Today I am combining my Pretties Series, with the Triple Threat.
This winter I’ve really been into midi skirts. ( You can see how I wore a baby blue midi, and a
striped one here) I’ve been wanting to find a midi dress with the right fit & shape to add to my
closet. I needed this midi dress to be easy to wear. You know how I love to be able to utilize
my pieces in many outfits (see my Triple Threat series), so this dress needed to be glam with the right accessories, and casual when toned down. I am happy to say I found my unicorn. ( and 7 more of them you’ll see below 🙂 )
Long Sleeve Midi Dress $52
Beaded waist cotton sateen dress $71
Heart keyhole cotton sateen sheath dress $55
Back Cutout Midi Sheath Dress $98
Abbey Mesh Inset Midi Dress $68
Scallop trim cotton sateen sheath dress $55
Off the Shoulder Midi Dress $54
First of all let’s chat about the beautiful dresses I found. All of these are versatile midi’s that you can use in a variety of looks. I highly recommend the Off The Shoulder Midi ( that I also have). This dress has a lovely fit, and it’s so easy to re-purpose into a skirt with tops over, or be worn under a chunky cardigan with ankle boots & layered necklaces boho chic style.
In case you are looking for a fancier fabric, try this gorgeous red piece. Very eye catching, and great for special events at a wonderful price point.
This brings me to my midi dress from eShakti. When I had the opportunity to choose a piece from their collection, I was instantly drawn to this navy blue dress (now sold out), with a straight fit, midi length, a belt, and a keyhole opening. I knew I could style it for different occasions, and I’ll show you how.
First a little background information on eShakti. They are a unique company that carry many pretty pieces, but more importantly the company offers customization for each purchase at an affordable price point.
In their own words, each style is cut to order. You enter your measurements, your height, and you even have the option of changing up styles like choosing a type of collar, a belt, or certain length. Totally cool. You need to try at least once to see how the customization process gives you the perfect fit. I feel like I got an amazing fit with my dress.
Now let’s move on to How to Style that midi dress of yours.
How To Style A Midi Dress – Office
Style Tip: I think midi dresses are made for the office. When I was working in marketing, I wore them all the time. All you need to style a midi dress for work is comfortable pumps, a handbag that can carry your phone, tablet, and work related files from time to time, and you are effortlessly dressed for that important meeting.
Here is the kind of bag I love for work. Below find some examples that would work perfectly. Scroll down, and click on any picture to get information on the bags. I added my commentary under. 🙂
Style Tip: Add a warm winter coat, and gloves to your midi dress for walks to, and from your car.
How to Style A Midi Dress – Everyday
Style Tip: I have so much love for re-purposing pieces. I feel like it gives me creative freedom, helps me express my imagination with my outfits, and also lets me multi-task my favorite items. You can do the same, and turn your midi dresses into long, midi skirts. Here I used a denim shirt, and tied it in the front to give that laid-back casual feel to my midi. I could wear this outfit literally anywhere, and not feel overdressed.
Style Tip: In your accessories try using colors that mirror what’s in the dress to support the casual, neutral look. Here I went with silver blue accessories, and a cobalt handbag to add a fun element.
How To Style a Midi Dress – For A Night Out
Style Tip: This type of midi dress is is fabulous for a night-out look. Just add super fun sandals ( mine are from Zara- sold out), a cute clutch preferably in metallics to add some shine to the matte fabric, and stunning accessories like a statement necklace, and cuff bracelet.
Here are some other pretty sandals for a night out. You can click any of them to go to their information pages. I love the bows, pretty colors, and the polka dots. 🙂
