SHOP THE EDIT
Statement Florals

Statement Florals

If you’re only planning to buy one midi, this should be it. The floral dress is a true year-round staple. Wear with minimal slides in the summer; ankle boots and a wool cardigan in the winter. This season, “moody florals” are the way to go. Think deep tones, painterly prints and, of course, lots of drama. Bonus points for the addition of ruffles and puffed sleeves. Our Boutique Buyers have been scouting the best of the bunch from brands like Lily and Lionel, Primrose Park and Stine Goya.

Silky Chic

Silky Chic

The silky variety of midi dress looks ultra-chic layered under chunky knitwear, paired with equally chunky boots. We’re lusting after Nanushka’s soft-sheen wrap dresses—the hard part is deciding which colour to get (maybe all three?). Scotch & Soda’s pleated scarf print midi is another showstopper. Because trust us, people will be stopping you on the street to ask where you got it.

All-Over Animal

All-Over Animal

We’re big fans of animal print here on Atterley—as are our Boutique Buyers. And everyone on Instagram, it seems. The trend has an enduring appeal thanks to its boundless versatility and edgy undertone. From Ganni to Olivia Rubin, By Iris to Lily and Lionel, countless brands have embraced the motif’s reoccurring revival. Our favourite way to wear animal print? Painted on a midi length dress. The classy cut compliments the cool-girl print, keeping the look youthful and fun. Style yours with a killer pair of white boots.
