Wondering how to wear a midi skirt? I’ve got you!
If you’ve been hanging around these parts for a while, you’ll know that I’m a mega fan of a midi skirt. What started as one small ‘lazy’ wardrobe addition has evolved into a full on obsession, my eyes immediately darting towards any sassy midis as soon as I walk into my favourite stores. The elegant and effortless style ticks my boxes for many reasons, but thanks to a long-standing hatred for my knees they’ve become a wardrobe staple that I rely on all year round. Not only do they nip you in at the waist and complement curves by gliding over hips and bums with ease, but they also create curves if your momma didn’t grace you with them; they’re one of few fashion items that transcends generations too, with my Nan as likely to wear a pleated midi skirt as I am.
Right now the high street is awash with midi skirts in all colours, patterns and styles – and I’m loving it. What’s great about this wardrobe must-have is that you can dress it up or dress it down, style it from summer to winter with ease, and get it out year after year without worrying it loses its stylish edge. My favourite styles involve a splash of pattern that means you can mix the midi skirt with any number of colours or textures, but if you’re cautiously dipping your toe into the metaphorical water (or wondering how to wear a midi skirt when you’re not really the skirt type,) then there’s one fail-safe way to style a midi skirt no matter your style, age or size: a plain tee.
In my opinion every woman’s closet should hold a plain white and a plain black tee, as they’re an effortless way to style any skirt or dress – while keeping the focus on whatever you’re pairing it with. A midi skirt look doesn’t need to be complicated, so a plain tee is all you need this springtime to rock that look with ease; sometimes it’s the simplest of styles that are the most effective, and a t-shirt is a great way to keep it casual if you’re used to jeans and trainers. I’m all about comfort too, and a plain tee is the ultimate lazy girl way to style a statement skirt (or pop under a floral dress.)
I hope that helps ease the question of how to wear a midi skirt, and gives you the confidence to try it yourself this spring!
