Whether it’s the pumpkin spiced everything (breads, lattes etc.) or the slightly cooler temperatures, you can tell that fall is slowly but surely becoming a reality. As a true summer lover I’m always sad to see the temperatures drop but one good thing fall always delivers is exceptional fashion.
Maybe it’s the necessary layers or the kick off of fashion week, but whatever it is, there’s no denying fall fashion never leaves me disappointed. One of my favorite trends for this season is the Midi Dress. The opposite of a mini dress, this dress hits between the knee and mid calf & is often form fitting creating a nice sleek silhouette. Classy enough to wear to a business event yet flattering enough to double as weekend wear; the midi dress is a good option for versatility in your wardrobe.
Take a look at a few simple tips for styling them:
- For a more professional look pair it with a blazer or cardigan
- Booties look great with a midi dress and are a perfect pairing for the fall
- Avoid knee boots. The length of the dress plus knee boots will cut off the length of your legs
- If the thought of a fitted dresses makes you nervous, try wearing it with shape wear or try a flared shape midi dress (see below)

I like to call the midi dress the sophisticated sister of the mini dress. Not too long, not too short, its versatility alone makes it a top pick for fall. Transitioning into colder temperatures it can easily be paired with a leather jacket or tights to give you extra warmth.
