Tips to pick the best midi dress for you

The classic midi dress, it's a must-have in every fashionista's wardrobe. Beginning Boutique has the latest designs and dress styles for the confident babes of today. So how do you choose a midi dress that's right for you? Here are our top tips to pick the best midi dress for you:

  1. The length of the dress. We want you to show off those lovely legs without compromising height. The best way to do that? Choose a length that is slightly above or below mid-calf. This creates the illusion of a longer dress.
  2. Buy a dress you love. If you love it, flaunt it. And if you love your midi dress, well, you'll be wearing it all season long, heck you'll be wearing it all year long! So choose wisely babes!
  3. Prints and Solids. Whether you're buying a floral midi dress for that summer picnic or dazzling your party guests in a solid black strapless outfit, choosing the right colour midi dress is essential to make a bold statement.

Fashionable and affordable knee length summer dresses 

Babes, this summer we want you looking your best and showing off your summer bod with our wonderful party dresses! With new arrivals dropping in hot every week, you'll have plenty of options for affordable summer dresses to complete your fashion wardrobe.

Comfy and cool shirt dresses

Summer is here and it is hot, hot, hot! Stay cool and comfy with our top picks for shirt dresses. Just what you need to keep you cool while still looking hot!

  1. The T Shirt dress. It's casual comfort at its best. Just the sleeve dress outfit you need when you don't feel like being constricted by pants or a tight fitting dress. It's understated and stylish. Keep it casual or jazz it up with a denim jacket.
  2. The Shirt dress. If you like buttons and a collar neckline, this ones for you babes. Often made from cotton or linen blend, this breezy dress is guaranteed to keep you comfy and cool.
  3. The Smock Dress.  A pretty little number for that girlish charm. Slip into a ruched smock dress crafted from poplin, breathable fabric so you'll be looking gorgeous and staying cool as you enjoy a picnic in the park.
  4. The Gingham Dress.  This highly popular dress is all the rage now and for good reason too. Look stylish in this beautiful breathable fabric, absolutely perfect for picnics or running errands.

  1. Colour. Lighter tones are a big fav. Check out pastels, floral prints, whites and creams or go bold and make a statement with bright orange, rust, yellow and browns.
  2. Fabric. Keep it cool babes. We want lightweight fabric for that added comfort, think chiffon, cotton or gingham.  
  3. Style. Opt for loose fitting styles for breezy comfort. Strappy dresses are an awesome choice this summer. Embrace the fun in the sun with our stylish pieces.
