As the never-ending quest to master creative layering methods continues, we thought today would be a good day for a deep dive on the long-sleeve midi dresses. As the Goldilocks of dresses (not too long, not too short), the midi hits right below your knee, with silhouettes that vary from body-conscious to super floaty. If you're already acquainted with midi sundresses but haven't yet brought a long-sleeve version into your wardrobe, be advised that they pair well with pretty much everything.
Layer a shorter skirt over the midi dress for a more daring look, belt it to change the silhouette, wear a pair of tall boots that are partially hidden by the skirt to create an interesting silhouette, or pair a cropped leather jacket over it for an edgier vibe. No matter your perfect fit, you’ll find it here — these 15 frocks are begging to be a part of your closet and will be a no-fail option for post-lockdown life or random Wednesdays when you just feel like dressing up.
