The Simple Silhouette Every Girl Should Own

My favorite of my own features has always been my legs, and I grew up with a mother who encouraged me to “flaunt ’em while you’ve got ’em” – so when it comes to dresses, I’ve always gravitated towards shorter styles. In recent years, I’ve also gone the opposite direction and have started to stock my closet with a few go-to maxi dresses that embody the boho-chic vibe that you all know I love. But what’s been missing from my life (and from my closet), is a third option: the midi dress. The midi silhouette is one that I had previously written off as being a bit too conservative and almost school marm-ish. However, I’ve come to find that the simple silhouette is perfect for dressing up or down – plus, you can quickly layer the piece with a cool denim jacket or sleek leather moto if you’re still experiencing some chillier evenings. I paired this flounce midi (also available in white and blush, and under $60!) with my go-to denim jacket and lace-up sandals for a casual evening out. I plan to recycle the look with beaded tassel earrings and heels for a more formal occasion.
