How to Wear the Midi Skirt & Dress Trend

If you have your eye on the fashion scene, I’m sure you’ve peeped out the midi epidemic. Skirts and dresses that are neither too short nor too long have made waves in the closets of fashion lovers everywhere.  Women are channeling the vintage flare of middle length full length skirts with a modern twist. If the fear of looking frumpy has kept you from trying this look, fear not; we’ve put together some tips to help you pull it off.

Pick the right length for you height

Midi dresses are surprisingly easy to style but there is no one size fits all. If you tried on a flared midi dress and instantly felt frumpalicious, it could be the length. If you are on the petite side, opt for flared midi skirts that reach just below the knee to avoid drowning you out. On the other hand, if you are on the taller side, mid calf is a sweet spot for your lovely long legs.

Be bold or go home… well not really

If you’re up to the challenge, your full flare midi skirt is the perfect place to make a statement. Go all out with funky prints, strikingly bright colors, and one-of-a-kind textures. Get as graphic as you like and wear your confidence to match.  Pulling these looks together with a solid top is a good idea to avoid appearing costumey. On the contrary neutral solids work just as well if you aren’t about the funk!

Tone down the girly factor with a moto-jacket

If you are feminine but not quite prissy, rocking a leather moto over your look will bring you to that happy medium you desire. Instantly add an edgy factor to your otherwise dainty look. Who doesn’t looking like they can bake a mean apple pie from scratch and ride a motorcycle through a Miami street in the same day? This is a fun marriage between two extreme opposites.

Crop top it if you dare

Crop tops are on trend but that doesn’t mean they’re for everyone. Still, there’s no denying just how heavenly the combination of a crop top and a midi skirt is. This is a great way to balance the vintage element of full circle skirt with chic modern vibes. If you’ve got the abs and the confidence to rock a semi-bare tummy, knock yourself out sister!

Pencil it

The timeless allure of a pencil skirt is perfect for so many occasions. They can be executive enough to wear to work, sassy enough to rock to a cocktail party, and comfy enough to run errands. We love things that serve more than one purpose! With pencil midis you can dispel the length rules. Petite ladies look just as great at mid calf as statuesque sisters look in skirts that reach just below the knee. Either way, this look keeps you lean and chic!
