Best Midi Dresses Tested & Reviewed

Any day at BAZAAR office, editors conduct designer interviews and refine essential spring 2023 trend guides while wearing the best midi dresses. Midi dresses have the same work-friendly touches as the best black blazers and flowy dress pants, with unique cuts, lengths and patterns that add an extra personality to each. No two editors own exactly the same midi dresses, but they all share the same lofty attitude.

For me as a fashion editor and midi dress connoisseur, Dôen, Tove and Staud are some of the many labels designing the best midi dresses of the moment. What defines my most worn dresses can be difficult to put into words. I know my favorites from style to style: one hits the exact height to accentuate a tall leather boot, another has a swinging skirt that turns a hallway walk into a strut. Aside from midi lengths that evoke big feelings, I asked Alison Cohn, Assistant Editor of Fashion News and also a midi dress expert, to define the essential characteristics of the best versions worth buying. She said to me, “The perfect midi dress balances structure and softness, with a flowy skirt and fitted bodice. I especially love shirt dresses.”

Many of the best midi dresses feel brand new after a few wears simply by swapping out your shoes, Cohn added. “I pair them with knee-high boots for an easy transition into transitional clothing and sandals with flat or block heels once it’s warm outside,” she said. Experimenting with layers — like a sheer bodysuit under a sleeveless style or a half-tucked sweater over a full-skirted dress — also extends their longevity.
