We Only Want to Wear This Dress Style Right Now—and So Do You, Right?

When it comes to the building blocks of an incredible wardrobe, the midi dress is one piece no fashion girl should be without. Whether it’s a wrap dress, a shirtdress or a cami-style slip that’s ripe for layering, the best midi-length dresses have the power to carry your style through the transitional weather of spring straight into the balmy depths of summer and beyond. 

Why do we love these so much? It’s simple— you can pair them with sneakers on the weekend, loafers, mules or ankle boots for the office; swap your tights for jeans or leggings; slip a short-sleeved tee, blouse or a roll-neck underneath; pull over a slouchy sweater or belt-up a classic trench. Basically, the midi dress is the most versatile item in any wardrobe. There’s also a style and shape to suit everyone, so whether you’re a floral wrap dress kind of girl or a dedicated follower of the all-black fashion uniform, this is the staple that always works.
