13 winter midi dresses we’re putting in our shopping baskets this weekend

It’s time to buy some winter midi dresses. We have searched high and low to find 13 of the best you can buy right now


Is there any other fashion item so versatile in its usage than a midi dress?

A coat may just beat it at the post, but only by a nose.

Midi dresses are a year-round style piece. One you buy at the start of summer while dreaming of hazy nights, which then becomes the one you wear when the haze turns to winter darkness. All of the women I know have one in their wardrobe arsenal. Whether they are for casual wear or special occasions, the midi is their go-to.

A little more luxe

Winter midi styles differ from their summer counterparts. The materials are sumptuous; with lace, satin and wool replacing the sheer summer fabrics. Colours are more subdued, the silhouettes are structured, and sleeves come full length. It’s all just a little more luxe.

The winter midi isn’t hitting full sparkle speed just yet. These dresses are the calm before the party storm. Yes, they can befit an occasion, but they are also for the office and weekend brunch too.

Arket has a strong selection this season with styles to suit every shape and taste. The statement blue satin number is perfect for those who want to make an impact, while the baby pink gathered dress is perfect for those who want to be chic without the loudness.

Our favourite is the Mia floral funnel neck dress from Warehouse. It has the right amount of seventies nostalgia without being overkill, and it will look great over knee-high boots or platform heels.
