Having spent the past decade* (*OK, OK… ten months) wearing the same three tracksuits on rotation, it’s hard to imagine a day will come where we’ll be tempted to pop on one of our beloved midi frocks with a splash of bright lipstick. But still, we’re quietly hopeful that day isn’t in the too distant future.
We’ve been optimistically browsing the new-in sections of our favourite online retailers and one thing has become clear: shirred midi dresses are still having quite the moment.
Made popular in the summer of 2019 by that ‘Atlanta’ Sleeper dress that did the influencer circuit (you’ll know it if you see it, big billowing sleeves that can be worn on or off the shoulder, a shirred bust and flowing midi-length hem line), similar styles have finally made their way onto the high street.
So we thought we’d round up our favourite products available to shop now. Y’know, in case you wanted something new to wear when you’re next allowed out for a round of tapas and margaritas with the gang, whenever that will be.
Oh and just FYI? Not only are these dresses incredibly comfy because of the stretchy bust, they’re also perfect for easy-boob access if you’re breastfeeding and easy to wear whilst pregnant.
Obsessed with the navy print and the simple styling with white trainers. Just add a red lip and hold hoops and voila!
A classic style that you’ll come back to again and again – also available in blue.
The perfect special occasion dress, whether that’s a delayed wedding or a long-awaited birthday celebration.
Black polka dot is a print we come back to again and again. Easy to dress up or down.
We love the seventies style of the colours and print on this one, making us incredibly excited for warmer weather.
OBSESSED with this shade of green that will look utterly delicious when paired with flat sandals on an early evening holiday stroll (do we dare dream?!).
A simple but sweet monochrome print that will go with everything making it one of those easy-to-thrown-on frocks you come back to time and time again.
We can’t resist a gingham print and this style looks exceedingly handsome with a chunky boot, making it perfect for that spring transition!
