Modesty Returns With The Mid-Calf Dress!
Do we have “Mad Men” to thank for the return to ’50s styling and modest silhouettes? While celebrities have been strutting around in the smallest and sheerest items on the market, runway designs have begun to take a more modest approach, reminiscent of the pieces our elder family members once wore. It’s time to button up, hide those knees, and learn to show off your figure thanks to the curves of a dress, rather than navigate skimpy and see-though designs. Meet the midi dress, which hits your calves instead of mid-(or high) thigh, tucks in the waist, and welcomes a discreet look back into your wardrobe. Given the recent trend of showing it all off to the world in bras as tops and lingerie as outerwear, the return to a meeker look will undoubtedly be a welcome change. But if you’re too afraid to buy a brand-new dress to try out the trend, we’d suggest going vintage trolling or snipping off the bottom of one of the few maxi dresses taking up space in your closet.
