Ankle dresses have become my new favorite and they are not midi dresses at all. These are the style that will suit any body type and in fact will make you look taller.
These look more elegant and in fact wearable compared to maxi dresses and not as frumpy as midi dresses. So, if you are like some length in your dresses but hate feeling like you are drowning in maxi dresses then you will absolutely love them.
If you are a fan of midi dresses, but they just don’t look modern at all no matter how you style them, then your answer are ankle length dresses.
This year, I have been looking at so many of these gorgeous ones, and I wanted to share some of my top favorites so you don’t have to do the searching and figuring out.
Anthropologie - Felipa Maxi Dress
Don’t go by the name of the dress, this dress is ankle length specially with wide elastic waist band, I love how pretty this victorian style dress looks. The buttoned V neck gives a casual vibe to the dress but at the same time, the ruffle details and puff sleeves the dress also looks elegant and really feminine. This means that it is really versatile and you can style it with either sneakers or sandals depending on the occasion.
This is the reason ankle length dresses can be so versatile compared to the other variations.
I also love the print of the dress, its one of my favorite Batik print with blue, pink and yellow colors, all three of them are perfect for summer and my favorites colors.
This dress also comes in another color, but if you are looking for a summer dress, then this is it.
Ann Taylor - Floral Gathered Waist Maxi Dress
This is a new arrival and exclusively available online on Anntaylor and has my hearts rested on it. The color is subtle blush with tones of terra-cotta which looks so elegant as well as fun to wear.
The gathered waist adds more feminity and elegance to the dress. But I love that its also sleeveless which is tough to find anywhere this year, they either have sleeves or have tie straps which is not as versatile.
The print on the dress are subtle blue leaves that look so pretty and elegant. I absolutely see myself creating a bohemian look with this dress and a pair of scrappy flats, and a summer straw hat.
& other Stories - Puff Sleeve Maxi Wrap Dress
Puff sleeve dresses are here to stay and I honestly cannot get enough of them. But finding one that also looks elegant and modern has become a bit tough. I found a great combination of that in this wrap ankle length dress from & Other Stories, a brand that I have honestly fallen is love with.
Most of the pieces in there collections are simple and yet elegant that will look great on any women. This pastel mint dress looks so beautiful in the silhouette. Usually wrap dresses have deeper neckline making it a bit difficult for someone like myself with fuller chest. But this dress’s neckline looks perfectly modest.
The print is more of mosaic style white prints that are so subtle that you can hardly notice. And the ruffle wide hem add a bit more feminine curve to anyones look.
Style & Co - Striped Sleeveless Maxi Dress
If you are a casual dress lover and looking for the perfect T shirt dress that also looks nice then this dress is for you. This dress from Style & Co had me by surprise. I love that the stripe details and the traceback style makes it really casual but at the same time, the ruffle hem adds a feminine touch.
I honestly could not figure out which color would be my favorite but this black and white stripe one will be the perfect addition to anyone’s closet. It looks classic and causal, paired with a denim jacket, and loafers or sneakers, you can create and effortless chic summer look.
Striped dresses are like always in style don’t you think?
Mano Frill Cotton Dress
Cotton dress are a must have for summer and this one from Mango is giving me major runway vibes. If you haven’t already figured out, I am a huge fan of Mango. The brand boast some amazing modern designs for the entire family.
Clean silhouettes and simple designs makes each of their pieces timeless and versatile. This tiered style dress is exactly that. The color is a mix of green and sage which brings the perfect summer vibe.
I love that its a solid color dress because this helps enhance the tiered hems and the gathered neckline which looks greek like.
The dress s fully lined, so no need to figure what to wear underneath and with 100% cotton you can be assured that you won’t be dying in the heat.
I could literally picture myself on vacation on a beautiful resort wearing this gorgeous dress. Already adding this to my cart.
