Where transeasonal dressing is concerned, there are few styles that measure up to the midi skirt. Touted for its ever-so easy shape (and lately, its countless colorways) it’s what we so rightfully call go-anywhere style, exemplified. As of late, you may have noticed no less than a bevy of social influencers bedecking themselves in the number at any given moment. And, who can blame them? The prints are playful, the fabrics, often superbly silky, and the wearers? Endlessly eager to slip one on and and subtlely deliver a lesson in statement dressing to all who bear witness. It’s no wonder this pervasive piece, now revamped for today, has become a mainstay in the closets of bloggers, celebrities, and all those fashion aficionados worth their salt.
If you’re like myself currently, you may be in the midst of transitional weather and all of the styling dilemmas that come with it. Fluctuating from brisk to beyond balmy, the unpredictability of today’s temps is enough drive even the most seasoned fashionista completely mad. Enter the midi, the foolproof solution to all-weather wardrobe planning. With today’s takes translating from day to night, and moreover, from season to season, it’s the one piece your closet eternally needs. Breezy mornings? Pair your midi with a cami and leather jacket for a cozy downtown cool sensibility. For an office sophisticate look, style it with a crisp button-down. Or, go off-duty by coupling it with a minimal, pared-down white tee and a pair of sneaks. The possibilities are truly endless for this enduring staple. So, go ahead, slip yourself into one of these marvelous midis and you’ll be on your on your way to influencer status in no time.
