We love mini skirts and maxi skirts, but the midi skirt will always hold a special place both in our hearts and in our closets. You can use a midi skirt to create so many outfits for tons of occasions just by changing your shirt and shoes.
Midi Skirts Are for Work and Play
One of the most versatile items a woman can have in her wardrobe is a black midi skirt. One that fastens around your natural waist looks great when paired with a variety of shirts. You can create a weekend look by wearing it with a t-shirt and sandals. Wear the black skirt to work by tucking in your favorite work shirt. A quality skirt from a designer like Ann Taylor LOFT or Banana Republic will last for years.
Casual skirts made of denim, or with fun prints, are great in midi length. An A-line pleated midi skirt moves around your legs as you walk. The extra fabric gives your outfit a romantic feel. Pair it with a wrap and tie blouse or one of your favorite button-down shirts for a look formal enough for the office yet casual enough for a weekend gathering or a night out with your friends. Try an A-line floral midi skirt with a monochromatic blouse and a belt for a similar effect.
Make the Midi Skirt Work With Your Figure
Sometimes short women steer clear of midi skirts because the calf-length hem can make them look shorter. Make sure your midi skirt fits well around your natural waist. Wear it with a form-fitting shirt on top, and keep your patterns simple: a floral skirt with a white shirt or a monochromatic skirt with a striped shirt. Wear shoes with a bit of a heel, and avoid boots that disappear under the skirt’s hem.
If you’re tall and have a long torso, you can use a midi skirt that fastens around your natural waist to create length in your legs and shorten the look of your torso. Use the same rules as short women, but make sure your skirt is long enough to actually hit midi length, and you can skip the heels if you want. We know it can be hard to find clothes the right length when you’re tall, which is why thredUP stocks so many skirts from so many different designers. You’re bound to find something that works for you.
For women who want to create an ultra-feminine figure, make sure that skirt is cinched at the waist and flares out around your legs. Fabric like satin, which holds its shape and offers volume, will help create the effect. You want to create a bit of an optical illusion that makes your waist and hips look vastly different in width.
