Midi outfits are easy to style whether you're going to work, a family function or any party. In fact, it's one of the best garments to wear due to its length. With a slew of fashion icons sighted wearing this trend in public, it's safe to say that midi outfits are still dominating the industry. That includes the Clozette Community. Scroll away to curate ideas for your next outfit!
Everyone has set their eyes on Gemma Chan since she starred in the television hit Humans and, of course, the much-loved Crazy Rich Asians movie. Why wouldn’t we? She steals every scene she’s in and slays every red carpet she walks. Now having appeared in historic film Mary, Queen of Scots and sci-fi superhero movie Captain Marvel, she’s rumoured to show her acting prowess once again in another upcoming Marvel film, The Eternals.
The Eternals will be set millions of years ago focusing on cosmic beings called Celestials. Though she previously played Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel, it’s yet to be revealed whether or not she’ll play the same role in the 2020 film. If she ends up with a new character, it’ll be the first time a star plays two different roles in the iconic cinematic universe.
If anything, this just proves that Gemma’s great fashion taste was already present in her childhood. In this throwback to the ‘80s shot, she twins with her sister wearing polka dresses that are now resurfacing in the trends.
Gemma shows us how to stylishly beat the heat with this striped tiered dress. She amps up the charm with the tied straps and layered necklaces, completing a subtly sweet look perfect for a casual sunny day out.
A sweater-pants combo would usually make a pretty plain outfit, but she takes it up a notch by choosing a snazzier pair of slacks. Who knew electric blue leather would be perfect with a pale yellow knit? Finally, she literally heightens up the chill ensemble with pointed bright blue stilettoes.
Suit up and relax
She made the impossible possible by making power dressing quite the relaxing affair. This soft and less structured blue suit paired with coloured sneakers somehow worked stunningly. It’s even more refreshing since Gemma Chan is usually spotted at events wearing a more structured and sleek combo.
Perhaps one of the best suit outfits, mainly because of the unique colours that power this number. The funky print gives us a retro vibe that stays between sophisticated and casual.
This Ralph & Russo number for Captain Marvel world premiere couldn’t be more perfect. The pleated asymmetrical blouse and slacks that were iridescently fringed helped her slay the cosmic red carpet.
Rich in pink
Finally, who would forget this lovely pink number Gemma Chan wore on her first Oscars attendance? The frilled collar and the tiered billowing tent gown was perfect with a simple updo. She really looked like a real-life Astrid Teo from the Crazy Rich Asians book trilogy.

In the fashion world, the climate is changing. More and more brands are becoming aware of how important it is to be inclusive in all their messaging, especially for campaigns. COACH's Fall 2019 campaign, in particular, is a prime example. Creative Director Stuart Vevers unveiled his new vision for the New York-based heritage brand this season with the help of a diverse cast of, as the brand puts it, "21st Century dreamers pursuing infinite possibilities in the city of New York."

This includes Michael B. Jordan, Kiko Mizuhara, Yara Shahidi, Jemima Kirke, Lolo Zouaï, Miles Heizer, and the newest Coach ambassador, Liu Wen. The campaign was shot in iconic locations around the Big Apple like Lower East Side, Central Park, the Manhattan Ferry, and Brooklyn Bridge. To capture the essence of COACH's Fall 2019 campaign, Stuart Vevers had photographer Juergen Teller and director Todd Tourso (known for his work on Beyoncé's music videos) on board.
The Troupe: your office buddy
Modelled by Liu Wen, the Troupe Bag is nothing but sophisticated. Its sleek structure makes it the perfect pick for busy gals who want a reliable bag that's roomy and can be easily carried from one meeting to another. Another thing that we love about this piece is its versatile shade that can be paired with any business outfit.
