With the first day of spring this weekend, we officially announce dress season open! Midi dresses are one of the hardest working pieces in your wardrobe – versatile, adaptable to current trends (see puff sleeves, tiered skirts and square necklines for this season) and totally wearable for any occasion.
They stand the test of the seasons, too. Bit chilly? Add some tights, a chunky cardigan and ankle boots. But come summer, the same dress will be just as wearable with bare legs and sandals.
Such ardent fans of the midi dress are we, that we set ourselves the task to find 25 of the best midi dresses for under £50. From ditsy florals to pinstripes, slinky slip dresses to voluminous cotton numbers, ‘spring-perfect’ gingham to animal print, there’s a midi dress for everyone in our edit of the best on the high street right now.
