we love the layered look with cosy knitwear and oversized jumpers becoming your midi dress’ best friend come cooler days. Beanies, Chelsea boots and a midi-to-maxi length coat are the best entourage for your midi dress when there’s a chill in the air.
    1. Midi dresses as workwear. Wondering how to wear a midi dress to work? We’ve got you. A smart blazer and court heels will put you top of the promotion list, and a shirt dress will fill your lunch hour with co-worker compliments. A pair of pumps and light pair of tights will keep the work commute feasible whilst still flattering your new favourite length dress.

  1. Midi dresses for night’s out. Now, let’s talk about dressing up. Whether you’re planning a girl’s night out or date night, a midi dress grants you the glammed-up canvas. Grab a statement pair of boots, earrings, and clutch bag for a look to attract admiration till sunrise.
  1. Midi dresses for special occasions. And finally, your special-occasionwear style troubles are easily solved with a chic midi dress. Weddings, christenings, award ceremonies – you name it, a midi dress will suit it. A light cardigan, heels and handbag will have you looking your best when it matters most.

Midi dress recommendations?

Every midi dress has endless styling potential, so we’d recommend them all. However, let us give you a quick introduction to some of our new SS24 favourites.


 t-shirt dress is our staple everyday dress, and the monochrome stripes of our Rassia Stripe Midi Dress ticks all the boxes. A black dress is also a fail-safe at all hours, and we’ll be wearing our Rassia Jersey Slash Neck Midaxi Dress with a denim jacket by day, accompanied by layered jewellery by night.


If you’re anything like us when it comes to packing your summer holiday suitcase, it takes willpower not to travel with your whole wardrobe in tow. Our Nellis Cotton Crochet Dress takes up no room at all, in soft crochet with a sweet scoop neckline and scallop edges. You can never go wrong with a floaty floral dress either, which makes our Anathia Blaire Frill Midi Dress and its playful frills a summer dress favourite.


Oh we do love a wedding, and if you’re seeking a wedding guest dress this season then one of our midi dresses has you covered. The old-school glamour of our Echo Crepe Midi Dress earns this blue dress a front row spot in photographs, whilst we’d also raise a glass to the glitz embellishment of our Chandler Embellished Midi Dress as a summer wedding guest outfit, layering with a chic blazer for the ceremony.


Looking to dress up your workwear? Nobody ever said your shift couldn’t be stylish, and a white dress will brighten any day of the week, which is why we’re giving our Alora Midi Dress a promotion. This dress features an optional buttoned-up neckline, making it versatile for the 9-5 and any social plans that follow. You can never have too many shirt dresses, the versatile style from weekdays to weekend, and our Seine Eco Delphine Midi Dress adds a wild side to the traditional work outfit, as an animal print dress that meets the dress code.


No matter whether you’ve already found Mr/Mrs Right or are still on the look-out, we’ve got the right dress for any date nights lined up. Let’s set the scene: a candlelit dinner in a satin dress. Our Ennis Eco Satin Slip Midi Dress is a strappy dress set to cue compliments from any (potential) suitor, no matter the colourway. However, a red dress such as our Echo Crepe Keyhole Midi Dress will have their hearts racing.


Nothing quite says ‘girls night out’ like a pink dress. Our Rassia Rib Square Neck Midi Dress adds a flirty finish to its flattering midi length with a single leg split and square neckline primed to be paired with a glitz necklace. Fancy an entrance-making black dress? Look no further than our Echo Organza Mix Frill Strapless Midi Dress, with an opulent organza neckline granting this strapless dress a starring role at upcoming soirees.
