24 throw-on summer midi dresses to make your days a little better

24 throw-on summer midi dresses to make your days a little better

We may just want to wear tracksuits and jumpers, but wearing a dress can make you feel normal. Here are 24 of the best on the high-street right now


There is healing power in a midi dress.

A certain type of magic envelops a person when they put one on. It’s something about the ease in which it moves and the fall of the hem. Shoulders pull back and heads are lifted high.

You can take on the world in a midi dress.

The points between which we travel have a much shorter distance. Most of us move from the garden and back daily, and we don’t know exactly when we can move beyond that point for non-essential means.

In difficult times, fashion can act as an anchor. A type of normality to hold us still and in place.

The best type of fashion right now is easy. Simple styles with room for breathing space, both literally and figuratively. Thankfully, the online high street is aflush with dresses like this. Tiered skirts with puff sleeves. Flowing bodices that make you feel like you are far away, walking by the water with the sun splashing on your face. Fluid designs that help us move through these turbulent times.

We gathered 24 of the best easy-t0-wear midi dresses to buy right now from some of your favourite online stores.
