Despite common belief, you don’t have to be a skinny mini and you definitely don’t have to be a grandma to wear a midi skirt, you just have to know what to pair it with. Just the other day, our Editorial Director wore a floral midi skirt to the office with a t-shirt and flat sandals. She looked so cute and put together, but she made us wonder what else we could wear midis with. The options are really endless. You can dress midis up with heels or dress them down with denim. Midis are great for work or special events when you need to be a little more conservative. You can’t show off your sexy legs all the time. Save your short skirts for the club. Since we’re still trying to catch on to the midi trend to, we thought we would turn to our favorite bloggers to show you how to wear them, so check out the pictures below and shop their looks.

Wear your midi skirt…

1. With a button-down shirt. Just tie it up and add some heels and jewelry to match. Showing a little skin and wearing high heels will assure you don’t look like a grandma. Although Briony of A Girl A Style‘s skirt is sold out, we found a similar style here.



Get the look: Topshop Antique Jacquard Midi Skirt ($96), Topshop Casual Chambray Shirt ($58), Steve Madden ‘Stecy’ Sandal ($79.95)

2. As a matching set. Although some sets look a little bit too matchy-matchy, you can easily pull off the look by pairing your set with a statement shoe or necklace. Julia of Gal Meets Glam paired her midi set with bold yellow shoes and earrings for a summer wedding. When you look at each of the pieces seperately, you would never think to wear them together, but pairing pieces that don’t match with your matching set will make it less extreme.

3. With a denim jacket. You can transition your midi skirt from summer to fall just by adding a denim jacket. For the summer, pair it with sandals, but in the fall wear flats or combat boots. Midi skirts can be worn any season (except in the snow, obvi).
