Midi dresses are having a real moment right now, thanks to our obsession with 90’s slip dresses and 2000’s fashion. Basically, If Monica and Rachel wore it—we want it, and so our hunt for the perfect midi dress is on. A staple part of any capsule wardrobe, they make the best summer dresses, and thanks to Warehouse, we may have found the perfect one—and it’s on sale too.
The beauty of the midi dress is that they can be dressed up and down and no matter what you do, you'll look effortlessly cool and put together.
Even if you hate wearing dresses, there’s something appealing about throwing on one garment that makes you look cute, without worrying about it blowing up in the wind, or showing your pants when you bend over.
Warehouse has struck the perfect balance between dressy and edgy, and not only is it a 90’s classic —it also features the 2021 cut-out trends, making it perfect for summer and a night out.

It’s perfectly minimal, with a gorgeous silhouette and puffy sleeves. It features a cut-out at the sides and Warehouse describes it as ‘ your go-to piece, that’ll always have you covered, no matter what the occasion.'
Pair it with an oversized denim jacket, or a bright chunky cardigan, or opt for chunky boots or sandals and a cute colorful mini bag and you’ve got yourself one hell of a look.

The same beautifully minimal silhouette, but shorter. It is the same satin material with side cutouts and adorable puffy sleeves.
This dress will make you look sophisticated, and cool with minimal effort. Either pair with heels for the perfect date-night look or throw on some dad trainers, or better yet, loafers for a chic vibe.
We first saw the midi appear back on our radar, thanks to Instagram's famous brand, House of Sunny who’s Hockney dress has been spotted on every influencer on the planet and even Kendall Jenner herself.
Since then, you can find a midi-dress in every style, pattern, and color imaginable, from all your favorite brands.

This dress features the same side cutouts as the Warehouse dress but is instead sleeveless - which is ideal for those who want a more understated look.
It features a low-cut neckline and creates a super flattering silhouette. This dress would look gorgeous with chunky, gold jewellery and some sandals.
Similar to the H&M dress this has the trendy side cutouts but is more like a slip dress.
It has spaghetti straps, lace details, and a side leg split.
We can picture this dress paired with some cowboy boots or worn with a white-T underneath.
This dress from & Other Stories features a similar puff sleeve as the Warehouse dress.
This dress gives off some serious 'cottagecore' vibes and we love it. it's made from organic cotton and features ruching around the waist.
