I may have gotten ahead of myself the other day when I confidently announced there was a spring-like feel in the air. The next day, it lashed rain and the cold filled my bones – but it’s hard not to be optimistic when it’s still bright come-5 pm. The grand ol’ stretch in the evening is back.
Spring is near. There is no doubt about it. This anticipation causes symptoms such as online purchasing, ridding your wardrobe of black tights, and leaving your umbrella at the door. However, tights are still needed and an umbrella will always be your greatest friend and accessory.

Very soon, we’ll be at a transitional point in the season; where we don’t know what season it is or whether we are hot or cold. At this point, a midi dress is a welcome saviour. Paired with tights, knee-high boots and a coat, they will keep you warm while forever looking effortless. When the weather gets warmer and flowers are in bloom, the tights, knee-highs and coats can be forgotten; and trainers, ankle boots and a leather jacket will do.
Forever flattering and versatile, and a definite positive in the cost per wear department, we scoured the online world for some of the best midi dresses on offer at the moment.
And now, we wait for the sunshine.
