WHAT IS A MIDI SKIRT
Over the past few decades, midi skirts have made their mark in fashion history with the adorable poodle motifs that were popularized in the 50s to the prim and pleated styles of the 40s. Worn by generations of women, the midi skirt remains a classic in today's dress. The midi skirt is established at the waist and rests at the smallest part of the torso. For a high-waisted midi skirt, the waist may rest several inches above the navel. Often confused with tea-length styles, whose hem rests just above the ankle, midi skirt styles rest a couple inches below the knee, between the calf and the ankle. This length provides a modest yet versatile option. As hem lines have gone up and down over the years, the midi skirt has been a consistent favorite. Its modern silhouette and timeless design make it an instant classic that can be worn no matter your style!
HOW TO STYLE A MIDI SKIRT
Whether you are pining for paisley or doting over polka dots, we have midi skirts in an array of colors and prints! Channel your minimalist side with a black-and-white midi skirt offered in polka dots, stripes, or geometric prints. Pair your classic look with a red or yellow blouse to add a vibrant color to the blocks of black and white. For a dose of freshness, opt for botanicals in soft pastel shades with our floral midi skirts. Punctuate your springtime flare with a white blazer and espadrilles to showcase the subtle hues. Or perhaps you are craving a bold color story dotted with warm shades? We recommend a red floral midi skirt paired with a bright white top and your favorite strappy sandals. If you prefer prints in your tops or blouses, create balance with a solid-colored midi skirt. For example, a burgundy midi skirt or navy blue midi skirt are just the dose of depth you need for a winter-ready ensemble. If you are looking for something light and fresh, pair your printed blouses with a yellow midi skirt or green midi skirt. If you are looking to showcase a favorite print, you can never go wrong with a white midi skirt to brighten pastels and muted tones. With so many ways to style a midi skirt-which style will you try first?
HOW TO WEAR A MIDI SKIRT
No matter the occasion, you are sure to find a midi skirt that will suit the day here at ModCloth. Our midi skirts come in an assortment of colors and styles that will complement your capsule. If you are looking for added details to adorn your outfit, we recommend pleats, if you please. To add volume to the skirt, consider a pleated midi skirt with box pleats. Box pleats add volume, making your skirt appear fuller. For a slimming and subtle effect, opt for micro pleats, providing texture to the fabric while flattering the figure with vertical lines. If you like the look of box pleats, consider shopping for an A-line midi skirt with a wider sweep, which is the circumference of the hem of the skirt. To achieve a full midi skirt look, we recommend opting for a retro petticoat to wear under your midi skirt to provide volume.
