MIDI DRESS VERSATILITY
Neither as short as a mini dress nor as long as a maxi, the midi dress nails that just-right length. These dresses offer an easygoing casual style when paired with slides or sandals and can effortlessly transition to smart casual or semi-formal when styled with heels or boots or layered with jackets and cosy knits.
WHAT IS A MIDI DRESS?
The midi dress length sits comfortably between your knees and ankles—striking the perfect balance of not too short and not too long. Choose from a variety of sleeve options, including sleeveless, short sleeve and long sleeve, all designed for effortless wear and easy layering.
Embrace casual simplicity on weekends with a midi shirt dress, or spice it up in the evenings with strappy and strapless styles. High neck and halter neck midi dresses bring elegance to fancy formal occasions, while a classic v neck midi dress can take you from Sunday brunch with friends to Monday morning at the office.
BEST MATERIALS AND COLOURS FOR A MIDI DRESS
Our midi dresses offer year-round comfort and style. For summer, put natural fabrics like 100% EcoVero™ Viscose and Australian Cotton to stay cool and breezy.
A midi dress made of 100% linen is a timeless staple that you can effortlessly twirl in, season after season, year after year. Endlessly wearable, linen is naturally breathable and can keep you cool in the summer or warm in the winter when layered with knitwear and cardigans.
Reach for cosy knit dresses with a hint of elastane for a curve-accentuating stretch in the cooler months. This evening essential features 3/4 sleeves and a crew neckline for added style.
When it comes to colour, muted tones like teal, brown and navy are perfect for colder months and formal events, while pretty lilac and hot pink midi dresses are spring and summer favourites, especially with floral prints and puff sleeves.
ARE MIDI DRESSES FORMAL?
When styled with the right accessories, heels, blazers and cropped jackets, a slim fit or belted midi dress easily delivers the sophistication needed for formal events. These dresses can also turn into the perfect bridesmaid dress, chic wedding guest dress or even a cocktail dress for those special evenings.
For smart casual and formal occasions, your options are endless. Choose a classic black midi dress, a minimalist plain dress or a vibrant print dress. If you're looking for something different, a long sleeve midi dress offers elegance, while a white midi dress or a pleated midi dress could be your next go-to party dress.
HOW DO YOU STYLE A MIDI DRESS?
You'll have plain and print midi dresses on high rotation, as their versatile style easily adapts to suit any occasion. Whether it's casual weekend comfort, elegant formal style or chic work outfits, the midi dress is a year-round staple for every woman.
- For Work: A midi dress is a smart choice for your workwear wardrobe. Pair a sleeveless or short sleeve midi dress with heels, cropped jackets or blazers for a polished look. Opt for linen and Australian Cotton fabrics to keep you cool during those busy workdays. To add a touch of style, go for v-neck, frill neck or notch necklines.
- Casual Outings: A midi dress with a relaxed silhouette is perfect for shopping, coffee dates and informal daytime events. Just add flat sandals or slides and a crossbody bag for a laidback look.
- Smart Casual and Date Night: Opt for a midi dress with sleeves and style it with cosy coats and jewellery. You can even layer a knit jumper over a slim fit long sleeve maxi dress and pair it with knee-high boots for added warmth and style.
