The all-in-one outfit hack for dark winter mornings

COURTESY

The midi dress might just be the Kylie Jenner of hemlines in 2019 – you’ve been seeing them around for a while, but they’re still super popular and don’t seem to be fading out of the spotlight any time soon – and you can’t quite put your finger on why. And just when you think you’ve seen it all – long sleeve midi dresses, body-con midi dresses, wrap midi dresses…a new shape or print comes out and BOOM, you’re whipping out the bank card faster than a newly-launched Lip Kit on its way to sell out. The compulsion is inexplicable.

Perhaps it’s the fact that there’s a midi dress to flatter every body type. Or the fact that they are often seasonless, with many styles working well year-round. Our bet? Midi-hemlines make great bang for your buck, since they’re appropriate enough to wear to work, but still feel cute enough to wear out-of-hours.

Below, our edit of the 21 best midi dresses for every occasion. Pick one, and you can practically get dressed in the dark – just add a roll-neck or some boots and you’re out the door. Easy.
