Trend Alert: Midi Length Skirts and Dresses

In case you weren’t already aware, the term midi means half way between the knee and ankle. Personally, I love this length for skirts and dresses as I’m not one who likes to show off my legs. However, it can be a bit tricky to pull off for shorter gals like myself. In fact, some fashion experts would say I should avoid this length altogether due to my height. Here are a few rules I follow when wearing the midi length:
  1. Find shoes that elongate the leg, if you are going for a strappy heel, keep it simple, nothing clunky.
  2. Try to make sure that the length hits above the thickest part of the calf.
  3. Give your waist definition, cinch the dress with a belt!
Below are my top picks for midi length skirts and dresses.
Polished Pleated Midi Skirt in Burgundy Modcloth $69. I love the color of this high-waist and pleated midi skirt. Perfect skirt for transitioning into fall.
Snake Print Skirt Zara $49. Animal print will be one of fall’s biggest trends and this Zara skirt is nothing short of amazing. I love how they have paired it with an over-sized sweater, which will be perfect once the weather gets cooler. For now, you could pair it with a fitted tee or top.
Zebra Print Pleated Midi Wrap Skirt Topshop $75 This Topshop option has to be my favorite. Not only is it zebra print but it is a wrap skirt with pleats and a tie waist!
Wayf Blouson Midi Dress Nordstrom $69 I got this dress in the Navy Maritime Floral color and I absolutely adore it. I styled mine with low perforated booties and a long necklace (pictured). I am a sucker for florals and this dress actually comes in multiple color options. I love the fit so much I’m thinking about getting it in another color.
Pleasantville Striped Button Up Midi Dress Vici $72 This rust and white striped dress is a perfect color for fall and I love the button down neckline and tie sleeves.  
Short Flutter Sleeve Midi Dress Target $35 This Who What Wear find from Target is a steal! It’s moody black floral option is perfect for a more formal occasion like a fall wedding.
The options are endless for midi length skirts and dresses and these are all winners in my book!
