The lastest collection of dresses from New Look shows how the High Street brand is going from strength to strength. From flowing maxi styles, to cute TOWIE-esque skater dresses, New Look proves that this season, any length is allowed. But it is the midi dresses that really catch the eye. For so long this was a length that only the tallest and slimmest of ladies tackled, with a view that on anyone else, the midi was a frumpy option.
We are now beginning to realise that this is wrong, and that, in the same way as the maxi dress can suit anyone providing the cut and style are correct for the body wearing it, the midi dress is actually a really viable option for both day and evening wear. Perfect for those who are not keen on their knees and upper legs, many midi styles also feature 3/4 and long sleeves, addressing another area many women are not happy with.
If you are unsure what type of dress you need, length is a good thing to focus on. A shorter dress might help you show off your flirtatious side, while a longer one might give off an air of elegance or professionalism, depending on the style. A midi dress is nice because it can do both in certain situations, depending on the one you pick. That is because the halfway down your calf length is appropriate for all occasions. That leaves you free to only focus on the pattern or style during midi-dress selection. You can choose a color or print you want and not worry about matching the length to the occasion. Midi dresses can also be worn at any time of year.
Midi’s look great with flats and a denim jacket for daywear, and, as Gwyneth Paltrow shows, adding a pair of killer heels makes an ultra glamorous evening look.
