3 Ways To Wear… Midi skirts

They’re one of the season’s most popular trends, but many of us still find the midi skirt a difficult one to embark upon.

Admittedly an awkward length, they sit on that in-between spot where you’re not *really* showing off any leg, but you might find yourself considering a quick wax and/or fake tan. Or not! No judgement here…

But what occasion do they work best for?

As GLAMOUR UK’s resident midi-skirt super-fan, I can tell you with absolute certainty that they work for every. Single. Occasion.

Don’t believe me?

We tried 3 different styles on 4 women with very different tastes.

Look 1: Denim

Denim midis are perfect for a casual, summer weekend relatively regardless of your plans. BBQ with your friends? Cousin’s 21st birthday? Brunch with #bae? Yes yes yes.

Look 2: Floral

If you’re into floral dresses (and who isn’t?), you’ll no doubt find floral midis an easy transition. Find one with a matching top à la Ganni for your next wedding, and pair it with a white t-shirt for the rest of the season.

Look 3: Sheer

Just because they’re not mini doesn’t mean they’re safe. Opt for a sheer skirt atop mini shorts (or a bodysuit if you’re feeling particularly risqué) for a fashion-forward way to wear next-to-nothing.
