3 Perfect Midi Skirt Outfits Inspiring Us Right Now

There’s no denying the versatility of a midi skirt—here's how to style it for the summer season.
Six to Sunday

There’s no denying the versatility of a midi skirt: It provides coverage but doesn’t swallow you up, it can be dressed up with a wedge but looks super cute with a sneaker, and it comes in a myriad of styles to flatter all bodies.

One more perk? It can also bridge the seasonal transition—just add a few layers and it’ll seamlessly take you into fall.

Whether you love skirts or have been wondering how to pull them off, here are our STS top styling tips:

  • The skirt should hit your leg in between the widest part of your calf and your ankle. Too high will draw attention to the widest part of your lower leg and if it’s too low you’ll lose the leg elongation.
  • Waist definition wins with the midi! Try tucking in your top, wearing something slightly cropped (a shirt or jacket), or knotting a button town at the waist.
  • Need a top layer? Pair with a waist-length cardigan or jacket.
  • If you have a large chest and/or shoulders, choose a skirt shape with some fullness in order to create balance. If you have a larger midsection, elasticated waists will lend comfort, and don’t be afraid to explore a fun print!
  • If you are more pear-shaped, with weight distribution in your hips and thighs, choose A-line or full styles.
