If you’ve spent the past year in your stretchiest leggings and don’t know how you’ll ever put a cute outfit together again (were jeans always this uncomfortable?), we feel you. Thankfully, there’s a stylish and comfortable way to transition out of WFH athleisure and into a breezy summer wardrobe: the midi dress.
More versatile than mini or maxi dresses, calf-length dresses are a wardrobe staple that suit any dress code and require minimal styling—throw on a leather jacket and a pair of crisp white sneakers to dress down a floral frock, or opt for a belted style in a muted colour for a more polished vibe. This summer’s hottest styles are all about comfort (think: oversized silhouettes and lightweight fabrics), but details like ruffles, ties and asymmetrical cuts make them stand out.
From silky slips to casual smocks, we’ve rounded up the cutest midi dresses to add to your collection this summer.
