Midi dresses have been making waves in the fashion world for a while
now, but how do you wear one yourself? There seems to be a common
misconception that the trend only looks great on tall, slim women – but
we’re here to show you how you can wear the trend and look truly
Choosing the perfect length is important. A midi dress
is defined as a dress with a hem that stops mid-calf, but not everyone
wants to draw attention to that particular area. Instead, opt for a
dress that ends just below the knee. This looks great on all sizes, and
will actually lengthen legs – especially if the waist sits high up.
dresses are a great choice for practically any occasion, wear with a
blazer and some ballet flats and it’s the perfect workwear attire, or
opt for heels and some glittering accessories for an evening out.
that a midi dress will make your hips looking too big? Steer away from
tulle, and instead opt for pleats and delicate farbics that will skim
hips and tummies and leave you looking slim and streamlined.

colours just like this one from La Redoute, with a flattering ful skirt in vibrant summer red.
