This is a trend that I continue to see more of, and I love it. It’s classy, sophisticated, but still a little sexy. It’s a trend that some people look at and are turned away by because they don’t think that they can pull it off, but that’s not the case at all. It’s all about styling it to fit your body, just like any other outfit. The midi can definitely swallow you if you aren’t careful. You’re going to want to make sure that you’re buying your true size; not too small, and not too big. For me, I’m on the shorter side, so while I have paired my midi dress here with platforms, I would have looked taller and more slender should I have paired it with some heels. It’s hard to see here, but this particular dress from Target has a small cut out right under the boobs. You can take it one of the following ways: it’s great ventilation, it’s meant to showcase underboss, or my boobs are too big so it’s hidden instead of laying flat on my sternum (that’s where that is, right??). Any way that you take it, it’s a great way to amp up the dress. If you choose to go with a midi skirt or pant, then you’ll want to pair them with a form fitting top or bodysuit to not only showcase the bottoms, but to emphasize a more flattering fit. You can most definitely pair the two with an over sized sweater or tee, and possibly pull it slightly off the shoulder with a front tuck as well if you’re going for a more relaxed vibe! To me, midi dresses are classic and timeless, and the perfect piece to be transitioned into the cooler seasons. Other options when it comes to styling a midi dress – layering. Add a patterned or colored tee underneath for an extra pop, or layer it over top and tie it up to give it the look of a two-piece set. For when it gets colder, throw on a loose knit oversized sweater, a cardigan or a denim jacket. I’m loving the midi trend, and you should too! Don’t be scared to step out of your comfort zone and take some risks when it comes to your wardrobe, and life too!
