For Miley Cyrus, mini dresses are OUT and midi dresses are IN.

But don’t think for a second that she’s started becoming shy about baring body parts. Miley might like demure hem lengths now but she also likes them with belly-showing cropped tops, rock-inspired spikes and studs, and revealing side cutouts:

The mini dress has ruled the fashion scene for some time now so this new midi length is a refreshing change. It makes a body-con dress look more sophisticated and gives the illusion of extra height. The look can be sexy and elegant but as Miley Cyrus has shown, can be young and edgy too if you choose!

Try the midi dress trend on for size and start with these basic little black dresses:

Or if you’re ready to dive head first into it, go for these bold prints straight away:

Midi dresses for womenTopshop tie dye midi dress, $64.00; Felicity & Coco stripe jersey midi dress, $118.00; Topshop ‘Clutter Front’ print dress, $64.00

The key to the midi dress is to choose one with a pencil skirt cut. That way, you’ll avoid looking dowdy and look sleek and streamlined instead. For footwear, we like a pointy-toed pump. Switch them out for brightly colored sandals once spring comes around.
