If you look around the airport, you’ll notice two extremes: people are either dressed to the nines or are decked in the comfiest of comfy clothes — we’re talking oversized sweatpants, hoodies and chunky sneakers. We applaud the people who choose to dress up, whether for business or for personal reasons, but it’s easy to look at them and say, “Wow — as much as I love fashion, that could never be me!”

Maybe you’re thinking it would be nice to meet somewhere in the middle; you don’t need to dress like you’re about to meet the president, but you also don’t need to appear as though you just rolled out of bed. If you want to be stylish and ultra-comfortable at the same time, loose midi dresses are a secret life hack!

The midi length will keep your legs warm enough if the flight gets chilly, but won’t cause them to overheat like sweatpants sometimes do. Plus, it’s easy to layer a cardigan sweater over the dress for upper body temperature control. You won’t be too hot or too cold in a loose midi dress, nor will you be poked, squeezed or itched. We told you — wearing a loose midi dress to travel is a total life hack!

Check out 13 of our absolute favorite midi dresses that’ll keep you comfy, cozy and perfectly temperate…not to mention totally trendy.
