Midi skirts are the only skirt style to be seen in this summer. Whether you love super-smart pencil cuts or the versatility or the figure-flattering a-line shape, check out this season's top skirt length...
Midi skirts are the essential cut for summer. Forget your maxi and shun your midi, because the in-between skirt style is the fashionistas’ favourite for SS14.
A spring/summer obsession with pleats makes midi skirts the ultimate style staple for the upcoming season. Whether you choose a wide-set pleat to achieve that classic 1950s flare, or a tight, feminine fold for a girlie, flirty look, this essential design detail makes all the difference to the skirt style.
Midi skirts are also the perfect canvas for SS14’s modern florals. Wear watercolour prints and bold blooms to make midis a versatile smart separate. And, to add to that feminine flare, a pastel palette is the ultimate match for this soft, calf-skimming skirt length.
If you’re going for a bolder, more fashion-forward approach, try the sports luxe trend in check mesh fabrics or the hot colour favourite for SS14, monochrome. Shake off the 1950s association once and for all with a midriff-revealing Angora sweater and statement ankle boots, or embrace the style with a sweater and collared shirt. If you’re still not excited, channel a surprisingly urban midi skirt look by teaming it with a logo t-shirt and pastel courts.
