The Ultimate Midi Dress Length Guide: Getting It Right Every Time

Oh, how we all love a good midi dress! They’ve been around for ages and look amazing on our curves, so it’s no wonder a midi dress can be your best friend when you’re stepping out. If you haven’t looked into just how much a midi dress can spice up your wardrobe, don’t worry, we’ve got you. It can be as casual or as dressed up as you need, and ladies, we’re here to show you how to style a midi dress to make you feel oh so fab! 
You’ll be saying ‘yes’ to the midi dress in no time!

What is a Midi Dress?

A midi dress falls halfway between the knee and ankle. Longer than a mini and shorter than a maxi, it’s free-flowing and is the perfect length that can say ‘fun’ or ‘sophistication’ depending on how you end up wearing it.  
When considering your outfit choices, understanding the length of midi dress is crucial. The best thing about the midi dress is it can be dressed up with accessories like jewellery and heels, or dressed down with a sun hat and sneakers. You get maximum versatility by having the midi as a staple piece in your wardrobe. 

How Long Should a Midi Dress Be? 

Friends often ask me how long should a midi dress be and where should a midi dress fall?  Shorter ladies like me will definitely pull off a stunning look and rock a midi dress with ease. A go-to like our gorgeous Adrift signature Georgie Pintuck Dress in Emerald will look incredible for any occasion, giving you the feeling of confidence that matches your personality.

Styling Your Midi Dress

I remember having a chat with a girlfriend who wasn’t sure if she could pull off the midi dress look. She thought her thighs were too big for her body, and for some reason thought midi dresses were a no-no for her. Let me tell you how wrong she was. Her wardrobe went into overdrive when she took the plunge and bought herself a few midi’s she could wear for different occasions. She went from drab to fab when she learnt how to style a midi dress! 
The beauty of the midi dress length is that the way you style a midi dress gives you maximum versatility. 
If the look you’re going for is casual, easy-going chic, pair it with a denim jacket with sandals or sneakers. This works for a lunch catch up with the girls, or even at work. I know a few teachers who pair a midi with a jacket or cardigan, who say it gives them the comfort and confidence to get through their busy days with ease.

If your workplace is on the corporate side, you can match your midi dress with a cool blazer and heels that tell your workplace you mean business.  I’m not saying you’ll necessarily get a promotion for looking this great (wink wink), but it doesn’t hurt to look and feel your best in a beautiful midi dress at work! 
You can add some razzle-dazzle with your midi dress if you’re stepping out for those party cocktail vibes. I often suggest incorporating a belt to cinch in your waist will accent your body shape and give your midi the perfect accessory for evening fun. Add some sparkly jewellery to go with your glass of bubbles and you’ll be ready for whatever the night brings. 
Ladies, we really are spoiled for choice this summer season. In the summer months, florals will continue to be on-trend this season.

To make the switch from daywear to evening wear, try styling your midi dress with accessories such as jewellery or hats to add a little va-va-voom when you need to style your midi dress with a touch of class.
