This season's most sophisticated going out dresses all have something in common: a midi length. Great news for curvy ladies tired of the pressure to go bare-legged come a night on the town and for tall ladies whose lithe limbs feel a little too 'on show' in a mini dress. The midi dress, when worn correctly, is a flattering going out dress for every size and shape and can be easily updated to take you from secretary chic to seriously sexy lady. Here's how...

Unless you've been hiding under a rock you'll know all about the revival of the wiggle dress. And a classic wiggle dress, worthy of Mad Men's Joan, works best in a midi length. This curve-enhancing dress style will nip and tuck you in all the right places and because it finishes below the knee will give the illusion of a hourglass shape and slimmer, longer legs. A definite favourite with the boys!
