Step aside maxis and minis — it’s time for midis to shine! Hitting right at or slightly below the knee, midi-length dresses and skirts are definitely a welcome blast from the past. They may have been all the rage in the ’40s, but styles ranging from bright floral prints to flowy fabrics have revitalized them, making them perfect for gals of this century as well. As we eagerly await warmer temperatures, here are 15 fashionable and modern ways for you to get ready for spring’s midi trend!
1. Lashes of London Wrap Dress ($46): The contrasting piping and peekaboo cutout midriff adds a fun and flirty touch to this bright floral print.
2. ASOS In Lace Print ($82): The cuffed sleeve paired with the ornamental lace print make this dress fit for a sophisticated night out.
3. Fionna Porcelain Printed Midi ($28): A beautifully delicate pattern for the polished and dainty part in all of us.

8. B. Jones Style Skirt ($90): We love that this vintage midi skirt is reminiscent of the original skirts from the ’40s. We’re also suckers for anything with box pleats.

13. Zara Floral Dress ($40): Yup, prints that look like your grandmother’s couch are coming back too. And the best part of this dress? It has pockets!
15. Zara Printed Dress ($50): With its combination of a sleek boat neck and an extremely colorful floral print, this dress basically embodies everything that is spring fashion.
