When shopping for dresses it frequently seems like finding mid-calf length dresses or dresses that hit below the knee is like finding a needle in a haystack. With the resurgence of 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 mid-calf dress possibilities.
The Malina V Neck Tie Dress is a great mid-calf length dress that is so 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. Personally, I love the tie at the base of the v neckline for added detail. The dress also features an empire waist giving it added detail. It is a basic black which never hurts and has long sleeves and of course it is a mid-calf length. Designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer is known for their great use of cottons, but they also feature a slinky rayon collection which is a rayon blend for a dressier look.
Velvet’s Chapel dress features a Spanish tile pattern currently available in black or red with a v neckline. This dress is fitted and the fabric is a rayon and lycra blend which gives it just the right amount of cling. The pattern is really a standout and looks extremely classy on. Of course most importantly, this dress also features a longer length with the mid-calf length which we greatly appreciate.
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 Lija skirt as a great flared skirt that hits past the knee. Another way to add length to a dress look is to wear leggings underneath.
There really are a variety of possibilities and options for mid-calf length dresses and when you mix in the option of longer length skirts or combined with leggings finding possible dress options is much more accessible. Of course it is also easy to find maxi dresses which are the ultimate in long length if it is simply the long length you are after. In either case, these dresses are great additions to any wardrobe and are versatile pieces that will last you for many more seasons to come.
