We've officially reached spring, and that's good news for our wardrobes as beautiful new season midi dresses have started to drop on the high street.

I love updating my collection as the versatile piece can be worn with boots or trainers in the cooler weather, and sandals or slides when we reach peak summer, making them a worthy fashion investment.

From my high street go-to & Other Stories to celebrity-favourite Reformation, now is the time to shop the new-in styles. Expect lighter, brighter colours, breezy fabrics and fun prints. Think white, pink, green, and floral options, as well as long sleeve and satin styles. Plus, of course, I've included a classic black midi dress or two.

Royals and celebrities wearing midi dresses

It's arguably a wardrobe staple, but you'll see some royals wearing midi dresses more than others, and none more so than the Princess of Wales. She's synonymous with a printed midi, pictured here in Rixo's Izzy Dress. The 42-year-old royal looked effortlessly elegant, wearing the look with fresh-faced makeup and a pair of Castaner wedge espadrilles. Kate also likes to pair a floral midi dress with her Superga Cotu classic trainers.

Jennifer Lopez is another celeb who loves a midi, and was spotted wearing Reformation's Tagliatelle dress on her honeymoon in Paris. The Hollywood star looked beautiful in the breezy floral linen dress, which she styled with heeled sandals and oversized sunnies.

You can't go wrong with a white midi dress in the spring/summer season, as proven by Victoria Beckham. Featuring subtle stripes in a floaty cut, I love how she's styled it with colour pop shoes.

How I chose the best midi dresses

  • New-in: Your wardrobe deserves a new season refresh, so everything in this edit is from the just-dropped spring collections.
  • Style: Spring is synonymous with floral prints so I've made sure to include the prettiest ones available to shop. For colours, I've mostly gone for neutrals, pastels and brighter hues.
  • Cut: In the warmer weather most of us tend to lean towards floatier, breezy cuts and dresses with shorter sleeves or spaghetti straps, so I've considered this while curating my edit.
  • Fabrics: Our wool-blend midi dresses are now firmly in our winter wardrobes, making way for more lightweight fabrics like linen and pure cotton.
