Currently Craving | Midi Dresses.

*{This post was written in collaboration with Peek & Cloppenburg}


Midi dresses were on my 'this will never be in my wardrobe'-list for ages and now I just can't get enough of them. I am not someone who is very comfortable with getting their legs out a lot in summers so on milder days I wear tights and on the hot days, I would pick a maxi dress. But for some reason, I always thought midi dresses are so unflattering. I still think there are more flattering dress lengths but it all depends on the cut of the individual dress. 

I have talked about my obsession with linen in a previous post a few weeks back. Around this time I saw Lydia Millen talking about a beige midi linen dress she got and it looked stunning on her. And to my surprise, it was pretty affordable. I was debating whether I should get it or not and just as I was about to place the order it sold out... of course. And this is when I REALLY wanted it. So typical, right? So I started stalking this dress every day until it finally came into stock in my size. And this is how my obsession started.

I fell even more in love when it finally arrived. The shape is flattering, the color is gorgeous.. and since then I am hooked on midi dresses. They look so put together and classy.. I want them all. 

As always I have linked a few of my fave midi dresses for you. I hope you get inspired.
1. Gant 2. Blugirl Folies 3. MBYM 4. Max Mara 5. True Decadence
6. Coast 7. Swing 8. Vila 9. Boss 10. Jake's Cocktail

  4. I'm the same way with you Lisa! For the longest time I though midi dresses were only for older, more mature women and made a point to steer clear and far away from them. However, my opinion has completely changed and I now thing they can be one of the most flattering styles out there! I too particularly like the linen ones, and even though every other person has this dress, the white one with the buttons down the middle is just so beautiful! Now I must admit, I don't actually wear midi dresses myself because I find being on the more petit side with shorter legs, the style cuts me off and makes me appear even shorter. However, I can now say that although I do not wear this style I now think it's one everyone should at least try :) Happy Sunday!

  8. Great post! I do love the look of midi dresses, but I have not yet found a length that seems to do anything for my legs as I am not the tallest! :D but this post inspired me to keep in looking for one I love as they do look amazing and they are also great to wear to the office!

  20. I can totally relate to you, until last year I believed midi dresses go more on the mature and feminine side! The more and more I start wearing midi dresses I've realized how versatile and young they can be, it totally depends on how you style it! The lace ones are what I love the most!
    Hope you're having an amazing week!

  58. Urgh, that is always the way. I've been obsessing over horn buttons and off the shoulder tops. I found one and brought it only to get an email saying it's out of stock. I found another on ASOS not really similar but it will do but I'm not so sure I'm going to get it before I leave for Europe. Ahhhh. Must be something in the water

  60. This is great! I used to be so uncomfortable in dressed that dipped below the knee. I didn't really find them appealing before, but things have change for the better. I have been loving midi dresses as well. They are wonderful and I always feel summer ready. It has rained all summer in NYC. When I wore a midi dress, I was prepared for the chillier temperatures and the more humid ones. Thanks for sharing, Lisa. x
