20 Gorgeous Ways to Wear a Midi Skirt

When it comes to skirt trends, midi skirts are one of the prettiest.

They’re ladylike, they’re timeless and they’re perfect for sooooo many occasions.

They’re also comfortable and easier to style than you think!

Not feeling so sure? Here are 17 ways to style a midi skirt that will make this skirt your new favorite fashion piece.

What Length is a Midi Skirt?

Just like the name suggests, a midi skirt isn’t quite “mini” length and it’s not a maxi length either. (See here for how to style a maxi skirt.)

The latter would hit your ankles and a midi skirt typically comes below your knees but above the ankles.

For this reason, some people find the midi skirt a little tricky to style. But it’s much easier than you think, and such a chic look!

Keep Proportions in Mind

A flowy skirt will look great when paired with a more fitted top. You can do this with a knit top, a bodysuit or crop tops, too.

This knit top is a great way to style a midi skirt in the winter, and is holiday perfection!

Style a Denim Midi Skirt with Boots

The denim midi skirt is a major spring fashion trend. And you can easily wear a midi skirt in the fall or winter months with some cute boots.

Keep it Simple

A midi skirt tends to be dressier by nature, but it looks just as lovely paired with a cotton top or casual tee.

How to Wear a Midi Skirt in Winter

Pairing a midi skirt with a slouchy sweater is a fashion-forward look, but it can be hard to pull off.

To style it right, try slightly tucking in your sweater to create some structure and shape. Stay away from overly bulky sweaters and don’t do a straight-across tuck as this can create some bulk at the waist.

This is a great way to style your midi skirt in the winter that’s on-trend and will keep you warm!

How to Wear a Pleated Midi Skirt

A pleated midi skirt is a fun skirt trend, and you’d style it just the same as any other midi skirt!

Heels, sandals, a cute top and maybe even a skinny belt like this look is all you really need.

Pair Your Midi Skirt with Booties

Yes, you can wear a midi skirt with ankle boots! Even a pleated midi skirt like this one.

For this look, stay away from a mid-rise calf boot as there won’t be enough space between your shoes and skirt.

An ankle boot is fun and edgy, and a great trend to try in the fall!

Crop tops are one of my favorite ways to style a midi skirt! It’s fashion-forward and undeniably sexy.

For this look, consider sizing up on your midi skirt and shop for a crop top you feel shows the amount of skin you’re comfortable with.

I always hike my skirts up fairly high so I’m not showing any belly button.

Try a Slit Midi Skirt

This season’s slip skirt trend has dripped over into midi skirts, and it looks absolutely gorgeous!

This sexy, fashion-forward look is beautiful with its shimmery material. It also allows you to show a little leg with a side slit.

A side slit is a fun way to add some sex appeal to the midi skirt since by its very nature it’s a much more conservative skirt trend.
