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?

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.
