The Fashion Chronicles: The Midi Dress.

Back to a Wardrobe Classic? The Midi Dress.

by Shop By Amy.


Months at home in our best and comfiest casual wear - whether that be leggings, sweats, comfy tees - might have us looking for some inspiration, itching to reach out for brighter colors and dress up as we step outside to busier social calendars and the sunny, warmer weather of summer. Whether you have an array of social catch-ups and events penciled into your calendar or are simply looking to add an extra touch of effortless style to your outfit, a midi dress could be a great option. Midi dresses with their between knee and calf hemlines can sometimes conjure up retro-chic and harken back to the 1920s. Still, the roaring 20s are back again, and our new takes on the classic hemline can be the perfect bit of summer chic to add to your wardrobe!

The midi dress will always be an easy outfit-in-one calling out for you to accessorize according to your personal style and the occasion. Midi dresses are versatile enough to work equally well as a put-together office look, a casual daytime look with sneakers, a fun party look, an effortless dinner alfresco look, or a snazzy date night look. They even work well to quickly transition from work-from-home loungewear chic and into an effortlessly put-together look for when you walk out the door. Not that a floaty slip-style white midi dress can’t sometimes be the perfect outfit for a more chic yet still casual house dress.

Many of the midi dress styles at STYLE BY AMY feature beautiful florals or bright and vibrant colors in a range of styles perfect for spring or summer. Both florals and geometric shapes are lovely ways to incorporate a touch of summer vibrancy into any look. At the same time, a summery white midi dress can be a stylish take on ‘summer whites,’ both a cooler, refreshing look and one that looks great against sun-kissed skin. Equally, it’s difficult to go wrong with a black midi dress. The ‘little black dress’ might be the much-feted fashion wardrobe staple, but consider a black midi dress to add a bit of interest to your outfit. You can’t really go wrong with either a white midi dress or a black midi dress for an elegant summer evening event, especially when paired with strappy sandals and a good pair of statement earrings.
