Raise your hand (or comment below) if you feel like a lady when you wear a midi skirt! I know I do! With a plain t-shirt tucked in. With a silk blouse. With a leather jacket. With a bikini and oversized hat. With like… everything in my closet!
Midi skirts are perfect for spring and summertime. It’s one the few styles you can pull off wearing a revealing crop top with while still looking conservative. It’s also very flattering! A cinched in waist and full skirt can do wonders when hiding areas like hips and thighs.
Styling a midi, however, can be a different story. It’s easy to mess up. Trust me! I’ve definitely done it.
So before you whip out that CC and buy a totes adorbs midi skirt (which is from H&M by the way), check out these five midi rules:
- Choose a high waisted midi
If you know me, you know I like a high waist. Why? Because it helps to draw the eye up and elongate my look. This one, from H&M, sits right above my belly button. Teamed with an eyelet shirt, like this top from Marshalls, it looks super chic for the summer.

- For height, wear a heel
Personally, I think you should wear heels ALL the time but that’s me! I’m also 5’2. Honestly though – considering the length of a midi skirt is longer than usual, I think it’s best to wear heels with it. Doing so will give you a nice long, lean look!
- Find one made out of a cool fabric
Inject some personality into your wardrobe with a midi in a funky print or with one that’s made out of a cool fabric, like denim! #lovethe90s
- Be flirty
For a sexy, but put together look this summer, try wearing a crop top with a leather jacket instead of tucking in a silk blouse.
- Details matter!
Tie it all together with cool accents like aviator sunnies or a structured bag!
