Midi Dresses Were Made for Spring—Here Are 25 We're Obsessed With Right Now

When it comes to the building blocks of an incredible wardrobe, the easy-to-wear midi dress is one staple no woman should be without. Whether it’s a wrap dress, a shirtdress or a chic ribbed knit dress, the best midi dresses have the power to carry your wardrobe through the transitional weather of spring straight into the depths of summer and beyond.

Why do we love them so much? It’s simple. You can pair them with trainers on the weekend or with loafers, mules or boots for the office. (You can even wear them with sandals for a wedding.) You can slip a T-shirt, blouse or roll-neck underneath or pull on a slouchy jumper or belt-up a classic trench over them. Basically, the midi dress has the potential to be the most versatile item in any wardrobe. There’s also a style and shape to suit everyone, so whether you’re a floral puff-sleeved-dress kind of girl or more of a slip-dress minimalist, this is the staple that you can reliably turn to for any and all occasions.
