Though rising temperatures can make summer dressing pretty tricky, nothing is more fun and weather-appropriate than the midi skirt.
If you are not convinced, we are here to change your mind. The style is actually the perfect length. Long gone are the days of tripping over your maxi skirt (been there) or giving the whole block a show every time you catch a gust of wind (done that). With the hemline hitting just at or a bit below the knee, you’ll never have to worry about stepping all over your brand-new buy or a Marilyn Monroe style showdown ever again.
Being that the length is more on the conservative side, you can get away with pairing one with your favorite crop tops or bralettes with the skirt; even if your top is on the tiny side, you won’t feel like you’re showing too much skin. Added bonus: You can also easily dress them up or down, pairing with sneakers for a casual look or heels for a night out.
We rounded up the 14 coolest midi skirts of the season, from peplum and pleated to graphic and metallic.
