Every girl needs a midi dress in her wardrobe. It’s a staple just like the little black dress, only I think it’s a lot more versatile. Sophistication is key when dressing for a professional setting, be it simply to go to work or to wear to a cocktail event later that night. A midi dress is perfect for days when you need to dress for multiple occasions, without feeling over or under dressed. However, the problem with midi dresses is that it’s not always easy to find the right one which is elegant with the necessary level of pizazz to carry off the day to night switch over. Pinghe’s Monica dress definitely gets the tricky balance right. The no-fuss silhouette makes it ideal for the work place and for all the upcoming summer events like for polo matches, June bride weddings and midsummer night’s parties. It exudes understated elegance requiring very little in the form of accessories – simplicity is perfection sometimes. What makes it one of my favourite Pinghe pieces is the beautiful detailing scattered around the dress. The python contrast panels around the neck line and the waist accentuates the female form in a very graceful way and the laser cut shapes and embroidery at the back are youthful and sweet. The dress is definitely a summer essential which is versatile and timeless.
