We’ll take you through what to pair with a midi dress, how and where you can wear one in style, and quite possibly even served up some suggestions on your own unique creations using the iconic piece.
The most important thing you need to know is that whether you’re wondering how to wear a midi dress or if there’s just something about this style that catches your eye, it will be easy for you with any of these tips.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the clothes we have in our closets, and then we think about what to wear when we go out and it can make our head spin. You could end up either spending an inordinate amount of time trying on different outfits or you might end up just putting on a pair of jeans with your favorite tee shirt and call it a day. In order to take some of the pressure off of ourselves and to hopefully make it a little bit easier, I have put together a list of what I wear with my midi dresses.
Shoes For Midi Dresses:
Velvet Boots (black) – These are pretty much necessary unless you are going for a more formal look, but make sure that you are comfortable in them. They also can be paired with knee high boots for a little bit more height and elegance.
Heels – You can either pair your shoes with a dress or wear them on their own for a more elegant look. The shoes you choose should have a heel of about an inch and half, but make sure they aren’t too high. You don’t want to be falling over all night long.
Brown Leather Boots – With heels comes the risk of growing old before your time, so you may want to choose boots that are more towards the casual side and will look appropriate with any of your summer dresses.
Boots – This isn’t really necessary, but if you are going to wear boots to a summer party or something and want to pair them with your dress then this is the way to go. There are plenty of options available whether it be lace up boots, sandals or just a plain old pair of sneakers.
Flats – These can be worn with any shoes and they add a nice touch. They are generally appropriate for the office and more acceptable on dates than heels would be.
Sandals – These are my favorite in the summer because they make you feel free and relaxed. They are also effortless and can be worn with any outfit, whether it be a formal summer dress or just a pair of jeans.
Sneakers – If you are going for something more casual then sneakers are probably your best bet. Make sure that you have a pair that will look okay with your dress, rather than to just wear them on their own.
Flip Flops – These are great to have along when you are going to the beach or just want to have something comfortable to walk around in from place to place. They are great to have if you are going to a party or event and just want something to change into after you get there.
Fedora Hat – A fedora is a very popular hat for summer, as it can be worn with anything and also has the charm of being vintage. It will pair well with a nice dress and is fun to wear if you are going out to the beach, having a picnic or just hanging out with friends.
Baseball Cap – No matter what you are wearing, this cap will go with it. They make everything more casual and are a great gift for men, women, boys or girls.
Headbands – This is a great accessory for any women, whether she just wants to stay comfortable in the summer or is looking to spice up her outfit. It can be worn with anything from a formal dress to a pair of jeans and will really add some style and flair.
Trilby Hat – This hat is similar to a fedora but more in line with the fashion sense of today than something that came out of an old movie. It is still a good eye catcher and will look nice with any dress or outfit you get.
Veil Headband – This is perfect for women that are looking for something simple and chic to complete an outfit. It can be worn in formal situations and can also be worn out on the town with a pair of jeans or shorts.
Fringe Hat – This hat is another one that will help you get away with wearing something more casual than you would normally wear. It can be worn with jeans, shorts and even a dress.
Hair & Hair Accessories
Bobby Pins – These are probably the easiest way to add some flair to your hair without having to worry about whether or not your hair is done up well or if you are going to look ridiculous. Bobby pins make anything look better.
Fascinator – This can be worn with any of your dresses and it will really make you look like a lady that knows what she is doing. It will help keep you from looking too casual, and if done correctly will really complement the rest of your outfit.
Loose Bangs / Loose Hair – This is a bit controversial because it can look good or it can look tacky depending on the person wearing it. If you are going for a more relaxed look then this will really add to your ensemble, but if not then try to keep them out of the way as much as possible.
Necklaces & Bracelets
The necklace is probably the most versatile piece of jewelry because it can be worn with everything from dresses to t-shirts and even jeans. You can get a long necklace that can be wrapped around the wrist for more of a formal look and can even be worn with a hat as well.
Beaded Necklace – This necklace will really draw attention to your face, and if you are planning on wearing a dress that is a little low cut then show off some skin with this gorgeous piece of jewelry. It can be worn with anything from casual dresses to formal summer outfits.
Bracelets – This is the minimal version that you can wear with anything and it will really make your outfit pop if you decide to go for something a little more casual. It can be worn with shorts or dresses, but you don’t want to go overboard and have it looking like a costume.
Watch – This is probably the most common accessory that a woman will wear when she goes out to the club or just wants to look nice. It can complement any outfit, be worn with jeans or a nice dress. It is also a great gift for your friends if you are looking for something that they can wear with virtually any of their outfits.
