When shopping for dresses it frequently seems like the challenge isn’t just finding dresses in the right color or pattern but also finding dresses that are the right length. You may want a dress that is short or even tunic length or a super long maxi dress and unfortunately finding that perfect length can often seem like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. With the resurgence of short skirts and maxi dresses this season finding much longer dresses is much more accessible, but if you are looking for something that is in between the ultra long length and the short dresses about the knee consider a few of these great ¾ length dresses.
The Malina V Neck Tie Dress is a great ¾ length dress that is a perfect combination of beautiful and versatile. It is part of Velvet’s baby jersey collection so made of super soft jersey cotton which allows you the flexibility of wearing it to casual functions as well as dressing it up with accessories for dressier occasions. It is lined with a second layer of cotton so it is a little warmer than your basic cotton dress. The dress also features a tie at the base of the v neckline which is a great feminine touch. The dress also features an empire waist giving it an added fit with an additional element of distinction. It is a basic black which makes it a great classic dress and has long sleeves and of course it is 3/4 length.
As another example of a great ¾ length dress consider Velvet’s Chapel dress which features a beautiful Spanish tile pattern. The pattern can be found in either black or red. This dress is fitted and the fabric is a rayon and lycra blend which gives it just the right amount of cling and fit. The dress also features elbow length sleeves and a v neck with a subtle knot at the base of the v. The pattern really sets this dress apart and is a great blend of distinction, but not over the top. The dress of course also features that ¾ length and is absolutely stunning on. Alternatively, for similar versions of this dress in a solid color consider the sister version of this dress is the, Anais V Neck dress, again by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer. This dress is a similar style, but it is a solid color and is available in eggplant a deep purple color with a hint of blue. Again this dress is fitted and features a rayon lycra blend giving it cling.
As you can see, each of these dresses gives you a distinctive look and is a great mid-calf length option for your wardrobe. Another alternative to a mid-calf length dress is a longer or mid-calf skirt. The mid-calf length skirts are very popular this season. We love the Fanya skirt as a great flared skirt that hits well below the knee. It also features an asymmetrical hem for added distinction. Of course you can also add length to a dress look by wearing leggings underneath.
