How to Wear a Midi Dress | The Best Summer Trend of 2019

Today we are going to be talking about my favorite summer trend - the midi dress!

A year ago, if you asked me, I would have fallen solidly in either the mini dress or maxi dress camp. I never even considered anything in between!

Now, this midi dress category is my favorite place to be - and I think more people need to be trying this trend.

The silhouette is feminine and classic, not to mention SO flattering. I've been wearing this style anywhere and everywhere this summer - bridal showers, weddings, date nights, parties, you name it!

Wear Tips:
  • Make this classic look more modern: Go for bold colors and fun prints!
  • If you're a shorter girl like me and are intimidated by this trend, try pairing your midi with simple nude heels. This streamlines your legs and makes you look taller!
  • Look for a length that hits either right under your knee or just above the ankle -  and AVOID anything that hits at the widest part of your calf! (Avoid it like the plage!!!)
  • For a polished look, opt for dresses with minimal volume up top. I look for a fitted bodice or cinched waste, to create a nice A-line effect.
  • For a more laid back look, go for a loose, flowy fit in breezy fabrics like cotton or linen.

For a more formal event, style these dresses with strappy sandals or pointed toe pumps.

If your going causal, opt for wedges, espadrilles, or sneakers for a dressed down vibe.
