Midi dresses: trends
For some, the mini dress shows too much leg and the maxi dress too little – in which case the middle might be just right. Calf-length dresses are the rediscovery of the year and have shaken off their dusty, outdated image. Be it in a pencil cut or in an A-line, bell shaped or with plissé pleats – calf-length dresses are back.
What to wear with midi dresses
A figure-hugging knitted dress in this trendy length is perfect for a cosy winter look. In summer, many dresses boast swirling, flared cuts, floral patterns and colourful prints, in which case they would look great with ballerinas and sandals. Chic and wonderfully comfortable for the office: calf-length dress in a wrap-over look.
Exclusive fashion tip
Designers themselves have rediscovered this gem in a big way, meaning you have lots to choose from in terms of fabrics, cuts, colours and patterns. The most important criterion for a midi dress is of course its length. The lower hem should at least cover the knee. Anything that ends above the knee is mini, everything below is either midi or maxi.
