I’ve got 99 problems and my go-to midi tank dress solves just about all of them. Not sure what in the world to wear to a date night? Midi tank dress. Want to look cute but also let my legs breathe in the Chicago heat? Midi tank dress. Need to wear a fit that’ll easily transition from daytime to nighttime? Midi tank dress.

We love when fashion meets function, and styling a midi tank dress is the perfect solution when it comes to keeping fashion as effortless as possible. Take the guesswork out of your next impending outfit crisis. Here are six ways to style one of the most versatile pieces in your closet: 


1. A Saturday morning at the farmers market:

striped midi dress / striped midi dress (plus size) / denim jacket / denim jacket (plus size) / leather backpack / gold hoops / round sunnies / white sneakers

A morning at the farmers market has never looked better. Couple a midi tank dress with a cropped denim jacket and sneakers for what might be the most put-together Saturday of all time. If we had to pick one outfit to wear on repeat until the end of time, this would be it.



2. A long-awaited girls’ night out:

scoop neck midi dress / scoop neck midi dress (plus size) / baguette bag / stiletto heels / herringbone necklace / hoop earrings

Rooftop drinks, a night out at the bar, or a fancy dinner with our besties is our idea of a good time, and we couldn’t do it without the help of the all-classic little black dress. Pair with gold jewelry, stiletto heels, and your favorite shoulder bag for a look you’ll return to again and again.



3. A weekday in the office:

ribbed jersey dress / midi dress (plus size) / plaid blazer / plaid blazer (plus size) / oversized tote / leather mules / rectangular sunglasses

After over a year of working from home, our tolerance for uncomfortable workwear is at an all-time low. When we transition back to the office, we’ll be reaching for our comfiest midi tank dress, pairing it with an oversized plaid blazer, and slipping on some leather mules that are just as comfortable as our WFH slippers.



4. An outdoor concert: 

ribbed midi dress / ribbed midi dress (plus size)leather backpack / aviator sunnies / white sneakers / layered necklace

We love an outdoor concert moment, and nothing pairs better with dancing the night away and singing at the top of your lungs quite as well as a midi tank dress, comfy sneakers, and aviator sunnies. It’s the perfect outfit formula for a night of drinks, bad dance moves, and your favorite band.



5. A downtown date night:

knit midi dress / midi dress (plus size) / leather moto jacket / leather moto jacket (plus size) / gold bracelets / shoulder bag / heeled sandals

Dressing up a midi dress by pairing it with a leather jacket and gold jewelry is the ultimate way to elevate your look for a fancy night out with your partner. She’s chic, she’s cool, and she’s a look we turn to time after time.



6. A mid-Sunday picnic in the park:

ribbed knit midi dress / midi dress (plus size) / claw clip / cat-eye sunnies / straw tote / slide sandals

For a mid-Sunday picnic in the park, keep things simple. Reach for your comfiest “might-actually-be-a-nightgown” midi dress and throw your hair up in a chic claw clip. Also grab a large straw tote to house your water bottle, your latest page-turning novel, and cat-eye sunnies that pair well with a day in the sun and obligatory people-watching.
