How to Wear a Midi Skirt

For Everyday Events

Heading out for coffee or nipping to the shops? A satin midi skirt can inject an elegant feel into any casual aesthetic.

Just team a plain, neutral option with a graphic tee or basic vest top and trainers for simple yet sophisticated style. Is it a little chilly outside? Swap your top for a thin jumper in a rich hue with boots for a cute and colourful look.

Alternatively, if you’re feeling brave, combine a fun, printed midi with a different pattern on top to create a head-turning, clashing ensemble.

For Smart Casual Affairs

If you want to take your satin midi skirt to the next level for drinks with your other half or a night OUT out, why not opt for a pretty printed version?

Whether you choose an animal, striped or polka dot pattern, let your midi stand out and do the talking by keeping the rest of your outfit understated.

For instance, a chic black or white cami, metallic clutch and barely-there heels would be the perfect complimentary pieces to attract all the right attention.

For Work Purposes

Have you fallen in love with your midi skirt and just want to wear it at every opportunity? Girl, I feel you.

Admittedly, sometimes a midi skirt just ain’t practical for work purposes. Obviously, avoid wearing one if your job requires maximum movement, but if you spend most of your life in an office, you might be okay.

If you choose a neutral version, opt for a pattern on top (or vice versa) to add interest to your outfit. Then finish off the look with a fitted blazer and small-heeled boots or court shoes for professional, power dressing at its finest.

For Special Occasions

The great thing about a midi skirt is that it also works for special occasions if you pair it with the right pieces.

A metallic or pleated option dazzles with a boat neck, halterneck or high-neck satin top and strappy sandals.

Alternatively, a frilly asymmetric blouse would work a treat for a wedding or formal event and take a satin midi skirt from admissible to opulent in an instant.

Mesmerise in a Satin Midi Skirt

It goes without saying that a satin midi skirt is a wonderful wardrobe invention for the modern woman.

Not only does make us look and feel like a queen, but it’s fastly becoming a classic staple with the ability to transcend seasons.

Needless to say, I’m obsessed.
