Although there are trends each season in skirt and dress lengths, you can wear pretty much any length you want to now. But a Midi length can be tricky to wear without it looking frumpy. Below are my tips and some suggested outfits for how to wear a Midi skirt.
How to wear a Midi skirt
If you have a long body and short legs, look for a length that sits just below the calf where your leg indents (this shows off the slimmest part of the leg) and wear a heel to lengthen the leg. A pointed toe works especially well, as does a crop jacket or top.
On the other hand, if you have a short body and long legs wear a longer length top or jacket to balance out the length of the skirt.
With a fitted skirt add some volume in your top with a looser fit and vice versa for a full skirt wear a more fitted top.
How to wear a Midi skirt on holiday
Here I have balanced the top and bottom with a longer length top. You could add a wedge sandal if you want to lengthen your legs but still keep the relaxed feel of the outfit.
How to wear a Midi skirt for a smart casual look
I’ve made this outfit relaxed with a casual jacket and added a seasonal trend bag. Alternatively wear the skirt with a blouse and blazer to take it from smart casual to smart.
How to wear a Midi skirt for the evening
For the evening look I have just used two colours and added gold jewellery, picked up with the gold on the bag. I’ve chosen white shoes, rather than gold to keep it modern.
I think Midi skirts can look so elegant, I will definitely be wearing one this season. The 3 options above are all reasonably priced and below there are some more options.
