How to Style a Midi Skirt - Outfit Ideas and Styling Tipps

Midi skirts can be worn both during the daytime and at nighttime, for a meetup with friends or for work. They reach midway between the knee and the ankle and the length makes them suitable for many different occasions, which is great because you can wear your midi skirt often and get out more of your investment piece. Below are a few suggestions on how to create different looks from such a key piece.

Voluminous midi skirts inspired by the 90s, sometimes with a side slit, sometimes with box pleats, knife pleats, flowing or in the form of an A-line, have since come back into fashion. They are simple yet elegant and are perfect for the transitional season, but also for the holidays, when we like to dress up for Christmas and the New Year with a little glamour.

To ensure comfort and freedom of movement, it's best to choose a midi skirt with an elastic covered waistband, in a flattering length and of a nice quality, such as silk satin.

Wear your midi skirt with a sweater in the same color palette or in white, black or beige for a classic look. If you like contrast and a more daring look choose a sweater of a complementary color e.g. a green midi skirt with a red sweater. Tuck the sweater into the skirt or leave it out for a more casual look. Add some statement jewelry and wear the outfit with boots for outdoor activities or with elegant pumps or sandals when you go to a restaurant or party.

For a chic work outfit, pair your midi skirt with one of your favorite blouses and tuck the blouse into the skirt. Layer it with a matching blazer or a beige or camel colored coat. Midi skirts are great for work as they look professional but still have a feminine touch. Isn't it nice to add a feminine touch to a still oftentimes too masculine business world? Let's women up. Closed-toe heels, flat loafers or (vegan) elegant leather boots are recommended for work.

If you're going out for a cup of pumpkin latte with friends, choose a super comfy oversized knit sweater in beige or another matching color or print. Add a longer necklace or eye-catching earrings and elegant sneakers or flat loafers.

Another way to create an interesting look with a midi satin skirt is to wear it with a long-sleeved shirt and a stylish cardigan or gilet on top. The gilet can be of wool, cotton or even faux fur - anything you like and feel comfortable in. A layered look is perfect for the transitional months and when you're switching between multiple occasions in one day, so that you are prepared for anything. Wear this look with some of your favorite boots for maximal comfort.
