When it comes to modest dresses, the midi dress is a popular option. If you’re not sure what a midi dress is, it’s a dress that isn’t as long as a maxi, which is usually floor length. Midis hit you somewhere between above your ankles to just below your knee. So, if it covers your knees, or covers all the way down to your calves, it’s considered a midi dress. This length is great for church, parties, and the office. How do you style a midi dress, though? Here are five ways.
1. Showcase your Shoes
One fun way to style a midi dress is by showcasing a cute pair of shoes. This works best for midi dresses that are closer to knee length so people can really admire your shoes. Pick a solid-colored midi dress and a more ornate or bright pair of shoes. The focal point will be your shoes, but it creates a fun look and allows you to show off a pair of shoes that you might not wear super often.
2. Layer it Up with Tights and a Cardigan
When it gets chillier outside, you still might want to wear your favorite midi dress. It might not seem like a comfortable option, though, if it’s cold, windy, or wet outside. However, you can wear your midi dress and be comfortable if you layer it a bit. Add a pair of tights, some cute shoes (flat with a grip if it’s icy or snowy), and layer a cardigan or coat over the top. You can remove your coat once you’re inside, but this will allow you to stay warm and comfy even in the colder months.
3. Hats and Boots
Another fun midi dress pairing includes your favorite wide-brimmed hat. This would look especially cute with a neutral-colored midi dress. You can complete the look with a pair of boots. This is a great styling for more casual outdoor occasions in the fall.
4. Jean Jackets and Sneakers
If you’re going out with friends, to the farmers’ market, or to brunch, you can keep your midi dress more casual. Try layering a jean jacket over the top of a patterned midi dress (we love florals and patterns for this look). You can also throw on a pair of sneakers to keep the look comfortable and casual.
5. Monochromatic and Simple
Some midi dresses simply don’t need much styling. For example, if you are wearing a midi dress in a solid color, such as black, and you’re going for a more formal look, you can pair it with accessories of the same color. So, in this example, a pair of black shoes and a black handbag would do nicely. Sometimes we focus too much on dressing up a dress when it looks good on its own. So, don’t forget that keeping it simple is a great option when it comes to styling your midi dresses too.
