Beautiful & Versatile Midi Designer Day Dresses

Looking for designer day dresses that are both chic and versatile? We have you covered. Firstly, the striped wool-blend jersey dress by Chloé somehow has us craving cooler weather! Its high ruffle neckline, long fitted sleeves, and relaxed fit midi length are timelessly chic. Not to mention the addition of its classic, red and white horizontal stripes. We plan on styling this beauty with ankle boots and a belted waist the moment summer’s over!

Meanwhile, we continue to swoon over the stunning tiered midi dress by Cinq À Sept. Its flawless shade of natural vanilla ivory is a dream come true for any closet. Additionally, it’s instantly elegant, and brilliantly versatile thanks to its neutral color palette, and pretty tiered construction. Wear it loose with ankle boots for a casual day look. Alternatively, dress it up a little with a thin, colored belt to define your waist and add a little contrast.

The Prettiest Designer Dresses We Need In Our Closets

These designer day dresses are so incredibly pretty, we just can’t go on without them! Take the printed puff sleeve maxi dress by & Other Stories, for example. It’s the perfect ankle-length silhouette decorated with the most beautiful pink and green floral print. Additionally, it even has a floaty flounced hem for good measure. Therefore, we suggest you wear this dress now with flats or heels for your daytime events. Then, simply add boots and knitwear for fall. We plan on getting as much wear out of this beautiful piece as possible!

Meanwhile, your calendar may well be filling up with baby showers, engagement parties, and even dressy brunches. If it is, the Carolena dress by Reformation couldn’t be more perfect. Its timeless black and white print sets an instantly elegant tone. Additionally, its gathered elbow-length sleeves and thigh-high split add a classic, yet sultry touch.
