How To Style A Midi Dress For Different Occasions

Step aside Little Black Dresses of the world, because the Midi Dress is here to stay. Besides being effortlessly elegant, the popular trend is also comfortable, versatile and easy to wear. What more can a girl ask for right? We get Jessica Tham (@tippytapp) to show us how to style a Midi Dress for different occasions.


1. Weekend Warrior

Say hello to your new weekend uniform, because the Midi Dress will make your usual shorts-and-tee combo a thing of the past. Need to run some errands around town? Slip on a Midi Shirt Dress and cinch the waist with a belt to create a more defined silhouette. Now, can anyone say cute and comfy?



To keep the look polished, accessorise with a structured statement bag to complement the looseness of the dress. Complete your ensemble with a pair of comfy flats or sandals.



2. Brunch Bunch

Meeting your #squad for the weekend? A Midi Dress in a neutral colour will take you from brunch to shopping, without compromising on style or comfort. Opt for one in a classic straight cut to keep the look casual but smart.



To keep the outfit from looking too basic, go for one with interesting details like a pleated skirt or asymmetrical hemline. Pull the look together with your favourite statement bag and a pair of classic ballet flats.



3. Formal Fun

For dressier occasions like wedding dinners or anniversaries, opt for a Midi Dress in a sturdier fabric and darker shade. An A-Line cut is a classy and flattering option for most body types…and as an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about that potential food baby showing under your dress.


Too lazy to accessorise your outfit? Go for a Midi Dress with interesting back details instead. Complete the look with a pair of evening pumps and you’re all set for a fabulous night out.
