Midi length skirts and dresses have been popping up in stores for a few months now. A mini skirt is fun, but sometimes a longer length is necessary for venues like the office, family brunch, or a spring wedding. Full midi skirts really kick up the romantic + feminine vibe, while body con midi skirts provide the same effect as a mini while showing a little less leg.
I worked with Forever21 and Express at Towne East Square to bring you a fresh crop of midi length skirts (and one dress for good measure).
1. Midi skirt with faux leather trim (Express)
2. Striped midi-dress (Express)
3. Daisy body con midi skirt (Forever21)
4. Color block striped midi skirt (Forever21)
5. Striped midi skirt (Express)
6. Lace midi skirt (Forever21)
What I love about this trend is that it can range from pretty and ladylike to super femme fatale. If girly and light is your thing, try on this gorgeous coral lace skirt (6) from Forever21. Another option is the classic full black midi skirt- perfect for twirling. I like this Express version with its faux leather trim at the waist (1). I would style both of these skirts with a classic solid t-shirt (cropped if you dare), or a chambray shirt knotted at the waist to cinch everything in.
If bold is more your bag, you've got a few options. Bold prints from Forever21 in the form of black and blue stripes (4) or a happy daisies (3) make a statement. If you're a fan of the body con trend, Express has you covered with this black and white striped midi pencil skirt (5) or this killer striped dress (2). You can work both at the office with a blazer or denim jacket, then shed the outer layer for happy hour with friends.
Adding a few midi skirts to your wardrobe will update your closet and get you ready for spring. And speaking of trends, catch up on what you missed:
