Today’s post is all about the midi skirt. It’s not exactly a new trend, but it’s one I’ve kind of stayed away from until quite recently because of my petite stature. None the less it’s been a huge trend the last few seasons, and I finally decided to add one to my wardrobe and I have to say I’m smitten with this classic skirt.
At first look, the midi-skirt might seem like a challenging length, but actually it’s very flattering. Nipped-in waist and with a body-accentuating shape, the midi skirts hit your leg at the skinniest part of your ankle, giving you an extra visual boost in height while looking very flattering. It epitomizes class and elegance and it’s actually extremely versatile with endless styling opportunities. It’s also a great option for the fall and winter when those micro minis and knee length dresses might not be so weather friendly.
Midi skirts are the classic lady-like addition to you closet and can be worn so many ways, casually with tuck your graphic tee into the waistline and some cool sneakers or dressed up with a sweater and some boots. In today’s OOTD, I’ve paired my pleated midi skirt with a cropped lace top, both from Romwe. And then paired it with another one of my favourite trends this season, sock boots from Shein. It’s perfectly pretty and a perfect for a little dinner date night out.
1. Add a denim jacket and sneakers
Plain white sneakers make any midi skirt look more casual (and they feel comfortable too). Pair it with a denim jacket for a bit a laid back cool
2. Wear it with tights.
On those colder days, wearing your midi skirt with tights are an easy way to still look feminine while staying warm.
3. Pair it with a button down shirt
A casual button down tucked in to your midi skirt is a perfect autumn ready look
4. Add a leather jacket and ankle boots
layering on with a classic leather jacket adds cool edge to this feminine trend. Opt for one that is more fitted so it doesn’t overwhelm your frame. Pair it with some ankle boots or combat boots give a feminine skirt a little bit of an edge
5. Tuck in with a sweater
Wear your midi skirt with a fitted sweater and tuck it in to make the look more polished. Ankle boots are also a definite go-to.
6. Wear with heels to instantly look more put together
Pair of heels instantly elevates the look and take the midi skirt for day to night
7. Paired with a cropped sweater
You know those awkward cropped sweaters that you never know how to wear? Well, they look awesome with a high-waist midi skirt. Wear your combo with flats to stay comfortable and more casual.
8. Go professional with a blazer
A blazer makes everything instantly look more put together and professional. With a midi skirt, pick one that is more fitted and cropped, and hits at the waist, so it doesn’t look too big.
