Black Midi Dresses


adidas black midi dresses combine performance and style

adidas has a series of black midi dresses, ranging from competition standard sportswear to street fashion items with a sporty edge. Some of the designs may come as a surprise to adidas fans who are familiar with our extensive sportswear ranges because the fashion-forward cut and detailing of some of the designs are unique to this range and break new ground for adidas. Nevertheless, and as you would expect from Europe’s biggest sportswear company, the emphasis is always on top quality fabrics, stitching, and finishing.

A fusion of sportswear references and fashion trends

Some of the most distinctive adidas black midi dresses take their inspiration from classic adidas t-shirts by reimagining them as dresses. The beautiful simplicity of the t-shirt cut that falls vertically from shoulders to hem is immensely flattering to most body shapes, and the lack of fussy details gives the use of logos and names on a plain, black background maximum impact—especially the oversized Trefoil logo that appears on some of the dresses.

Some unusual fabrics add to the variety of styles in the range

Most of the dresses in the range are made of adidas’s signature soft and stretchy cotton jersey with a trace of elastane to maintain a crisp shape, but there are unexpected additions such as a sleeveless, sundress style in a wool and polyester twill that showcases a subtle sateen sheen on the 3-Stripes detail against the matt black surface of the fabric; or a soft, sexy, polyester velvet for another of the understated but dramatic designs. At the other end of the spectrum are designs informed by the New York tennis scene, manufactured in a high tech fabric that creates a graphical black-on-black abstract surface to set off the simple cut and sporty vibe.
