10 Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt

Are you wondering how to wear a midi skirt? Unsure what to pair with this mid-length piece? Or feeling a little cautious about this calf-length cut?

Versatile and seriously stylish, a midi skirt is one of the most adaptable items you can own. Dressed up or down, a midi will take you from the boardroom to the bar and with a little bit of layering, they’re ready for all seasons!

Without a doubt, midi skirts have become a must-have wardrobe staple, and we’ve got all the tips you need to wear your midi skirts all year long!

Here’s how to feel fabulously you with our top 10 midi skirt outfit ideas.

Cool Edge With Leather


A leather jacket is a staple that will instantly rock up any midi skirt outfit. Whether it’s real or faux, a leather jacket is versatile for any style; feminine florals, monochromatic schemes or bright and vibrant colours. Simply pair with biker boots to really finish off the look!


Why not step further out of your comfort zone and opt for a bold biker? Modify your midi with vibrant red or tan, then style with trainers and a white tee to create a chic yet edgy outfit.

Keep It Casual With A Tee And Trainers


Want to create an effortlessly casual ensemble? If you're struggling with how to style a midi skirt, we suggest keeping it simple with a t-shirt. For a warm summer’s day, pair with a light cotton tee, off the shoulder top, or have fun with a quirky print; pretty floral patterns and stylish animal prints will be sure to turn heads!


Our tip tip: By knotting or loosely tucking in your tee, you can keep it casual while still accentuating your waist. Throw on a pair of trainers and you’ve transformed your midi into a comfy, summer-ready outfit!

Cosy Up With A Chunky Knit


Feel daunted at the idea of pairing a chunky knit with a skirt? It’s time to move away from your comfort zone, put those trousers back in the wardrobe and pair your ever loved chunky knit with a midi skirt instead!


When winter begins to set in, a jumper and slip skirt is the easiest outfit to style for those colder months. For a quirky, feminine vibe, pick out a pretty cardigan, or wear an oversized jumper for ultimate comfort – make sure you incorporate the French tuck to avoid losing your waist!

Create Lots of layers


When the weather is cold outside but the heating is blaring indoors, layering up is essential, but it’s also fabulously fashionable. The easiest way to achieve a lovely layered look is by wearing a pair of tights and combining your midi skirt with knee high or ankle boots – you’ll love the added warmth!

 

Cosy up with a cardigan or create a quirky outfit by throwing a thin jumper over the top of your shirt and popping out your collar. Finish off your midi skirt with your favourite coat and you’ll be winter-ready!

Keep It Coordinated


While a midi dress looks divine, a midi co-ord set gives you the same look but is twice as clever – giving you the look of a dress but with the option to wear separately. Additionally, a chic co-ord midi set will give you a longer silhouette, helping you to feel fabulous with minimal effort!


Go bold and pile polka dots on top of polka dots (picture this pretty top with this stunning skirt), keep it classic with monochrome or go bold with bright colours. Whether it's the same colour or a vibrant print, a matching set will give you that fashion-forward edge!

Feel Feminine With Lace And Heels


When it comes to styling a midi skirt, lace is the perfect choice to make you look effortlessly chic and feel confident – creating the perfect versatile outfit for an event, date night or occasion has never been so easy!


Feel ultra feminine by dressing up with a pretty lace top and complete with cute heels or a pair of pumps. Alternatively, if you already own a lace midi, add a lace top for that cute coordinated look!

Dress It Up With A Blouse


Are you looking for ways to make your midi skirt work appropriate? Combine with a classic button down blouse for a polished finish, or make a statement with something bold and colourful. Work, dinner or an evening event, your midi is tailored to all! 

 

To make your midi summer holiday-ready, combine with a breathable cheesecloth shirt. This is sure to create a cool, trendy addition to your holiday outfit collection!

Combine With Longer Outwear


Although a cropped jacket looks ultra stylish paired with a midi skirt, it’s also possible to play with lengths. By combining with knee-length outerwear, you can create a cute silhouette that will also keep you warm in the colder months!


For a seriously chic look, throw on a lightweight duster or a  trench coat, or wrap up in the winter months wear with your warmest wool coat. A longline cardigan is also a great way for you to have fun styling different lengths all year round!

Dare To Drop Your Waist


Longline tops, tunics and jumpers are always wardrobe staples. While they work well with jeans or layered over leggings, they can also be a fun way to change up your midi skirt and create an entirely new outfit! 


Rather than tucking in a t-shirt or pulling in with a bulky belt, opt for comfort and make the most out of these longer options. Creating a drop waist is a great way to add that extra edge to a floaty or floral midi skirt!

Accessorise To Refresh


The best way to add a bit of pizazz to any outfit is to incorporate a range of accessories. From statement jewellery and stylish belts to a trendy pair of trainers, the accessories you choose can make your midi wearable all year round! 


With a cute pair of sandals and a fun stylish bag, you’ll be all set for a day out this summer. For winter, simply switch to a pair of ankle boots and a timeless leather bag; while a floral headband will put a spring in your step and a printed scarf will add an autumnal edge!
