10 wardrobe-revitalising midi dresses that work for every occasion

Posted by for Fashion

One dress to rule them all – there’s nothing that these effortlessly chic, ultra-versatile midi dresses can’t do. 

When it comes to curating our spring wardrobes, we’re looking for pieces that work as hard as we do. From the timeless trench coat to the investment handbags that we’ll love to wear for years to come, we’re looking for the pieces that we really can’t live without.  As the days start to get longer our thoughts are turning to one item in particular: the perfect new season dress. 

Buying less starts with buying better, we’re not looking to buy a different disposable dress for every occasion, instead we want to invest in a  dress that hit all the right style notes at every event in our calendar. It needs to be versatile enough to take us straight from the office to drinks and dinner (because who has time to go home and change?) and be chic enough to work for a birthday brunch, but not so formal that they can’t be styled for a spring evening spent on a rooftop terrace. 

Oh, and if they could offer just the right amount of sophistication to be worn for a summer wedding too, that would be ideal. Us, demanding? Well, of course. While our list of criteria for the perfect dress might sound impossible to meet, there is one piece that really can tick every box. 

Enter the wardrobe hero that is the midi dress. 

From the mood-boosting florals that will spark joy in your wardrobe to the broderie anglaise beauty that will keep you feeling cool when the office starts to get stuffy, these are the midi dresses that are going above and beyond to earn their hero status.
