If you’ve scrolled on TikTok or Instagram — or even just looked out your window — on any given day over the past couple of months, then you’ve already realized that the ribbed knit midi dress is the most popular summer trend of 2022.

What makes the ribbed knit midi dress a worthwhile summer trend investment is that it’s basically your classic “throw it on and do everything” casual t-shirt dress, but more elevated and significantly more stylish. You can also lean into the rise of certain popular aesthetics without breaking the bank. From viral trends like coastal grandmother to off-duty model and minimalist basics à la Matilda Djerf, each vibe incorporates functional and timeless closet essentials that you can wear forever.

Scroll down to shop our favorite ribbed knit midi dresses to tap into this season. Enjoy your new unfussy but endlessly chic wardrobe addition.
