How to wear the midi skirt
02 January 2019
Meet the ultimate wardrobe power player. Not too short, not too long, this modern staple is the perfect halfway house for mastering smart casual dressing. Thanks to its demure, but not too formal hemline, the midi skirt has the power to surpass its sister styles, the revealing mini and dramatic maxi – worn well it can suit any dress code. Pretty and pleated, bold and printed; whatever your style, follow the three rules below to make sure you get it right, every time.
1. Find the right length for your height
Make sure the hemline hits just below the widest part of your calf – this will flatter your ankles and give the illusion of longer legs.
2. Balance proportions
If you’ve chosen a full-skirted silhouette, streamline your top half to strike a flattering balance. And vice versa, if oversized jumpers or T-shirts are your thing, team them with sleek A-line or pencil styles.
3. Keep footwear minimal
This goes for heels and flats – you want the skirt to be the focal point of your outfit, which means simplicity rules. Think classic courts, ankle boots or for a tried and tested off-duty formula – plain Stan Smiths never fail.
