The Mainstay Midi

The modest and popular style of skirts that made its mark on the 1950s was the beloved midi skirt. Celebrities and housewives alone adorned this style as functional and stylish. It was very popular to sew your own clothing, so patterns for this type of skirt was easy and quick to make at a great price.

Nowadays, women are bringing back the popularity of this skirt length, and weaning away from the shortening hemlines. One of the biggest problems with this popularity is how women of all different shapes and sizes are supposed to wear this skirt. The length, the fabric and the pattern all matters to how flattering it will look on someone. It really comes down to how confident and beautiful you feel in any outfit is what matters. So here are a few ways to wear the beloved midi skirt:

Belt it!

Grab a belt in your closet and cinch your waist to show a more defined waistline and add length to the skirt. This also will break up the proportions on your body and add a focal point, your teeny tiny waist! This belted look will look great as a casual day to day wear to keep the outfit even more interesting. These outfits featured below could be worn to school, running errands or going to lunch with a friend.

Pump it up!

Take your outfit to a new height with a pair of heels! Whether it be a strappy heel or a classic nude pump, adding that extra height will elongate your legs and allow you to look even more flattering and classic. You can be creative and use a heel as an opportunity to add a pop of color or pattern to make an even more interesting outfit. These kind of outfits pictured below could be worn to a Sunday brunch, church or a date night out on the town.

Cover up!

Add a cozy knit up top to add texture and variety to your midi skirt outfit. Not only will you feel extra comfortable in a flowy skirt and a sweater, but the mixture of classy and casual will sure be a show stopping outfit. This combination can be easily transformed from casual to dressy with a statement necklace a pair of pumps, or a scrappy sandal and a leather jacket.
