An Instant Figure Fixer? Make It A Midi Dress!

Midi dresses have been gracing the catwalks for a few seasons now, thanks to their wearability and instant slimming magic. Shop our pick of the best now...

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 fabulous!

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 as 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.

Midi 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. Worried that a midi dress will make your hips looking too big? Steer away from tulle or clinging fabrics. Instead opt for pleats and delicate farbics that will skim your sides and leave you looking slim and streamlined. If you’re concerned that midi dresses are still seen as ‘dowdy’ – don’t be. There’s nothing frumpy about our pick of gorgeous dresses. The high street is awash with on-trend styles in modern, flattering cuts and colours just like this one from Boden for £110, with a flattering full skirt and a bust enhancing v-neck, it’s a great party got to. Simply ensure that you find a midi dress that fully flatters your silhouette and in a bold print or colour.
