Spring Style: How to Style a Midi Skirt

Spring has sprung here in California and that means time to show off those legs! One of the trendiest styles this spring and summer will be midi skirts, which hit between the knee and the ankle. They’re universally flattering and come in an array of shapes, styles, and patterns. Here are the best ways to style one of these adorable skirts!

This is the epitome of fresh, spring style. The midi skirt has a floral pattern and is fitted, but loose enough to create an easy, breezy look. A crop top goes perfectly with this outfit, but a tucked-in shirt would look just as cute. A sleeveless shirt works best with this midi so the pattern and length don’t overwhelm the look. Add some strappy sandals or wedges and you’ve got the perfect spring outfit!

Midis aren’t just for casual style! A flowy skirt paired with heels and an off the shoulder top look classy and elegant. Stick with soft, muted colors and minimal patterns to keep the outfit classic. Flowy skirts like this one are best paired with tight, fitted tops to keep the volume of the skirt in check.

California style is all about beach wear and casual style. So pairing a midi skirt with a fun print, like this tropical one, with a casual graphic tee or sweatshirt makes the ultimate California-chic outfit. Midis go well with strappy, open shoes that emphasize the unique length of the skirt. Make sure to tuck in the shirt to create a waistline and push up the sleeves for added effect.

Midis aren’t just for casual wear! They become work appropriate when fitted into a pencil skirt style and in an elegant material like lace. Pair with nude heels to elongate your legs and create a streamlined look. If your office allows, spice up your midi skirt with a colorful sweater or fun, chunky accessories!

Play up your long legs or add length to a petite frame with a high-waisted midi skirt in a crazy pattern! It will lengthen your body and create a focal point for your outfit. If your skirt has a bold pattern like this one, keep your top simple – a chambray with rolled sleeves or a white tee will work perfectly. To play up the waistline, add a belt in a neutral color to keep the outfit simple but fashionable.
