The Midi Skirt Rules

Midis are neither short nor long, but the medium-length skirt style is predicted to be popular for spring. Here are tips for rocking a midi skirt in a figure-flattering and stylish way, as opposed to the frumpy calf-length skirts of yesterday, circa 1990s.

High heels

Add some height to your look to help balance out proportions and create a longer, leaner silhouette. A midi with flats might result in a figure which appears to be stumpy and wide, but a pair of great heels will add sophistication and flair to your ensemble. Your choice in footwear while wearing a midi is especially important. Avoid wearing oxfords, chunky boots or gladiator sandals, and instead stick to strappy sandals, wedges, or peep-toe pumps.

Choose your top wisely

If you decide to rock a midi this season, be careful with your top choices in order to avoid looking heavier than you actually are. With such a modest, flared, and loose-fitting bottom, you’d best emphasize your top half with a tucked-in, fitted blouse which has a feminine silhouette.

Accessorize: The key to pulling off this comfy-chic look is to include some trendy pieces, such as bold jewelry, a skinny belt to define your waistline so your figure isn’t lost under its outline, and a great statement handbag. Try a string of ladylike pearls, a pair of hoop earrings, or an oversized ring to counteract the effect of the down-to-earth and relaxed vibe of the skirt.

Know your occasion: The midi is wonderful for wearing to work, important meetings, formal functions, and especially at that upcoming interview for your potential dream job! It’s a look which is easy to play up and to layer with a smart cropped blazer or a long wrap cardigan. Add a crisp white blouse, your favourite red lip colour, and opaque tights with a dark, pencil-skirt style midi if you want to channel your inner chic secretary. On the other hand, you can also emphasize the casual and cool summer-ready vibe of a brightly coloured cotton mid-length skirt with a plain white tee, your favourite shades, and jewelled sandals.
