Midi dresses are the perfect length for summer days. When you end up halfway between your knees and ankles they favor the figure and lengthen the body on a visual level. Also, if we add a pair of high-heeled sandals or platform shoes, we will see how our silhouette looks slim and we are very comfortable at the same time.
Celebrities like Sara Carbonero have already shown off their favourite design throughout this spring and now the time is right to add a new midi dress to your collection to celebrate the arrival of the ‘new normal’.
If we also add the romantic touch offered by puffed sleeves or details such as fretwork or lace, we obtain garments that are suitable for both day and night and that will always leave us in a good place.
We start with the models that stand out thanks to the use of fretwork and lace. In this case, they are very feminine and fresh designs perfect for the hottest days. Besides, as they are bathed in white, they are very easy to combine and highlight the summer tan (if you are one of the lucky ones who gets a tan in summer).

Beyond the designs with fretwork and lace, neutral colored dresses and discreet prints are also a good option. In these cases, details such as frilly sleeves, flowing patterns and the use of semi-transparent fabrics such as plumeti mesh shine through.

If it exists a print that we find most romantic and feminine that’s the print floral. Season after season there are an endless number of designs in which flowers are the main protagonists. To give it an even more special touch, during the last two years the puffed sleeves (full volume) have been imposed as one of the details that make the difference.

Another print that should not be missing from any summer wardrobe: the polka dots. They remind us of one of the best looks of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and they’re a sure-fire bet when we want to go to the last one without risking too much. Finally, we’ve added a navy blue design in case what suits you best is a plain model but you don’t want to give up the romanticism that comes from the ruffles on the sleeves.
