If you’re confused with which dress length to choose, then this guide is for you.

Confused about which dress length to choose from?

Here is our complete style guide to choose the perfect length to add a touch glamour to your demeanor.

Short & Sexy? Choose the Mini:

Mini dresses are usually above knee length, so if you are ready to rock those long and beautiful legs, pick a mini shift dress with a loose silhouette. If you want to sport a short mini then pick a sheath dress to flaunt those sexy curves. 

Minis are a great summer day casual wear. Pair them with funky jewelry, matching accessories, and comfortable footwear. Minis paired with high heels or stiletto look gorgeous and will surely grab some eyeballs. Throw in a cropped jacket to get a complete summer party looks!

Mini dresses are also fun to wear on a girls’ night out with your girlfriends. However, certain occasions might not be appropriate for a mini dress – for example, a formal meeting with a client. 



In between: The Midi

Midis were a fashion statement in the 1950s but they still rule. Midis are not too short like the minis nor as long as a maxi dress but are somewhere in between. Picking up a midi dress can get tricky; you need to ensure the hems end in a place where the leg is narrow to enhance your silhouette. Ideally, you should go with a length that hovers somewhere above the ankle around the calf.

Midis are great summer dresses especially for formal meetings or a day out with friends. Pencil-cut midi skirts paired with a top and heels and a piece of jewelry or two is the best office wear during the summer. The length is conservative with a short slit at the back for easy movement. If you want to sport a vintage look, go for a shirtwaist dress or an A-line dress.

Midis can be of varying lengths (knee length to ankle length) but whatever you choose, it can help you to make the perfect fashion statement be it for a formal occasion or a casual outing. Throw in a jacket or accessories with subtle jewelry and a pair of heels for those formal occasions.




Maxi dress:
