There are so many reasons to love midi skirts. They’re stylish, versatile, and they come in sizes to fit every body. There are petite, regular, and plus size skirts in various materials and colors, so it’s easy to find one or more that you’ll love to wear. Here are four ways you can incorporate mid-length skirts into your wardrobe:
Tunic tops are a must-have for any woman’s wardrobe because they’re flattering for every figure and can be worn with all kinds of bottoms — including the mid-length skirt. Pair a midi skirt with a crewneck or scoop-neck tunic top for a streamlined look that can go anywhere. There are sleeveless and short-sleeve tunics for spring and summer, along with tunic sweaters for cooler weather.
Tunic tops are just as versatile as the midi skirt, so you definitely want one or more in your closet year-round. You can wear them with leggings, jeggings, and skinny jeans to create all kinds of outfits. They come in a variety of colors and prints to make coordinating your outfits easy.
Cashmere sweaters are another great top to pair with a midi skirt. There are cashmere sweaters made for every season; for spring and summer, look for a short-sleeve sweater. A fitted sweater goes well with a flouncy midi skirt, while a looser-fitting sweater coordinates with a slim-fitting skirt. You can go for a cashmere turtleneck sweater or opt for a cashmere cardigan with a lightweight top underneath.
Mid-length skirts and cashmere sweaters go well together, and they come in sizes and styles to suit every body type. You can also switch things up and wear your cashmere sweater with a maxi skirt, or even with a pair of trendy high rise jeans for a look that combines dressy and casual elements.
If you want to give your midi skirt some casual flair, wear it with a fitted T-shirt. This popular top comes in a variety of stylish colors and prints. Look for a cotton-blend top with a touch of spandex for comfort and fit that’s form-fitting but never tight.
When it comes to accessorizing this outfit, choose items with a laid-back look. For example, you could slip on a denim jacket over your tee and/or add a slouchy handbag. A pair of canvas sneakers adds a sporty touch to this outfit; you can also opt for ballet flats or moccasins for all-day comfort.
Another option is to wear your mid-length skirt with a buttoned blouse. There are Oxford shirts, women's polo shirts, and even flannel shirts that you can wear with midi skirts. The type of blouse you choose depends on the look you’re going for. If you want something dressy, an Oxford is a good choice. Polo shirts have a casual yet polished look, while flannels are casual and on-trend for fall.
If you like the layered look, start with a lightweight fitted top, then add your buttoned blouse on top. You can leave the blouse unbuttoned halfway or wear it unbuttoned for casual daytime style. Another idea is to rock a retro look by tying your button-up at the waist.
There are plenty of color combos to consider when choosing midi skirts and tops. A black midi skirt goes with literally every color, so you may want one or more of those. You can wear a black skirt with a white top for a crisp workday style, or pair it with a pastel hue for a touch of soft color. Vibrant shades like red and cobalt blue pair well with black, as do neutral tones such as beige and camel. You can also go for a monochromatic look, which is classic and currently on-trend. A navy midi skirt, for example, could be worn with a knit top in a lighter shade of blue. Or you could pair light gray and charcoal together. The monochromatic color scheme works with any color — think eggplant and lilac or emerald and mint. Experiment with different color combinations to find what you like best.
Another thing to appreciate about midi skirts is that you can wear them with all kinds of shoes. As previously mentioned, midi skirts go well with everything from sneakers to ballet flats. The right footwear depends on the occasion and outfit; for a casual day, go for flat shoes in a slip-on style. Date nights are a good time to wear strappy sandals or your favorite heels.
There’s really no wrong way to wear a midi skirt, so play around with different tops and shoes to discover the outfits that work for you.
