12 Long-Sleeve Midi Dresses For Your Winter Wardrobe

As the never-ending quest to master creative layering throughout the winter months continues, we thought today would be a good day for a deep dive on the long-sleeve midi dress. As the Goldilocks of lengths (not too long, not too short), the midi hits right below your knee, with styles that vary from figure-hugging to flowy. If you're already acquainted with midi slip dresses but haven't yet brought a long-sleeve version into your winter closet, know that they pair well with pretty much everything.

Layer a shorter skirt over the midi dress for a more daring look, belt it to change the silhouette, wear a pair of tall boots that are partially hidden by the skirt to create an interesting silhouette, or pair a cropped leather jacket over it for an edgier vibe. No matter your perfect fit, you’ll find it here — these 12 frocks are begging to be a part of your closet and will be a no-fail option for meetings, date nights, and casual weekdays.
