Spring is on its way, and while admittedly I wear midi dresses all year round, I can never resist updating my collection at this time of year with the new pieces dropping online (and selling those dresses that have stayed firmly at the back of my wardrobe).
The new season calls for lighter, brighter colours, breezy fabrics and fun prints. From my high street go-to & Other Stories to celebrity-favourite Reformation, I've found all of the best options to wear with boots now and sandals or trainers when the weather finally warms up. Expect black, white, pink, green, and floral printed options, as well as long sleeve and satin styles.
Royals and celebrities wearing midi dresses
It's arguably a wardrobe staple, but you'll see some royals wearing midi dresses more than others, and none more so than the Princess of Wales. She's synonymous with a printed midi, pictured here in Rixo's Izzy Dress. The 42-year-old royal looked effortlessly elegant, wearing the look with fresh-faced makeup and a pair of Castaner wedge espadrilles. Kate also likes to pair a floral midi dress with her Superga Cotu classic trainers.
Jennifer Lopez is another celeb who loves a midi, and was spotted wearing Reformation's Tagliatelle dress on her honeymoon in Paris. The Hollywood star looked beautiful in the breezy floral linen dress, which she styled with heeled sandals and oversized sunnies.
You can't go wrong with a white midi dress in the spring/summer season, as proven by Victoria Beckham. Featuring subtle stripes in a floaty cut, I love how she's styled it with colour pop shoes.
How I chose the best midi dresses
- New-in: Your wardrobe deserves a new season refresh, so everything in this edit is from the just-dropped spring collections.
- Style: Spring is synonymous with floral prints so I've made sure to include the prettiest ones available to shop. For colours, I've mostly gone for neutrals, pastels and brighter hues.
- Cut: In the warmer weather most of us tend to lean towards floatier, breezy cuts and dresses with shorter sleeves or spaghetti straps, so I've considered this while curating my edit.
- Fabrics: Our wool-blend midi dresses are now firmly in our winter wardrobes, making way for more lightweight fabrics like linen and pure cotton.
