Because there is plenty simplicity in a retro midi dress from the 80s.
Hi ladies!! This is a post on a midi dress style that comes from the 80s. Being a baby of the 80s, I just had to sneak into the vintage dress section of Etsy to look around and upon stumbling on an ivory vintage dress in a midi length I know I had to share the collection of midi dresses from the 80s curated by Cluebelle here.
The thing is about midi dresses that gets to me is their unsuspecting charm. I love the peek of legs that can be somewhat restrained relative to a short mini dress. With the 80s vintage dresses from this particular collection, I get excited by their minimalist spin.
The ivory dress has a relaxed shift construction, an overlay jumper style bodice and a dropped waist. One of the two black dresses nails the dignified military style vibe, with front flap pockets and also a dropped waist. The other black dress from the 80s has a contemporary feel. Made in a stretchable fabric, the midi dress has roomy batwing sleeves, fitted bodice and a back zipper closure.
The dresses come in a color palette of black or white which is an ultimately highly wearable that they deserve a special spot in the closet of a fashionista who loves to hoard midi dresses from any era.
I hope you will enjoy looking through the vintage midi dresses below!

“There are, it seems, two muses: the Muse of Inspiration, who gives us inarticulate visions and desires, and the Muse of Realization, who returns again and again to say “It is yet more difficult than you thought.” This is the muse of form. It may be then that form serves us best when it works as an obstruction, to baffle us and deflect our intended course. It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.” — Wendell Berry
