How to Style Midi Skirts

If you don't own a midi skirt, it's probably because you think they'll be hard to wear. However, once you have one in your wardrobe, you'll be amazed at the versatility and wearability of them. They literally work for every occasion and all weathers - they keep you surprisingly warm in winter, especially with thick tights and over-the-knee boots underneath them, and are comfortable in the warmer seasons too.

Styling midi skirts for cooler weather is really easy and a look like this is practical for muckier occasions like dog walks too! A rollneck jumper and a midi skirt look oh-so-chic together - sometimes the less flesh you show, the sexier you look, especially with a pair of knee-high boots.

Layer a wrap coat and a cashmere scarf on top and you'll be cosy and snug on your winter walks.

We are of course in Spring, not Winter (even though it still often feels like Winter) so here's a way to wear midi skirts in the transitional months - wear knee-high boots over socks rather than thick tights so that you are kept warm but won't overheat. You can then add a lightweight knit like this beautiful pearl-trimmed one from River Island. On the average Spring day, you should be able to go out in this outfit without a coat, but a trench or a leather jacket would work well on colder days.

Satin bias-cut midi skirts are still a huge trend and they are really flattering on curvier figures - but you may want to invest in a clothes steamer because they crease really easily.

Midi skirts are perfect for Summer! Go for an unlined one (which will likely be more affordable too) in a light summery colour like peach so that you don't get too warm. If you don't like having your legs out, this is the perfect style of skirt because you will still feel feminine. Midi skirts also work really nicely with flat sandals on warmer days. You could also swap out the flats for a pair of heels and the outfit would immediately be dressed up for more of an evening look.

Pair with a camisole top in a neutral colour and some big sunglasses and you have yourself a versatile Summer look.

The sausage dog is stealing the show here but hopefully you can pull your gaze away from her to focus on the outfit instead!

On autumnal days, midi skirts work really well with chunky knits. You can layer a t-shirt underneath in case you start to overheat, and if you wear with opaque tights and ankle boots, it's a really practical outfit too for walking the dog, looking around the shops or going to work.

Hopefully this blog post inspires you to try midi skirts! They are a fabulous addition to any wardrobe.
