You know how much I love a good shirt dress – and I REALLY love a midi shirt dress for the office. The length ensures I’m not having to be constantly aware of how I’m sitting or tugging at the sides when I cross my legs. However, the length does also limit your footwear options. Heels are pretty much required at the midi length to maintain proportions. Adding flats to this dress would create a matronly look and stocky silhouette. This is a good tip to remember because flats or heels work with short dresses and maxi dresses, but the same isn’t true for this in between length. Maxi dresses already create an elongated look, and shorter dresses also accentuate the legs since more of them are exposed, but midi-dresses cut off below the knee, near the calf which doesn’t do much for the legs. Wearing heels is fun for me, but if you prefer flats, I would avoid avoid dresses with this tricky length.
