Hi, I’m Lauren the founder of Paneros Clothing and I’m wearing the Magnolia Midi Dress. This is based off of our besting selling Magnolia Mini Dress in white. We brought her back in this beautiful deadstock rayon dobby fabric that has a little texture to it. It comes in this longer midi length. I am wearing a size small which is my normal size. I always have a little bit of extra room in it. I am 5'8"-5'9" and it hits me above my ankle/ mid calf. If you are petite, it will definitely hit you at your ankle. This dress feels amazing on. We used all cotton lace and it has the same hook and eye closure at the front neckline. The neckline is adjustable if you want it lower or more modest or closed up. It has the beautiful seam lines and gathered tiers on the skirt. It has a side zipper to get in and out easily. It's a luxurious, elegant dress that is so easy to wear all year long. I have it paired with boots, but you can pair it with sneakers and dress it up or down. You can pair it with a strappy heel to dress it up if you have an event to go to. It's a beautiful dress that I love. There is plenty of room in the skirt and it's fully lined so it's not sheer. The sleeves have an elastic opening so if you want to push them up and make shorter, you can. The dress gives you a beautiful shape. It comes in underneath the bust and has a beautiful flowy skirt. The neckline is very elegant. The lace covers up the hook and eyes. It has beautiful details of lace. The dress is handcrafted in Bali by our amazing team. I know you will love this dress. You can choose the same size that you have in the mini dress if you're wanting this darker, longer option. It is the same amazing fit as the mini length. The fabric is so beautiful with the texture to it. The sleeves are unlined so they arebreathable, sheer and lightweight. The quality is amazing and the dress is all clean finished on the inside with the lining. The movement of the dress is beautiful. You can always pair a sweater over it like we've done with our other dresses. You just need to tuck it under and add a belt and then you get a beautiful skirt look. Let me show you a few other ways to style it.

It's very easy to casualize this dress by throwing on a denim jacket.  Pair it with some boots or even a sneaker would be great. If you want to pair it with a cropped leather or suede jacket, you can also do that. This is a great piece that you can layer other items with it. It's great for layering jackets, sweaters, or adding a belt. It's a very versatile dress. This looks so cute together with the cropped suede jacket. I love this look paired with the suede booties. You can also wear it with a heel, sneakers, or combat boots. The styling options are endless. A great way to dress it up or create a different look is to add a blazer over it.

If you have our Kate Blazer- this is it in the cherry punch color- it adds a nice bit of color to the look. You can wear it open or button it closed for a blazer and skirt outfit. A black or cream blazer would also look nice.


Here I've paired it with our Kennedy Cardigan. This is an easy, cozy look that you can get. It's a great look if you have any cardigan in your closet, but I love it with our Kennedy Cardigan. You can also pair our Diana cardigan with it which is a bit shorter and cropped. Both of them are great options to style with it. She is a very elegant, effortless dress that you can throw on a go. There are so many ways to dress her up or down and style her throughout the entire year.
