7 Dress Trends That Still Look So Classic

We recently tapped 56-year-old New Yorker Elaine Davis for her advice on the easy and sleek items she added into her arsenal to upgrade her on-the-go wardrobe. And while age clearly has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, we were curious about her expert style guidance as an over-50-year-old, in particular, given her years of sartorial experience. Well, after recently catching up again with the mastermind behind @squarepearls, she revealed that one of her key wardrobe staples just so happens to be the midi dress.

Here’s what she said: “I absolutely adore midi dresses. They’re a great length when you don’t want a maxi, but you do want a tad bit more length than what a just-below-the-knee dress offers. Midis can be flared, straight, tiered—you name it. They’re just so versatile.” So with that said, we thought there could be interest in the specific midi-dress outfits Davis swears by to look chic for her life in NYC.
