This timeless classic remains an all-time favorite and should be found in your closet winter, spring, summer, or fall! The “midi-skirt” is typically characterized by its length and can hang just below the knee to mid-calf. First introduced in the 1940s, a fashion decade known for its elegance and grace, it was reintroduced in the ‘70s following the mini, and ultimately revived in 2011.
It’s extreme ladylike characteristics and flexibility in pairing is what compels women to purchase this garment time and time again. You’ll love the modest image the midi portrays and feel an element of class whenever worn.
Many prefer the full midi vs. the pencil. This style not only wears well in a multitude of fabrics and prints, but it also flatters every body type. You can count on the full midi to accentuate or provide a waistline! From a slim frame to a full figure, short or tall, curves or not—the full midi is for you. Styled correctly, this polished classic exudes sophistication.
Pairing the top with the bottom is crucial to transitioning this skirt from day to night.
