Perennially chic and flattering (because a modest midi covers literally everything), the style is perfect for every season (with or without tights) and occasion (Supergas or stilettos).
As autumn blows in and shop shelves are filled with a roster of new midi offerings, it’s hard to sort the cute from the cr*p but the buyers at M&S have done the hard work for us.
I’m forever thankful for the trusty midi dress.
Mid-length hemlines have been on the rise (figuratively, fear not) for several seasons now, but they’re one of those styles that will seemingly never go out of style.
Each season without fail, there’s that *one* dress from M&S that seems to fly off the shelves; that one look you see everyone wearing on the tube or at winter weddings.
The dress everyone’s snapping up this season? The M&S Floral Belted Midi Shirt Dress, £39.50
The floral print midi dress features in the high street stalwart’s Autumn Favourites campaign and has been hugely popular with customers. It also probably helps that the dress was worn recently by Holly Willoughby in an at-home shoot whilst on a post-holiday quarantine, photographed by her son Harry. If it’s good enough for Holly…
With its classic collar neckline and soft floral design, the midi length dress has a flattering button-up front and cosy long sleeves. It also has pockets (great for storing snacks!) and a detachable belt to define the waist. Like with much of M&S sustainably-focussed clothes, this dress is made with sustainably sourced viscose.
It’s already sold out in several sizes online so we predict a bit of a stampede. Get it while you can…
