Lessons From Last Night: Midi Dresses Are In

When three impeccably dressed women attend a buzzing London party in the same style of dress, without prior arrangement, something is in the fashion atmosphere. Kate Bosworth (in Simone Rocha), Laura Bailey (in Delopozo) and Millie Mackintosh (in Shiatzy Chen) all chose to wear a striking, ladylike mid-calf-length dress for the exclusive opening of Charlotte Tilbury’s London boutique. While the dress shape is evocative of '50s glamour, complete with a playful full skirt, the like-minded trio added a 2015 spin to their respective dresses with sky-high heels and chichi updos. Add these outfit formulas to your seasonal repertoire to earn instant kudos on the party circuit.
