As skirt lengths go, the midi skirt is like Goldilocks. Not to high, not too low it’s just right come fall. This season, the age-old style has come alive again on runways at Michael Kors, Fendi and Marni, proving that it’s as malleable as it is flattering. And while it may be all those good things, adding the midi skirt to your existing wardrobe could prove challenging for those used to baring it all. Here are a few helpful tips. Xoxo Mod Girl Sara !
The midi skirt has quickly become a mainstay in my closet. I look for a length that comes just below the knee, which still creates that midi style that we’re going for and combines the elongating effect to remain feminine. I love pairing midi skirts with heels, especially pumps or sandals!
Because it’s a little longer, the midi skirt can be tricky to wear for shorter girls. If you’re petite, just make sure to throw on a little heel, tuck your shirt in or opt for a crop top.
My favourite midi skirts are fuller and boldly hued. The tricks to wearing a full midi is to make sure you keep the rest of your outfit more fitted and add a heel to give yourself some extra height.
My style trick? Wearing the skirt high on your natural waist with a top tucked in draws the eye up and gives you a bit of shape in a skirt that can be a little overpowering in volume department.
