Style Guide: How To Rock Midi Skirts
Seeing trends on runway models is quite different from reality. They have the skinniest bodies and longest legs possible but we, we are real. This is who we are and we cannot change our body type even if we are lusting after that latest trend. However, midi skirts have earned their reputation for being a garment that only leggy ladies or that certain type of women can flaunt. Sure, it can be tricky to master it, but it’s not impossible and our studious sartorial research is here to prove it.
Though it takes us back in time to the 50s, the midi skirts trend is feminine, flattering and the key to mastering a midi is, its length. Since every midi is a full skirt, the trick is to keep it streamlined above the waist with a crop top or a well tucked in blouse. Add a waist-cinching belt to highlight the waistline, to enhance the feminine silhouette. Another tip to keep in mind is balancing the length; either it should fall right below the knee or just above it. Once you find the right length that hits your leg at the most flattering point, you have discovered the perfect skirt. Read on and you will find that we have sorted out beautiful midi skirts that you can wear to work, on a night out and on casual weekends. Also, read our styling tips that will work for every single occasion.
Wearing Midi Skirts to work
Wearing it with a tucked-in cowl neck blouse adds layering that compliments the silhouette. Vintage earrings worn with this completes the whole 50s look. Wear a thin waist band to give you an instant hourglass illusion with minimal effort (saving you a trip to the gym). Nothing’s wrong with that, right?

And finally, Midi Skirts on a relaxed weekend
A classic jean midi gives the right amount of tomboy-ish flair plus you get a strong structured look by adding this red checkered studded shirt. Finally, accessorize the look with a chunky grey and gold diamond necklace. Head out for a brunch or lazy evening, whatever you have planned, as this look will help you fit right in.
Whether you do or do not have your perfect dream figure, wearing it the right way is the key to nailing the midi trend. If you don’t own a midi yet, it’s time you did.
