The Fashion Chronicles: Midi Skirt
Styling your Midi Dress.
by Shop By Amy
With summer winding down and autumn fast approaching, the midi skirt is the perfect wardrobe staple for tricky transitional dressing. As you look forward to switching things up with the change of the seasons, a midi-length skirt can be an excellent option to reach for that can be breezy enough for the late summer heat and still be part of your rotation in the months ahead.
The midi skirt can be an easy way to create your own personal blend of summer and autumn styles. Whether you’re more into swishy pleated numbers, breezy wraps, classy satin slips, edgy leather, romantic lace, or a bit of everything, it’s easy to create the perfect outfit for the occasion just by what you choose to pair your midi skirt with.
SHOP BY AMY offers a wide range of midi skirt sets and midi skirted dresses, from structured neutrals to bright and vibrant flowing pieces and everything in between. So for your next special occasion, browse our website to find the perfect outfit for you.
The Giovanna Two-Piece Skirt Set in hot pink is great for a vibrant statement look. Its tailored style creates a form-fitting silhouette that works equally well for both day and evening occasions. This skirt set features a hot pink collarless blazer top with button closure that is paired with a contrasting neon yellow/green pouch belt for a vibrant pop of color. The matching hot pink midi skirt features a daring slit on the side.
When shopping for midi skirts, remember that they can come in a wide range of different shapes and lengths. To find the length that best flatters your body shape, look out for a midi skirt with a hem that falls just above or below mid-calf, avoiding a hemline that will hit right at the thickest part of your leg.
Those who are looking to lengthen their silhouette might consider a midi skirt with two contrasting layers. A longer top layer can help distribute the fabric and create the flattering illusion of a longer dress without being overwhelming.
If you haven’t experimented much with midi skirts, a black midi skirt could be a great addition to your wardrobe. And in a neutral color, it can pair well with many of your favorite pieces.
- If you’re a fan of bodycon silhouettes, a stretchy black midi skirt in jersey can be a great choice. The style offers the structure of a pencil skirt and hugs your hips while also offering enough give for a comfortable fit and room to breathe.
- A satin black midi skirt is a classic, suited to a range of different occasions. For a dressed-down look, pair it with sneakers or flats and a tee. For a look that will easily transition from day to night, pair it with a chunky, cozy knit and booties. And for a look that’s minimalist and equally at home in the office or out and about, pair it with a bright blouse to add a touch of vibrant color to your outfit.
