9 Midi Dresses That Aren’t Granny
There's been a lot of nakedness going on this past summer from Miley Cyrus to Rihanna at Barbados' Crop Over Festival, and it's enough to make anyone blush. Luckily, as the weather gets cooler, longer dresses are taking over street style looks and they harken back to the days where even knees were to be hidden (let alone boobs and asses, Miley!). OK, so admittedly, midi dresses have the tendency, or at least the reputation for, aging the person who wears them. But there's a reason that the style has become so popular this season (even SHEfinds' own Editorial Director Jeanine Edwards LOVES them), and that's because they are refreshingly modest without being totally conservative. Think of them as a happy medium middle between VMA nakedness and convent modesty. [Photo: Lee Oliveria]
