Why We 100% LOVE These Cotton Midi Dresses
Whether you’re shopping for a new look, updating your wardrobe or stocking up on some firm favourites, cotton midi dresses are a great option with an endless variety of designs, styles and sizes to suit all body shapes and every wardrobe.
What is a Cotton Midi Dress?Let’s start with the basics. First, we need to delve into why it’s called a midi dress. The term midi refers to any dress that sits above the ankles but more than two inches below the knee (usually about half way up the calf). In comparison, maxi dresses reach the ankle, and knee length dresses sit on the knees (and no more than two inches below).
The good thing about midi dresses is that the length means you can wear them all year round. They’re long enough to keep your legs warm in cooler weather (particularly if you pair them with ankle boots) but short enough to let the air flow in summer as well. They’re available in a huge range of colours, designs and style options. Choose from sleeveless belted midi dresses to long-sleeve kaftan-style options. Wondering about footwear? A midi dress looks as great with wedges as it does with flip flops or a canvas sneaker.
Now, let’s talk material. Cotton is a natural material which gives it an abundance of benefits. It’s versatile which allows manufacturers to create vibrant or pastel designs using dye that won’t fade easily. Cotton is comfortable and hypo-allergenic which makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin, and because cotton traps air within the fabric, it’s cool in summer and warm in winter so it’s perfect all year round.

The Farrah Dress is simply gorgeous and it’s available in a range of colours and patterns. It has a tassel-tie neckline, the skirt is floaty, and it’s not too long – it sits around that two-inch mark from the knee on most women. The Sasha dress is similar but slightly shorter.
