Why do we love the midi? It’s flattering, feminine, chic, and above all else, as cozy as can be. Twirl, lounge, sunbathe, or stroll … the midi is an impeccable addition to your summer wardrobe.

The key to perfecting the midi skirt is: fit-fit-fit! The waist must be cinched and the length must fall elegantly below your knees. If a tailor is needed to get the fit right, don’t hesitate to have the skirt professionally altered, as it will surely be a mainstay in your closet transitioning well from season to season.

There are a variety of ways to style the midi. If you are planning on wearing a button-down blouse, be sure to tuck it or if you are feeling adventurous, tie it in a knot. Pair it with a bathing suit and a sunhat if you are spending the day at the seaside. For an evening out, pair with a cropped top and lightweight jacket or blazer. If you are wearing a full midi skirt, layer with a bodysuit or a lightweight romper. Pointed toe heels or peep-toe sandals tend to work well with the cut of the midi.

This ladylike style is both elegant and charming. Get ready to shimmy and sway your way through the summer!
