Midi length dresses have become a popular trend and as a spring approaches we’re sure they will continue to be worn by the many.

If you’re not quite sure how to put together a dressed up look featuring a casual midi dress then we have some top tips!

Why I love a casual midi dress

A midi dress is great because it doesn’t matter what body type you are because there are so many different styles. If you want to highlight your waist, prefer a longer length or just like to feel fancy in a midi length dress then i’m sure this is a trend you can get on board with too!

3 Ways to Dress Up the Casual Midi Dress

Find your footing: KILLER BOOTS

You might be thinking that wearing a pair of heeled boots might look a little strange with a midi length dress however it actually works. If you choose to wear a more tightly fitting casual midi dress then wear it with a light denier pair of tights and a pair of  heeled black boots. You can give your look an element of edge by wearing a casual midi dress with a pair of embellished boots or a classic pair of Dr. Martens.  

If you don't think boots are quite right for the event then a pair of lace up heels or sandals will also help dress up this look.
